NANTUCKET weekend recap


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!
