Nantucket Travel guide
Nantucket : Michelin's recommendations
Lying 28 miles south of Cape Cod, this triangular-shaped island was the world capital of the whaling industry in the early 19C. Merchants and shipowners grew rich from the whale trade, and used their profits to build the magnificent homes that stand today on Main Street near the wharves. With its comfortable old homes, wharfside structures and cobblestone streets along with upscale shopping and dining, Nantucket today reigns as one of the most charming and well-preserved spots on the East Coast.
