The charm of Nantucket


I just finished reading a book of my fave author, Jane Green. This time the book is "The Beach House". The setting of the story was in Nantucket. I had always had a crush of Nantucket. The place is so charming and calming. I even had a posting about how to dress in Nantucket. Click here to see the post. Why do I like the place? I love every single thing about it, but what I like the most is that it is located by the sea. I often imagine myself live there. And when I read the book, it's like a coincidence that my fave author had Nantucket as the main setting of the story. The story is about friendships of strangers who have never met before. Out of nowhere, they end up being in one vacation house in Nantucket with their own different problems. Amazingly, they have bonded and became more than friends, they became a family. It was a really touching story about how people have to know that there are other people who love them out there, even strangers can be family.Here's a general info about Nantucket:
Nantucket is an island 30 miles (48.3 km) south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, in the United States. Together with the small islands of Tuckernuck and Muskeget, it constitutes the town of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and the coterminous Nantucket County, which are consolidated
Here's the review from Yahoo! Travel about Nantucket:
Old Nantucket lives in the Nantucket you visit today. The combination of 18th and 19th Century buildings and the cobblestone streets will make you feel as though you have stepped back in time. Antique shops, historic sites, charming inns and interesting museums are yours for discovering; with the added bonuses of dramatic scenery, miles of unspoiled beaches and plentiful nature preserves. With few cars and no traffic lights, beach-goers and sightseers, cyclists, strollers and happy ice-cream eaters lend to the charm and personality of Nantucket, making it a popular destination for people fleeing larger cities for vacation and weekend getaways.

Nantucket is very beautiful place to see. There are lot's of way to go Nantucket like by Boat, Air etc. Staying around the Nantucket Island is great idea, there are so many traditional guest houses that line the streets of downtown.

Thanks for the share. The island sure does have its own unique charm and culture. My family and I have been staying in a Nantucket Rental property every summer for the past 7 years and I can't see my family and I ever breaking that tradition. I can't really put my finger on what it is but something about it there just keeps pulling us back year after year.
