The ocean shore is a mile from Tristam's Landing. A nice, sandy road takes you there -- a nice walk! Or you can go another way, through Madeket, and you come out at a different beach! The tiny downtown of Madeket is interesting -- very picturesque! The units at Tristram's Landing are individual, free-standing cottages of various size configurations and are very lovely. If you like the area, you may want to try Brant Point Courtyard. Downtown Nantucket is full of interesting and unique shops, museums, and restaurants. There's never a dull moment here!
Come to Nantucket any time of year by boat or plane. Although a summer destination for many people, an off-season island visit is a special treat. Autumn on Nantucket is glorious, as the gardens of late summer are still blooming and the sun-drenched days are warm enough for swimming right through September. Celebrate the Annual Christmas Stroll the first weekend in December as part of a month-long Nantucket Noel celebration when the air is crisp, the shopping unhurried, and the island is dressed for an old-fashioned Christmas. Then come celebrate with us in April when millions of daffodils herald the coming of spring. Bicyclists come to Nantucket to explore miles of bike trails.
