Last Thursday morning we jumped on a plane for a three day, two night trip to Nantucket and it was heavenly. I didn't know what to expect and honestly a part of me thought that all the hype would turn out to be overrated. Well, it wasn't! When we were on our way back to the airport on Saturday I kept saying to Frank, "I can't believe that was only three days...I feel like we've been on vacation for a week!". My sister-in-law rented a house from Saturday to Saturday that was in the best location and central to everything. It was a 15 minute walk to town and about a 25 min bike ride to this restaurant and Madaket beach. I would have walked anywhere on this island and I kept reminding myself to soak it all in - the smell, the flowers, the perfectly aged gray houses - it was all perfect.
If you're traveling with kids this company is amazing! They rent out everything from car seats to sound machines. If you're flying to the island its a must. We brought one stroller but rented a second once we realized we were going to walk everywhere.
If you're looking for a casual lunch I lived here. If you follow me on Instagram and saw my stories during the trip you're probably laughing. I LIVED there!
We went here for dinner the first night - very good and kid friendly! Request to sit outside though. The dining room by the bar and the one below are dark and not the vibe I was going for dining on an island.
We went to Galley Beach on Friday for dinner. It is gorgeous at night and the sunset is not to be missed. The only reservation we could get was either 5:30pm or 8:30pm so we went with the latter. We met our friends Mackenzie and Will for a drink around 7 and took pictures. If you're thinking of heading here with kids I would say its kid friendly on the earlier side. Our boys can usually handle staying up a little later but dinner on the beach, in the sand, and in the dark (by candlelight) was too much! We definitely ended up shoveling our $48 entrees in our mouthes!
