Nantucket is an island about 30mi by ferry south from Cape Cod, in the American state of Massachusetts. Start off your visit on the 17th (Sat): visit a coastal fixture at Sankaty Head Lighthouse, then enjoy the sea views from Great Point Light, and then identify plant and animal life at Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge.

Plan my Nantucket trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Phoenix to Nantucket is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry; or do a combination of bus, ferry, and taxi. The time zone difference when traveling from Phoenix to Nantucket is 2 hours. When traveling from Phoenix in October, plan for cooler days in Nantucket, with highs around 64°F, while nights are slightly colder with lows around 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel to Orleans.
