New England Adventure – Nantucket Town

Welcome to ACK

On 4th July, we arrived in Nantucket, an island 30 miles south of Cape Cod.

Last time we visited it was for a day trip, and it wasn’t quite long enough, so we returned for five blissful nights.

Big Zip

First stop was a spot of shopping at Ralph Lauren – this always seems to be at the top of the agenda when Ollie’s around!

I just loved browsing the shops, with Murray’s Toggery and In the Pink being my favourites.

Quaintest town around

The first beach we headed to was The Jetties. It wasn’t the best on the island, but it was a short walk from town, which meant we could head to Provisions for lunch.

Island time

In the evening, we donned our red, white and blue, and enjoyed a taste of America with local beers at Nixs Brewpub and brisket at B-ACK Yard BBQ. I even wore a firework inspired dress from Lily Pulitzer’s 4th July window display but forgot to photograph it amongst all the action! I’ll have to save it for another post…

I loved the beer pumps!

After dinner, we headed to the harbour to see the sunset and fireworks display. It was so much fun being part of the celebrations!

Beautiful Nantucket

There’ll be more from me in ACK in my next post!
