Nantucket is an island about 30mi by ferry south from Cape Cod, in the American state of Massachusetts. Get some cultural insight at Sankaty Head Lighthouse and Cisco Brewers. Popular historic sites such as Great Point Light and Brant Point Lighthouse are in your itinerary. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Jetties Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Surfside Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, and take an in-depth tour of Egan Maritime's Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport, Portsmouth International at Pease Airport and Manchester Airport. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in August, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
