YÜxxwÅtÇËá Éy atÇàâv~xà When did you discover your creativity? After getting a degree in industrial engineering and then years in the Coast Guard, I became a partner in a design business. I discovered an unending creative side, I was working so hard that I went to see a “guru” to help me explore my spiritual side. That expanded my artistic side tremendously.

How did you start creating the beautiful and unique items you sell today? I realized that my work needed to be more tactile…more sensual. During a trip to India, I saw a tapestry that was unattractive and poorly made— a novelty piece. I thought this could be beautiful if I just changed the design and the color. I started working with artisans there to change what they did with their pieces and to improve the quality. I was selling wholesale, and that business just grew and grew: we were in some of the best stores in the country.

What brought you to Nantucket? I decided to sell the business and semi-retired to Nantucket. I opened a small shop on the Wharf. It was so successful that later we moved to this location at 14 Centre Street. With the size of this shop, I can make a real statement.

You always have something new in your shop, what’s new for 2019? There are too many new items to list, like a 21inch end table that is a copy of a watch and picture frames made out of quartz and agate and burlwood. We’re the perfect place to shop for someone looking for something different — we never have the same-old, same-old… everything here is unique.

How do you keep your creative energy flowing? For me it never ceases! If I’m not being creative in the store, then I’m creative at home, in the garden… It’s rewarding; it’s an affirmation that I’m okay! People come into the store and say it’s like a museum, and I find that deeply gratifying!

Benvenuti Bienvenido Huānyíng

Welcome Nantucket’s noble history belies its small stature and yet, it has been named to every imaginable list of superlatives — including Best Island in the World — by those trusted to evaluate sheer greatness. This windswept island’s four-century arc of history is an evolution from a stark crescent-shaped sand spit populated by kindly Wampanoag Indians who first welcomed English-speaking settlers in 1659 to America’s best-preserved seaport and most desirable island destination today. In the intervening years, Nantucket was perhaps young America’s best-known town. Its prominence as the whaling capital of the world brought untold wealth to the island, much of which is preserved today in its 800+ pre-Civil War mansions and other structures. The entire 48 square miles have been acclaimed a National Historic Landmark, a unique appellation in America. Nantucket’s distinction lies not only in grand hotels, sumptuous restaurants, impressive yachts and sprawling waterfront homes, museums, au courant boutiques and eclectic shops. On this island, visitors find enchantment and experiences far beyond what they came for. Best,

David Martin President/CEO

History Nantucket’s rich history – from a sleepy 17th-century farming community to its centenary reign as whaling capital of the world, to its current incarnation as an art and resort colony – is replete with many facets that contribute to its inimitable charm. This charm is owed, at least in part, to the ongoing – and fiercely dedicated – conservancy of its remarkable resources, both natural and built. The island is fortunate to boast some of the finest 18th and early 19th-century architecture in the nation. Its historic core was proclaimed a National Historic Landmark in 1966, a designation extended to the entire island in © Cary Hazlegrove 1971. Since 1955, the Nantucket Historic District Commission has regulated the exterior appearance of new construction as well as changes made to existing structures throughout the island in an effort to safeguard Nantucket’s historical integrity. Thanks to the stringent efforts of the Conservation Foundation and Land Bank, acres of conservation land remain untamed, evidenced by glorious open vistas like the Serengeti-like Middle Moors bordering the Milestone Road. Testimony to Nantucket’s commitment to the preservation of arts and culture – both architecturally and in practice – 18 historic structures in the Core area of Downtown alone continue to function as museums and galleries, as well as venues for theater, music, learning and research, and culinary pursuits. Six of the buildings house theaters, a box office and art gallery. Six are places of worship, including Unitarian, Catholic, Episcopal, Quaker, Congregational and Methodist denominations. There’s also an Aquarium, a Whaling Museum – accredited by the American Association of Museums – and the Atheneum, our island library. All lie within an easily walkable range of 28 short blocks! More details can be found at nantucketchamber.org.

Nantucket: A Haven for Birders By Ken Blackshaw

Author of Eight Books about Nantucket’s Birds

Surrounded by beaches and salt water, Nantucket is a prime locale for birds of all kinds. You’ll discover species you may not find elsewhere—cool wading birds, gulls and terns in the summer—while winter is a prime time to spot gannets, black and white penguin-like alcids, and perhaps a Snowy Owl. At the eastern edge of north America and the western edge of the Atlantic Ocean, Nantucket is often the last land mass encountered by lost birds from western North America, or the first ray of hope for other species straying from Europe. The Cornell database reveals 364 different species recorded here, with an amazing 250 logged in a single year. Many of these birds are not readily found elsewhere in the United States and unique species attract birders to Nantucket throughout the year. Nearly half the island is preserved and free from development. It’s easy to reach the shoreline to view shorebirds, gulls, terns, sandpipers and many others in the warmer months. In the off-season, Nantucket presents an aweinspiring ‘gull show’ featuring thousands of Bonaparte’s Gulls, rare ‘white-winged’ gulls from the north, and several gull species crossing from Europe. Incredible flights of Long-tailed Ducks—numbering in the hundreds of thousands—cross the west end of the island daily to feed in the Atlantic, providing an awesome spectacle.

Two on-island organizations providing most of the birding opportunities for visitors are the Maria Mitchell Association (MMA) and the Linda Loring Nature Foundation (LLNF). Bird aficionados can meet at the MMA Aquarium at 28 Washington Street for a 6:30am bird walk on Friday mornings from mid-June to early September. One night per month, MMA also offers an “owl prowl” departing from the MMA offices at 4 Vestal Street. The LLNF offers birdwalks every Wednesday—May through October—starting at 110 Eel Point Road. Both organizations are happy to schedule private bird ventures upon request. The local Inquirer & Mirror weekly newspaper features a bird column written by Ginger Andrews. This insightful piece features the latest bird news and up-to-date information on local birding opportunities. Both Mitchell’s Book Corner and Nantucket Bookworks carry copies of the indispensable guidebook “Birding Nantucket”— a veritable bible for birders—as well as many other great titles devoted to Nantucket’s birds at every season. You’re never far from a bird on Nantucket, and viewing the many fascinating species can add a wonderful dimension to an island visit. As the late, great Vern Laux was known to say: “While out in the field, keep your eyes to the sky!”

Nantucket’s Audubon Christmas Bird Count draws birders from all over the northeast, and the island often leads New England with the highest species total. ©Terry Pommett

Deer Tick Awareness Deer Tick Awareness Deer ticks are considerably smaller than dog ticks, and are actually arachnids, closely related to spiders. Infected ticks can transmit Lyme Disease, babesiosis or ehrlichiosis, although only a small percentage of tick bites result in Lyme Disease. They are commonly found at high-moisture sites, so be alert when walking in woods, marshy areas, tall grass, and along the edges of fields and lawns. Walk in the middle of trails and away from bordering shrubs. For added protection, wear light-colored long pants tucked into high socks, and a longsleeved shirt. Insect repellants with DEET (diethyltoluamide) will discourage ticks, and those with permethrin will kill them. Use these products with caution.

hours for an attached infected tick to pass bacteria to its human host. Remove an attached tick by grabbing at the skin’s surface with pointed tweezers. Avoid squeezing the tick’s body. Clean the bite site with soap and water, and watch closely for symptoms. If you experience fever, an unexplained rash, painful joints, swollen glands, or other flu-like symptoms, contact your physician immediately. Tick-borne diseases can be effectively treated with antibiotics, provided an early and accurate diagnosis is made. For additional information, call Nantucket Cottage Hospital at 508-825-8100 or the Nantucket Health Department at 508-228-7226.

After visiting a “tick friendly” zone, check yourself thoroughly, especially behind the knees and thighs, back, armpits, groin and hairline. Typically, it takes between 24-48

CONSERVING NANTUCKET Please use the trash receptacles located throughout town and at island beaches.

DAFFODIL FESTIVAL CHRISTMAS STROLL

CHAMBER SPONSORED EVENTS

© George Donnelly

Production of the Chamber’s signature annual events—Daffodil Festival and Christmas Stroll—involves a slew of tireless volunteers, meticulous planning, and a silent prayer to the weather gods to bless the island with clear skies and moderate temperatures on the crucial weekends in April and December. In January, applications are submitted to the NPD for street blocking and written permission is requested from the State to hold a vehicular parade on Milestone Road (Nantucket’s only state highway). Entry forms are mailed to past Antique Car Parade participants, and discussions ensue regarding the design theme for automobile dash plaques, commemorative pins and festival merchandise. What began in 1974 as a simple floral show sponsored by the American Daffodil Society has evolved into a multifaceted extravaganza chock full of events for all age groups. Volunteers are solicited to judge “Daffy” window displays, and details surrounding the Children’s and Dog Parades and Daffy Hat Pageant are considered and discussed. Remarkably, plans for Christmas Stroll Weekend begin in August when the order is placed for 100+ balsam trees that will grace Main Street and the surrounding streets during Nantucket Noel. Stroll pins are designed and ordered, along with other popular festival merchandise. In-town entertainment and activities are also discussed and orchestrated by the Chamber’s seasoned and ever-vigilant Events Committee. Trees arrive on island in late November, and a crew

from the Department of Public Works begins the yeoman’s job of installing them and stringing lights on each and every one. On the day after Thanksgiving, our homage to the holidays ensues with the traditional Tree Lighting and Community Caroling Ceremony (this past year marked the debut of significantly brighter LED lights, to the surprise and delight of locals and visitors alike), followed by Stroll Weekend, Home for the Holidays and the wildly popular Holiday Red Ticket Drawing on Christmas Eve. Nantucket New Years – featuring a lavish themed ball at the Nantucket Hotel and a variety of events island-wide— brings our calendar year to a close. After a brief respite, the wheels are once again set in motion for the following year!

Chamber Sponsored Events 45th Daffodil Festival Weekend April 26-28, 2019 From early April to mid-May, over three million daffodils of every hue, shape and size burst forth across the island, adorning roadsides, gardens, window boxes, shops and more. Now in its 45th year, the Chamber-sponsored Daffodil Festival is a rollicking celebration of spring’s arrival, featuring an Antique Car Parade & Tailgate Picnic, as well as Daffy Hat, Dog and Children’s Parades. Islanders and visitors alike rejoice in the advent of the sun’s warm rays and proliferation of our cheery “signature” bulb. Don your daffiest “chapeau,” adorn your pampered pet in Daffy-themed garb, bedeck your vintage Packard in brilliant buttery yellow, and join us in paying homage to this most festive festival flower. The Antique Car Parade (the Festival’s central event) showcases over 100 handsomely decorated vintage automobiles and motorcycles. Staging begins on Main Street at 9:30 AM (take a “selfie” with your favorites and vote for Most Authentic, Best Decorated, People’s Choice & Best in Show) and at noon, the venerable vehicles wind through Town and perambulate out to the charming village of ‘Sconset for the Taligate Picnic. Pack a brimming basket of sustenance, bask in the sun and enjoy an al fresco lunch. You’ll want to survey the unique and elaborate repasts of Car Parade participants

who compete for awards with their creatively themed picnics. In the Downtown area, the Children’s Beach venue showcases an original performance of “Nanpuppets” to entertain kids of all ages. For bibliophiles, the Atheneum holds its bi-annual used book sale, and Mitchell’s Book Corner features signings by acclaimed authors. Activities abound throughout the island, with diverse walking tours, craft brew and wine tastings, theater productions and concerts to round out the weekend festivities. The Nantucket Garden Club’s acclaimed Daffodil Show always attracts a crowd, with free shuttle bus service to Bartlett’s Ocean View Farm from the Greenhound Building on Washington Street. There’s even a Daffodil 5K Race! And don’t forget to stop by the Chamber office at 0 Main Street to pick up our Official Daffodil Calendar of Events and peruse our limited edition Daffy merchandise. It’s “Flower Power to the Max” as Nantucket pays homage to the beauteous and brilliant daffodil— in various and sundry ways—while bidding adieu to winter and celebrating the arrival of spring!

Fall on Nantucket September – November 2019 Nantucket’s natural beauty is at its height during autumn, showcased by crimson moors, dramatic surf and breathtaking sunsets. The light is exceptional, with artists often remarking about its rarefied quality. You’ll see them out and about with their easels, brushes and cameras attempting to capture it—suspended in time—on canvases and in photographs. Fall is the ideal time to reflect and rejuvenate as you meander along solitary beaches and discover little-known lanes, scanning the unbounded skies for oft-seen rare birds, browse the shelves of the Atheneum—or our wonderful local bookshops—for the perfect off-season “read.” Many restaurants and shops remain open during these glorified days, and the weather is typically brisk and sunny— perfect for plein air excursions, biking along our 32+ miles of designated paths, hiking through the moors, or merely “watching the pass” on a sunny Main Street bench.

Windswept Bog off of the Milestone Road to view harvesting of the brilliant red berries, learn about the history of cranberry farming on Nantucket, watch sheep shearing and herding demonstrations, and enjoy a bit of lunch under the tents, with the backdrop of spectacular scenery and live music. Our current Cranberry Festival evokes the annual Sheep Shearing Festivals held on island in the 19th century—a popular pastime in which the local community gathered in summer to celebrate the shearing of the sheep, replete with food vendors, picnicking, music, fun and frolic. Far from the frenzied crowds of summer, these resplendent days encourage reflection and rejuvenation against an ethereal backdrop of land and sky. We invite you to bask in the multifaceted glories of autumn on the Grey Lady.

Myriad activities dot the calendar from September through November, including gallery openings, birdwatching expeditions, nature, historic and ghost walks, whale watching and sunset cruises and more. During the last week of September, Fall Restaurant Week has grown in popularity. It’s a “foodie’s” delight, featuring renowned local establishments offering three-course prix fixe menus of imaginative, eclectic cuisine. The much-anticipated Cranberry Festival (October 12) is the quintessential familyfriendly outing, attracting one and all to the nantucketchamber.org • 28


Nantucket Noel

November 29, 2019 – January 1, 2020

Featuring Christmas Stroll Weekend December 6-8, 2019

© Emily Millington

Our iconic cobblestoned Main Street lined with glittering fir trees, strolling Victorian carolers, a European-style Christmas market, storefronts and homes festively arrayed for the season, Santa holding court beside a glowing hearth as eager children await their visit….experience all this and more as a yuletide worthy of Dickens is brought to life at our 46th Annual Christmas Stroll. Nantucket Noel begins on Thanksgiving Weekend with the Christmas Tree Lighting and Caroling Ceremony on November 29. Locals and visitors alike gather on Main Street—named one of the most beautiful in America—to join our illustrious Town Crier as he leads the “countdown.” At the stroke of ‘1’, 100 balsam trees magically come alive in a blaze of light. Jubilant caroling –led by our own high school a capella chorus, The Accidentals & Naturals—fills the crisp air, setting the mood for a quintessential holiday experience. Our world-renowned Christmas Stroll follows on December 6-8, transforming the island into a glittering panorama of sight and sound. Affectionately dubbed “Stroll,” this is a weekend not to be missed! The guest of honor—Santa Claus himself—arrives via his own nautical “sleigh” accompanied by members of the Coast Guard. Docking at Straight Wharf, he boards a vintage firetruck and commences a jubilant parade up Main Street to the delight of throngs of children young and old. “The Jolly Man in Red” proceeds to the Jared Coffin House for a “fireside chat” with eager youngsters from 1-2:45 PM. At the head of Main Street, the Magical Talking 29 • 2019 Official Guide to Nantucket

Tree beckons one and all to its gaily festooned branches for some whimsical conversation. Take a moment to admire the uniquely decorated windows and doorways of merchants who vie for coveted ribbons deeming their efforts “Most Creative” or “Most Traditional.” The bustling Christmas Marketplace at the foot of Main Street features a variety of stands serving hot beverages, a myriad of foods, crafts and wares….the perfect way to grab some sustenance as you jump-start your holiday shopping. Nantucket New Years brings our month-long Noel event to a close with an array of fun and festive activities island-wide. From nature walks, ice skating at our state-of-the-art rink, the NHA’s Festival of Trees exhibit—and more—it’s the perfect, family-friendly way to celebrate the waning year on our diminutive island-at-sea. A lavish New Year’s Eve themed ball held at the Nantucket Hotel—last year’s Gala Nautical Dinner and Dance Party featured an “anchor drop” at the stroke of midnight—is the perfect way to bid adieu to the old year and welcome in the new.


ACCOMMODATIONS

Accommodations

As first-time visitors step off the ferry and onto Straight Wharf, they are greeted by a magical place suspended in time. Indeed, Nantucket boasts over 800 homes dating to the pre-Civil War era. The number of whaling merchants’ homes resurrected as bed-and-breakfast inns on Nantucket is extraordinary and reflective of longstanding efforts to meticulously preserve the island’s rich architectural heritage. Lodging in an 18th-century house abundant in living history truly contributes to the “authentic” experience of visitors to our storied island. Wheeling their luggage along the cobblestone streets—maps in hand—they ultimately arrive at their destination; their delight is apparent as they cast sight upon a charming accommodation, rather like an image from a Victorian picture book. And thus they begin an immersion in the Nantucket experience: a former whaling captain’s residence to call home while exploring diverse historic sites, strolling along wharves and little-known byways, all the while gleaning little-known facts about this remote outpost at sea. In 1910, a young Ernest Hemingway and his mother Grace arrived on island and ventured to 45 Pearl Street (now 17 India Street) to the beautifully appointed guesthouse of Miss Annie Ayers, a place of congenial hospitality and low 6-foot ceilings. Ernest proceeded to catch a Spanish mackerel (a foreshadowing of his expertise as an angler) which Miss Ayers cooked and served to her guests at dinner; he also delighted in beachcombing for “specimens.” The house still stands, now home to the Hospital Thrift Shop. North Water Street was once dubbed “Guest House Row,” with the Brass Lantern, Carlisle House, Periwinkle Inn, and others continuing the age-old tradition of providing tourist accommodations. At the head of Broad Street, the venerable Jared Coffin House hotel—built by a successful whaling merchant in 1845—continues to stand sentinel with its stately brick exterior. Other historic bed-and-breakfasts in the Downtown include Anchor Inn, Centerboard Inn, Cliff Lodge, Hawthorn House, Roberts House, Sherburne Inn and Union Street Inn, all built in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Nantucket Lodging Association Reservations: Early advance reservations will ensure confirmed accommodations, especially in the summer season. Many properties have strict reservation cancellation policies. Please review the policy before booking your room. Even on the busiest weekends, spontaneous travelers may be able to book a last minute Nantucket getaway. There is no need to bring a car to the island for short-term stays. Most lodging establishments are within easy walking distance of beaches, restaurants, museums, churches, galleries and shops; some further out of town provide a shuttle service for their guests. In addition, the year-round Nantucket Regional Transit Authority has numerous shuttle buses to take you to the more remote areas of the Island, beaches and shopping. Storm Policy: If the ferries operate, we expect guests to arrive as planned whether or not they planned to arrive by ferry or plane. Once ferry service resumes, guests are expected to arrive for the balance of their reservation. Travel delays, missed connections from airports, medical or any other travel issues will not merit credits or refunds. These potential unforeseen problems are best addressed with travel insurance which we highly recommend. Always ascertain cancellation and refund policies when making room reservations. Minimum Stay: Many establishments have minimum stay requirements, particularly for weekends and in peak season. However, some do accept one-night reservations in advance, and it is often possible to obtain lodging on short notice. The Nantucket Visitor Services and Information Bureau at 25 Federal Street, (508) 228-0925, maintains a listing of daily availability on their website: www.visitnantucketisland.org Deposits and Refunds: Because of Nantucket’s unique location, most visitors make precise travel plans and confirm their lodging in advance. If a

nantucketlodging.org

confirmed reservation is canceled, it may not be possible to re-book the room. Therefore, our lodging members subscribe to a strict and businesslike deposit and cancellation policy similar to the following: for three nights or less, full pre-payment may be required at the time of booking. For longer stays, a 50% deposit may be required at the time of booking, with balance due on arrival. Deposits (less 10% service fee) will usually be refunded if notice of cancellation is received at least 15 days before expected arrival. If a cancellation is received less than 15 days prior to arrival, deposits (less 10% service fee) may be refunded if the room is re-booked for the entire canceled period. NLA Group Reservation Policy: Nantucket lodging establishments often receive requests for group reservations such as weddings, reunions, anniversary celebrations, and groups traveling together. For group reservations, Nantucket’s lodging establishments generally subscribe to a common practice of advance group reservations being guaranteed and prepaid. In order to provide assurance to both the lodging facilities and the parties that book large numbers of rooms, the following policies apply: Full payment is required with 30-day notice to cancel, with a 10% cancellation fee. In the event that there is a shortening or cancellation of a reservation less than 30 days from the arrival date, the advance payment may be non-refundable. Please verify the specific policies at your choice of establishment for those that may pertain to your group reservation. It is common for group reservations to be subject to a service charge. Many properties have a stricter policy and it is recommended that you review the policy before initiating your booking.

Due to Nantucket’s fragile ecology, camping is prohibited.

Activities

Twelve well-designated bicycle paths (32 scenic miles) ranging from .3 to 9 miles in length crisscross the island, making this “green” form of transportation an ideal way for all ages to explore our diminutive spit of sand and actively contribute to limiting vehicle traffic during the busy summer months. Public tennis and golf courses await ardent professionals and novices alike. Disc golf is a fun and unique family activity, both easy to learn and free to play. A haven for naturalists, Nantucket boasts a bevy of rare flora and fauna, as well as a host of unique animal species. Maria Mitchell Association offers nature and wildflower walks and birding field trips during the warmer months, as well as a Discovery Program introducing youngsters to the delights and wonders of the natural world. Murray Camp, Nantucket Community School and Nantucket Island School of Design & the Arts (NISDA) also offer diverse camp experiences for all age groups. Bus, van and walking tours provide a fantastic insight into the island’s rich and varied history, or a self-guided walking tour of Nantucket’s preserved architectural gems allows you to meander at your own pace. (Pick up a Nantucket Historic Walking Tour pamphlet at the Chamber of Commerce or Visitor Services office.) Tours devoted to birding, biking, brewery, clamming, photography and sightseeing are also available. You won’t want to miss climbing the 94 steps to the top of the Congregational Church for a spectacular view—on a clear day—of the harbor and beyond. In the following pages, you’ll find a wealth of diverse activities to suit all age groups and interests, from Aquariums to Yoga and everything in between.

ACTIVITIES

With over 80 miles of pristine beaches, Nantucket is a “nirvana” for beachgoers. From Children’s Beach, Jetties and Dionis on the North Shore to Surfside, Miacomet, Cisco and Madaket on the South Shore, and ‘Sconset on the Eastern Shore, you’ll find the perfect venue tailored to small children, families, surfers, and experienced swimmers. Beachcombers will be delighted to discover a variety of shells, unique stones, beach glass and “mermaid’s purses.” Windsurfing, kayaking and sailing lessons are available at Jetties Beach, and surfing lessons are offered at Cisco Beach. Nautical pursuits are plentiful and varied, with fishing and sailing charters and boat rentals rounding out the mix. In season, the “Wave” bus conveniently shuttles passengers to both Jetties and Surfside beaches.


Fishing & Shellfish Regulations

ACTIVITIES

The Nantucket Police Department at 4 Fairgrounds Road is responsible for issuing all commercial and non-commercial permits for shellfishing. The resident/property owner (proof required) permit is $35 and the non-resident permit is $125. Both are for individuals over the age of 14. Free for retired scallopers and residents over 60. For information regarding shellfishing, please call the Natural Resources Department at 508-228-7230. For your convenience, the Chamber of Commerce website www.nantucketchamber.org offers a link to the MA Division of Marine Fisheries site which contains helpful information about regulations and permits for both commercial and recreational fishing.

Traveling Light:

The Preservation of ‘Sconset’s Iconic Sentinel By June R. Meyers

“And therefore never send to know for whom the Bluff tolls.” Twenty-one thousand years ago, at the end of the last Ice Age, an aggregate of soil, rocks and pebbles deposited by a glacial moraine ultimately formed the Island of Nantucket. Erosion, hastened by relentless nor’easters and high-velocity winds, is inevitable here, considering the island’s sedimentary makeup. (A sobering fact: the powerful “No Name Storm” of 1990 carved 17 feet off of Sankaty Head in a matter of days.) Nowhere has its toll been more profound than ‘Sconset Bluff where the Sankaty Head Lighthouse was erected in February 1850. (Sankaty is the Wampanoag word for “highland.”) Constructed of 450 tons of brick and granite transported from the mainland aboard schooners, the silent 70-foot sentinel was situated a safe 280 feet from the bluff’s edge. Its 3,500+ pound Fresnel lens— operating at 720,000 candle power—is visible at a distance of 25 miles, making it the brightest of New England’s lighthouse beacons. Standing guard 100 feet above the roiling ocean, Sankaty Head Light is ever-vigilant, alerting mariners to the constantly shifting shoals and sandbars of the treacherous waters once dubbed the “Graveyard of the Atlantic.” How ironic then that a stalwart guardian of this precarious swath of sea for over two centuries could ultimately succumb to the very forces of nature it protected against. In 2007, a century and a half after its installation, virulent erosion had decimated the benevolent beacon’s nonthreatening location 280 feet from bluff’s edge to an alarming 76 feet! Clearly, steps needed to be taken to save the familiar white colossus with its brilliant red stripe from plummeting headlong into the ocean. The

‘Sconset Trust , which had taken ownership of the Lighthouse (listed on the National Registry of Historic Places) from the NHA, sprang to action. International Chimney Corp., in tandem with Expert House Movers of Maryland (the team had successfully moved 5 other lighthouses) was charged with the task. First, the perimeter of the 500-ton structure was excavated to expose its foundation walls. A diamond-tipped hydraulic chainsaw cut through nearly 4 feet of brick at its base to prepare for insertion of steel-lifting beams to form the support frame. On September 18, 2007, Sankaty got its initial “lift.” On September 26, the Lighthouse was “unplugged” by National Grid for a total of 1,420 hours and 27 minutes. The structure was literally “pushed” to its new location by a system of hydraulic pistons and lift jacks connected to steel Hilman rollers, the skids of which were assiduously greased with—of all things—Ivory Soap to insure smooth running. At 11:02 AM on Tuesday, October 9, 2007, Sankaty Head Lighthouse was safely ensconced in its new location near the 5th hole of the Sankaty Head Golf Course. In a remarkable tour de force, it had been lifted and moved 405 feet in a mere 11 days. (“Keeping the Light” by Robert Felch and Rob Benchley provides fascinating documentation of this epic move, replete with photos both current and historic.) And so the story has a happy ending, for now. Yet it is sobering to think that all of Nantucket will continue to erode until it disappears into the sea—a few hundred to 1,000 years hence— depending on the prognosticator. The timeworn adage applies: “You can’t fight Mother Nature.”

Arts & Culture

Nantucket continues its centuries-long reign as a thriving artists colony and a haven for visual arts, theater, lectures and musical offerings throughout the year. A variety of artist-in-residence programs island wide welcome emerging and professional artists and educators in all fields, including the studio arts in photography, painting, ceramics, textiles, writing, musical performance and alternative projects. Inspiration drawn from Nantucket’s physical and spiritual beauty is expressed in a stunning variety of media, and the ethereal island light—particularly in autumn—continues to be masterfully captured in photographs and paintings. On almost every evening in the summer and at various times throughout the year, theater productions are presented by the Theatre Workshop of Nantucket, Children’s Theatre, Dreamland Theater, White Heron Theatre Company, as well as traveling companies. Art galleries abound. Many are located in the Downtown and feature exhibits and openings attracting locals and visitors alike. A variety of festivals devoted to the arts, books, comedy, film and wine take place in summer and fall, showcasing up-and-coming writers and comedians, as well as screenwriters.

Nantucket’s beauty is world-renowned, showcased by its pristine beaches, charming byways and vast acres of conservation land. The Grey Lady also boasts a rich cultural heritage, and is home to over 800 meticulously preserved pre-Civil War era homes and buildings. These classic, stately mansions and structures—representing a mix of architectural styles—are a delight to view as you stroll about this small ‘elbow of sand’ so aptly described by Herman Melville. After the discovery of petroleum sounded a death knell for its halcyon whaling era, Nantucket gradually evolved into a popular summer resort attracting literary and fine artists such as John Steinbeck, Eastman Johnson, Tony Sarg and Elizabeth Rebecca Coffin. The island continues to provide inspiration for artists, from the historic fabric of Downtown to the nostalgic village of ‘Sconset, evoking their creativity in all forms of media from oil painting to photography. Nantucket’s museums are repositories of centuries of artifacts, decorative and functional art, craftwork, original documents, whaling journals and more. The eleven unique galleries and exhibit

spaces of the Nantucket Historical Association’s spectacular Whaling Museum feature 20,000 artifacts and art relevant to island life. The NHA’s nearly two dozen historic sites, research libraries and guided walking tours provide even greater depth into island history and offer rich insights into Nantucket’s evolution from the whaling capital of the world to a premiere vacation resort. The Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum houses 5,000 artifacts chronicling lifesaving efforts on the part of mariners navigating the treacherous waters of the Atlantic. vessels known as “lightships” sailed near known shifting shoals to provide a visual warning of imminent danger. Sailors aboard these ships passed their time weaving sturdy and intricate oak baskets prized by collectors. The Lightship Basket Museum displays an extensive collection and continues to offer weaving classes in this unique art form.

On York Street, the African Meeting House and adjacent Florence Higginbotham House (circa 1820), as well as the 9-stop Black Heritage Trail—preserve the rich and varied history of the island’s Black population with cultural programs and interpretive exhibits. The island is a true mecca for artists. A state-of-the-art performance venue offering film, art, music, theater and live performances, the Nantucket Dreamland Theater enhances the vibrancy of island life with its diverse offerings. The Artists’ Association showcases year-round educational programs and exhibitions in addition to housing a vast permanent collection. Nantucket Island School of Design & the Arts (NISDA) welcomes emerging and professional artists in a variety of art forms and media. In addition, the island is home to three professional theater companies: Children’s Theater of Nantucket, White Heron Theatre and Theatre Workshop of Nantucket.

Nantucket Culinary Center hosts culinary classes for all ages, as well as cooking demonstrations and events throughout the year. The island’s Cultural District is a thriving sector of the Downtown showcasing historic buildings dedicated to art, history and culture in its 28 walkable blocks.

or lose yourself in a best-selling novel. An impromptu takeout picnic with the vast Atlantic as a spectacular backdrop insures an enduring memory. The island’s smooth terrain is coveted by bikers and runners alike. With 32+ miles of designated paths, biking on Nantucket is pure bliss for cyclists. Explore the quaint village of ‘Sconset, and pedal out to Madaket at dusk to experience a breathtaking sunset. Fishing, sailing, tennis, kayaking, birding, disc golf and more are also popular outdoor pursuits. There’s even a state-of-the-art skateboard park and (indoor) ice rink!

Booking a leisurely passage on 2 ¼-hour traditional ferry (minus the added expense of your vehicle) is an ideal way to shed the stress of mainland “America.” Many of the island’s historic sites, restaurants and accommodations lie in the heart of Town. Stroll the charming streets and byways, and marvel at the remarkable architectural diversity, from early lean-to houses, to Federal and Greek Revival mansions. Don’t miss climbing to the top of the Congregational Church tower on a clear day for a stellar view of Nantucket Harbor!

Discounted rates for accommodations are available in the shoulder and off-seasons. If you’re bringing a group, consider renting a house or cottage. The island’s “Star of the Sea” hostel is a hidden gem. Built as a lifesaving station in 1873, this historic property sits directly across from Surfside beach, offering both dorm-style and private lodging at attractive prices.

An impressive number of preserved historic sites, with nominal—or non-existent—fees allow you to peer into Nantucket’s storied past. Pick up a self-guided Historic Walking Tour pamphlet from the Chamber office or take one of the many guided walking our van tours featuring historic commentary. A longtime haven for the arts, the island hosts gallery openings, exhibitions, lectures, concerts and theater throughout the year. Access is free to the island’s 10 pristine beaches, with surf suitable for children and hardcore surfers alike. Daydream, nap,

traffic lights and neon signs—is accessible to one and all. Over 80 miles of pristine beaches, three iconic lighthouses, acres of conservation land, stately gray-shingled homes, lovingly maintained historic properties, and a quaint cobblestone Main Street afford a less complicated way of life.


Food & Dining The abundance of delectable food on Nantucket is not limited to the bluefish and striped bass swimming just offshore, or to the coveted, world-famous Nantucket Bay Scallops that thrive in our pristine waters. A remarkable variety of fresh vegetables are grown by island farmers as well as backyard gardeners. Bartlett’s Farm’s vintage vegetable truck parked daily on Main Street throughout the summer is an iconic visual reminder of the Grey Lady’s amazing bounty. Of the few fruits native to North America, cranberries, blueberries and Concord grapes can be found on Nantucket. While the cranberries are cultivated and remain a prized export, blueberries and grapes continue to grow wild in many areas of the island, as do beach plums and rose hips; both make excellent jellies. Nantucket is renowned for its many stellar restaurants. Diverse and imaginative cuisine abounds, with island chefs creating memorable meals from the abundance of fresh native seafood, fruit and vegetables. A number of popular culinary events attract both locals and visitors alike throughout the year. The Nantucket Wine & Food Festival held in May has evolved into one of the nation’s most celebrated events, attracting oenophiles, winemakers, chefs and patrons from around the world. Held in both spring and fall, Nantucket Restaurant Week provides diners with the opportunity to revel in three-course prix fixe meals offered at a fraction of their typical cost. Sustainable Nantucket’s NantucketGrown™ Food Festival debuted in 2016, and this unique, food-focused event—in collaboration with farmers, chefs, fishermen, brewers, beekeepers and artisanal food producers—features a series of “fun, food, and educational” happenings tailored to all age groups, highlighted by a tres-popular four-course NantucketGrown™dinner. In autumn, a seasonal Farmers’ & Artisans’ market in the Downtown showcases the bounty of local growers and artists. From bakeries to a thriving winery, our diminutive island rivals major cities in the scope of food-related shops, restaurants and markets available in its 47.8 square miles. From a sunset clambake on the beach to an unforgettable repast in a four-star restaurant, we’ve truly got it all!

Find the Perfect Restaurant on Nantucket Nantucket island has over 85 restaurants. They range from a quick take out cup of coffee and a croissant, a slice of pizza, a sub roll or a delicious lobster roll to a memorable sit-down dining experience overlooking the water. In season, many places require advance reservations (either by phone or lining up at a certain time of day to reserve for that night only). Others are known for the lines outside the door on a sunny day.

MERCHANTS A veritable “nirvana” for shopping enthusiasts, Nantucket is home to an impressive array of shops and boutiques to satisfy the most eclectic tastes, from the traditional to the whimsical. Many stores are small and independently owned, insuring that you’ll receive a rare level of personal attention while browsing for the perfect souvenir, or a fabulous gift for that special someone back home. During the island’s centenary reign as whaling capital of the world, our wharves bustled with activity and the majority of local businesses catered to the building and outfitting of ships— sperm-oil refineries, sailmakers, and cooperages—while a preponderance of shops on Centre Street were maintained by the wives of whalers, with the thoroughfare aptly dubbed “Petticoat Row.” (Many of these shops continue to be owned and operated by women.) Much manufacturing on Nantucket continues in the “made by hand” tradition, and maritime crafts remain a hallmark of the island’s mercantile scene. Nantucket’s iconic lightship baskets continue to be lovingly handcrafted by islanders, as is the scrimshaw that carries on the centuries-old tradition brought back to the island by whalers who circumnavigated the world. Nantucket is also renowned for its artists and artisans, including painters,

weavers, potters, jewelers and furniture makers, all of whom lovingly create one-of-a-kind heirlooms and treasures. R.H. Macy (of Macy’s department store fame) was a native Nantucketer and shopkeeper, and the innovative ideas he brought to the mainland were forged during his early on-island business years. (Macy’s distinctive red star logo was actually his tattoo.) Antiques shops abound, featuring nautical pieces such as sailor’s trunks, scrimshaw, maps, paintings and lightship baskets paying homage to Nantucket’s rich maritime history. You’ll marvel at the myriad opportunities to window shop—or to purchase—a unique piece of history on this island with a past that is ever-present. Antiques Depot continues its annual tradition of sponsoring an “Antique Short Story Contest” for all ages. Visit their website nantucketantiquesdepot.com for further details. Peruse the following pages to explore the diversity of businesses serving the island yearround. In addition to clothing and accessories, you’ll find firewood, fishing gear, garden centers, janitorial supplies, mail order products, power equipment, thrift shops, and more!

REAL ESTATE

©George Donnelly

Real Estate A world-renowned resort destination, Nantucket offers an impressive selection of home and cottage rentals and sales to suit every requirement. Whether you’re seeking a beachside enclave with all the amenities for a family vacation, a secluded cottage for a memorable romantic getaway, or wish to fulfill a lifetime dream of owning an historic in-town home, the knowledgeable agents at any of the island’s real estate offices will gladly assist you in locating the perfect property. Pore over the many options and categories in the section that follows to streamline your search. Thanks to the foresight of the Nantucket Islands Land Bank, as well as the Nantucket Land Council and the Nantucket Conservation Foundation, much of the island’s 47.8 square miles is largely preserved in its pristine state. Vast tracts of untouched conservation land contribute to the singular charm of the Grey Lady. The finite percentage of buildable acreage that remains is a significant “selling point” to those who seek to own property here.

128 • 2018 Official Guide to Nantucket

From an architectural standpoint, most houses continue to be framed with cedar shingles in keeping with Nantucket’s designation as an historic district; indeed, the traditional enhancements of roof walks and quarterboards remain an integral part of the island’s identity. Roof walks were originally built for fire prevention, with buckets of sand stationed nearby to pour down the chimney in the event of a fire. However, the iconic image of a lonely woman standing atop what some romantically dubbed a “widow’s walk,” forlornly scanning the horizon for her husband’s returning whaleship, has lent a more dramatic twist to the structure’s rather mundane origins. Quarterboards, some sporting fanciful names, are house identifiers that harken to Nantucket’s maritime past. Ships were frequently wrecked on the dangerous shoals surrounding the island and the quarterboard bearing the ship’s name would often be salvaged by frugal Nantucketers and reattached to a house or barn. This tradition continues, with houses across the island sporting newly-made quarterboards hand-hewn by local artisans. Many original examples still exist, most notably in the village of ‘Sconset, where cottages named “Shanunga” and “Wanackmamack” proudly display their weathered historic markers.

Island Recycling: Join the Movement Nantucket has introduced a fresh approach to reducing the impact of waste on our island home. Welcome to beautiful Nantucket and thank you for doing your part to keep it pristine for future generations. Just like people in cities and towns all over the nation, the seasonal and year-round residents of Nantucket are doing a better job of recycling and sorting waste. We invite our guests to join us in reducing the impact of plastics and other non-recyclables and non-compostables into our waste stream. This year on Nantucket, the island’s recycling and composting initiatives took a step forward with the addition of Graeme Durovich to the position of Recycling and Solid Waste Coordinator at the Town’s Department of Public Works. “I hope to assist Nantucket in continuing along its path of minimizing waste and more effectively and efficiently managing its waste streams. The goal is for all of us to continue enjoying living on this beautiful island, without diminishing that same experience for others.” Nantucket’s Public Works and Health Departments and their partners at Waste Options Nantucket are working together to continually assess and improve their solid waste and recycling operations. On Nantucket, recyclable (R) waste is collected, sorted, baled, and shipped off-island to commodity markets for revenue. This includes shipping boxes, plastic, and tin/aluminum. Glass is crushed and then reused onsite for haul road maintenance. Compostable (C) waste is collected and sent through a large industrial composter. This process turns our food scraps and other compostable waste into nutrient rich soil. Any non-compostable materials that are inadvertently tossed into the compostable stream, contaminate it and must be screened off and added to Nantucket’s landfill. If our compostable stream were 100% clean and free of non-compostable waste, nothing would be added to the landfill on Nantucket. The remaining items in our waste stream that are neither recyclable nor compostable go in NonRecyclable/Non-Compostable (NR/NC) Waste. This includes plastic bags, shrink wrap, and other film plastics; protein bar and candy wrappers; chip 134 • 2019 Official Guide to Nantucket

bags; straws and plastic cutlery; cleaning wipes; and all items made from a mix of materials including milk cartons, diapers, and Keurig cups. Durovich and the team at the Department of Public Works and Public Health remind you that while properly sorting and disposing of our waste is one of the best ways to manage the waste that we create, we must also work to reduce the amount of waste we generate. Durovich hopes that Nantucket residents, visitors, and businesses will resist the unsustainable ease of single-use items and the generation of unnecessary waste that is simply sent ‘away,’ and instead turn to more sustainable options. Here are some practical things islanders and visitors can do to actively support recycling and composting: • Say no to plastic straws. Instead use glass, metal, or paper straws; • Use your own water bottles – Nantucket has refilling stations all over the island; • Be certain to sort waste into Recyclable (R), Compostables (C) and Non-Recyclable/Non-Compostables (NR/NC); • Seek out and use the appropriate waste receptacles around Nantucket; •

Bring your own reusable bags when shopping;

• Skip the packaging, or request recyclable or compostable packaging for purchases; • Support businesses who demonstrate best practices in the use of reusable glasses and cutlery; • Think before you buy. Ask yourself, do I really need it? With your help, Nantucket can become an island community leading the way in how it manages its waste streams. Join the movement to efficiently recycle and compost– it is a worthy goal for today and for the future. Join our efforts to keep Nantucket clean, and consider volunteering your time with the Clean Team. They meet downtown at the Handlebar Cafe every Saturday at 8am (rain or shine). For more information, please email Bill Connell at wconnell@connellandersen.com.  If you have questions about Nantucket’s recycling efforts, please visit the Town of Nantucket’s website: www.nantucket-ma.gov/SolidWaste.

Services & Transportation

Nantucket’s Police and Fire Departments, Department of Public Works, Coast Guard and Cottage Hospital—among others—are dedicated to insuring your safety and security, while banks, beauty salons, cleaners, home repair and maintenance, landscapers, and a host of other professional services provide the comforts and conveniences of the mainland. For such a small island, the sheer diversity and scope are extensive. Peruse the following pages—from Acupuncture to Water Filtration—for comprehensive listings of the myriad services and transportation options to suit every imaginable need. Most impressive are the numerous associations which contribute to the ongoing vitality of our island and represent the dedicated, concerted efforts of groups to protect Nantucket Sound, educate about Autism, build homes and provide services for the less privileged, and bring injured soldiers and their families to the island for respite and relaxation, acknowledging their patriotism and heroism in the face of war. Pride in service—and a passionate dedication to the community—are watchwords on Nantucket, whether those who serve are natives or “washashores.” Whatever the cause—services for those less fortunate and the disabled, the Arts, our public and private schools—all are committed to offering their time and talents to energize the community and provide resources for those in need. It is truly awe-inspiring that these organizations are all “watchkeepers”—in one way or another—of the island’s unique character, with an eye toward maintaining its heritage, historic integrity and unique beauty.

NANTUCKET COTTAGE HOSPITAL ENTERS A NEW ERA Bill DeSousa-Mauk

February 20, 2019 marked a milestone in the island’s history with the opening of Nantucket’s new Cottage Hospital; the106,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility cost nearly $90 million, raised solely from private donations. An unprecedented $120 million capital campaign—the largest in island history—made its planning and execution a reality. The entire campus was built debt-free—utilizing no taxpayer dollars—with the balance of funds slated for completion of its campus. Construction of new staff housing units will help to address Nantucket’s ongoing affordable housing crisis. Among the features of this remarkable facility are 14 inpatient beds, 12 emergency exam rooms, five infusion bays, a trauma room, 29 clinical exam rooms for primary physicians and specialists, expanded labor and delivery services, and a new heliport. Two operating rooms allow for flexible scheduling of procedures. The original hospital, built in 1957 when the number of year-round residents totaled one-third of the current population, stands adjacent. It will be demolished in due course to create room for parking. The new hospital is certified as a LEED Gold v4 building, so designated for its energy use and air quality. Since 1998, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) has become the world’s premier benchmark for design, construction and operation of high-performance “green” buildings. In light of Nantucket’s vulnerable location 30 miles at sea, the new Hospital was built to withstand Category 5 hurricane winds in excess of 185 miles per hour. In addition to other resilient design features, all mechanical systems were installed on the roof as opposed to the basement level. “Our new Hospital is the incredible result of a small island community coming together to do something big,” said Margot Hartmann, MD, PhD, Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s president and CEO. “This dynamic new facil168 • 2019 Official Guide to Nantucket


ity will give our patients the best of both worlds, allowing us to leverage the expertise and resources of our trusted affiliate, Massachusetts General Hospital, paired with the comfort, tradition and familiarity of Nantucket’s beloved community hospital.” NCH’s roster of employees is currently at 250, a number which is likely to increase as the facility becomes fully funcPhoto Courtesy of Nantucket Cottage Hospital tional. On an annual basis, the Hospital generally records between 60-70,000 emergency room, inpatient and outpatient visits, and 150 births. “We felt that building a true campus with not just a cutting-edge hospital, but on-site housing, would give us flexibility for our staff that we never had in the past,” commented Bruce Percelay, chairman of the hospital’s capital campaign Photo: Courtesy of Nantucket Cottage Hospital

and whose family generously donated the lead $10 million gift for the new facility, with the condition that the campaign be expanded to include staff housing. “We re proud to have been a part of an island-wide effort that will change healthcare delivery on Nantucket for the next generation,” he added.

WEDDINGS & FUNCTIONS

Its singular natural beauty has long made Nantucket a sought-after destination for weddings and vow renewals. With more than 800 meticulously preserved pre-Civil War homes and a charming cobblestoned Main Street, the island’s historic allure is undeniable. Despite its size and remote location, Nantucket is a premiere resort destination providing all the necessary elements to orchestrate your “dream” wedding. To assist in planning, a compact Travel & Lodging brochure— ideal for sending with “Save the Date” mailings—is available from the Chamber of Commerce. Many couples reserve copies of the Official Chamber Guide—our most comprehensive publication—to tuck into their guests’ welcome baskets, as well as local maps and a self-guided walking tour pamphlet. For assistance in navigating the details regarding marriage licensing and related legal requirements, a helpful information packet is available from the Town Clerk’s office.

Historical Association properties—Greater Light, Quaker Meeting House, Hadwen House Garden, and the Nantucket Whaling Museum—are also coveted wedding and reception venues. Many couples choose to incorporate the island’s rich heritage and culture into their wedding: flower girls toting bloom-filled lightship baskets, a bouquet of brilliant blue hydrangeas for the bride, grooms clad in signature “Nantucket Reds”….. all reflect the unparalleled charm of a Nantucket wedding. Nantucket’s seclusion, as well as its pristine natural beauty and vibrant living history, also make it an ideal venue for successful meetings and corporate retreats. Many diverse groups travel here to experience this unique ambiance which fosters creativity and clarity of thought.

An array of venues—both traditional and non-traditional—provide stunning locales for your special event. For an upscale hotel “vibe”, the White Elephant, Jared Coffin House Nantucket Hotel & Resort and The Wauwinet all insure understated elegance and unforgettable memories. A number of Nantucket

THE GREY LADY: CENTURIES OF CELEBRATING DIVERSITY By Bill DeSousa-Mauk Across the United States, the law proclaiming marriage equality has made it possible for children with same-sex parents not to feel uncomfortable or stigmatized. The social revolution on the mainland gathered speed in earnest during the past ten years. On windswept Nantucket Island, however, liberal views promoting racial and gender equality have been the norm since the Quaker religion was established here in 1708. Their tenet that souls were sexless and people colorless formed the basis for liberal leanings which took years to become entrenched elsewhere. They also believed that the family was by no means a patriarchy—husbands and wives served as equal partners in both child rearing and maintaining the home.

Same-sex partners and spouses receive a warm welcome on Nantucket. In fact, Massachusetts was the first state to legislate marriage equality in 2004. Another nod to Nantucket’s enlightenment lies in the fact that, long before American women realized their own “liberation” in the 20th century, a clutch of 19th century independent island females with whaling and merchant husbands at sea oversaw Nantucket from Centre Street shops (aptly dubbed “Petticoat Row”) as well as front parlors and storefronts throughout town.


Adding strength to the independence of these intrepid souls was the Mariner’s Power of Attorney. Nantucket women were the first in the country to receive the protection from this precursor to today’s Power of Attorney. This document endowed wives, sisters, mothers, daughters— and even friends—of whalemen legal rights to sell property for the duration of their voyages, which could last up to 10 years. Between 1774 and 1847, nearly 200 Nantucket women enjoyed this protection.

supportive and inclusive community of intellectuals, entrepreneurs, artists, craftspeople, fishermen, innkeepers and people from every walk of life—and lifestyle— genuinely embrace newcomers and individuals whose lives are distinctively different from theirs. Island hotels, inns, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, airlines, ferries, shops, and galleries—some gay-owned and operated—graciously welcome same-sex couples and families. The same holds true

The native Wampanoag, African Americans, Azoreans and scores of others who lived on Nantucket centuries ago certainly looked and felt different than the island’s original white settlers. Yet, these “people of color” were not victims of discrimination and were considered fully equal to everyone else. Many of these islanders provided unique talents and skills which were cherished and usually in high demand. In their outpost at sea, Nantucket’s Quakers were true visionaries, sanctioning equality among men and women long before the emancipation of slavery and the “women’s lib” movement. Thus, 21st century Nantucket is a safe and welcoming place to visit, spend a season or live. Its

for local businesses and same-sex couples who live and work on Nantucket. Being gay or simply ‘different’ is not an issue. Considering Nantucket’s worldwide appeal, visitors from all walks of life—and lifestyles—are drawn to the island to immerse themselves in its sophistication, charm, beauty and recreational opportunities. A growing number of businesses specialize in gay travel, same-sex weddings, honeymoons and other aspects of the LGBT lifestyle. In fact, our Chamber of Commerce is highly proactive in marketing to this affluent and desirable market segment. Indeed, Nantucket offers a wealth of cerebral, affluent and enjoyable experiences, including live theater and entertainment, attractions and recreation, with numerous eclectic restaurants appealing nantucketchamber.org • 181
