Nantucket - What to Do
Welcome to my third installment of Nantucket travel review. You can find my first here and second here. As many of you know there is plenty to do in Nantucket. In our three days, we jammed a lot in but never felt rushed. Because the island is so small you can pack your day full of many sights to see.
On Friday we decided to head to Cisco Brewers for some lunch and beers. Since it was a gorgeous day out, we decided to rent bikes from Cook's Cycles and ride there. We were unsure we wanted to ride back after having a couple beers so the wonderful folks at Cook's said we could lock our bikes at Cisco and they would pick them up.
Since Drew lives there we took the scenic route and got to see so many beautiful homes. Many people name their home out there so it was fun to see what people come up with. Some were funny, some were cheesy. My favorite was "Jantucket".
We drove by this beautiful field so we had to stop for some photo ops.
Cisco is a blast. You can sample beer, wine and vodka. I had a couple beers and also tried their sangria which was great. The people watching is also really fun. I loved the outfit in the bottom right photo (crochet top and fun see-through skirt) so I had to snap it.
After we had breakfast on Saturday, we were ready to explore again. Drew rented a jeep so we could drive around the island. We drove through Siasconset which is a really cute town center with a small market, post office and clothing store. On our drive we saw a scary old house (on the Sconset bluff walk) that I had to get out and look at. It truly looks like it belongs in a horror film. We peeked around and there was actual furniture still left in the house. The grounds are impeccably kept up so someone must watch over it. And the view from the house was amazing. I am so intrigued by this house. It must have a story.
We then proceeded to Sankaty Head Light which I had never been to. When Scott and I got married, all the tables were named after a lighthouse, Sankaty being one of them so it was nice to see it in person. It did not disappoint. It is such a beautiful structure overlooking the ocean.
We then proceeded to Sandbar at Jetties Beach for a light lunch. The weather was a bit cool to eat outside but still a great spot since there is plenty of indoor seating and a bar.
We then drove out to Madaket to hit 40th beach. The day was cloudy and forecasted for thunderstorms but we really wanted to check it out since it's a drive on beach. We will certainly hit this spot again on a nice day. The beach is beautiful.
On Sunday we had brunch and I did some shopping so stay tuned for the next Nantucket post....all about shopping!
