Nantucket is an island about 30mi by ferry south from Cape Cod, in the American state of Massachusetts. Take a break from Nantucket with a short trip to Mytoi in Edgartown, about 2 hours away. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Jetties Beach, visit a coastal fixture at Sankaty Head Lighthouse, make a trip to Brant Point Lighthouse, and get engrossed in the history at Egan Maritime's Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum.

For traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Nantucket travel route planner .

In August, daytime highs in Nantucket are 76°F, while nighttime lows are 63°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
