Nantucket Holiday Stroll - Nantucket

There are times when you need to escape. Forget your worries. Act like a kid again. Those times call for a trip to the Cape or one of the islands.


Each locale offers sun-splashed beaches and a laid-back attitude, yet all are unique in their own right.


Famous for its rolling dunes and gable-roofed, gray-shingled houses, Cape Cod is where you'll find outdoor activities and loads of fun family attractions. On Martha's Vineyard, a 45-minute ferry ride from the mainland, you'll stumble upon quaint shops, natural sites, fine dining and lively nightlife throughout six picturesque towns. Then, of course, you have Nantucket. Located 30 miles off the Massachusetts coast, this island is characterized by cobblestone streets, antique stores, lighthouses and acres of conservation land.


Rail service from Boston to Cape Cod is returning for the first time in almost 25 years.


Take the time to find yourself on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, where all that matters is what matters to you.
