Nantucket Marina

Coming for a day or a week there are plenty of things to do in Nantucket for a very low cost or free. Here are my top 3 things to do in Nantucket that you should not miss.

Bike the Island

Another fantastic way to see Nantucket is biking the 14-mile island. Young’s Bicycle Shop is a 3rd generation family-owned shop where you can rent bikes for your adventure ahead. Whether you’re taking a scenic ride through Sconset or a ride that will end at Surfside Beach, it’s the perfect way to spend the day.


If you’re looking for a great beach day on Nantucket, there are an array to choose from. Jetties beach is an easy walk or bike from town, Surfside beach is a 3-mile bike ride perfect for a relaxing day and Children’s Beach is a great little beach for little ones that is totally assessable from town.

Walking Tour

A professional walking tour like the Historic House Walking Tour that departs from The Whaling Museum is a great way to see the people and places that make Nantucket the perfect resort destination. Take in the beautiful cobble-stoned streets and the architecture of the homes that make the island unique all with a knowledgeable guide.

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
