Many people may think of Nantucket as a summer vacation destination, but Nantucket has plenty to offer visitors regardless of the season. One of the most special times of year on the Island is winter. Not only does the island turn into a picturesque New England winter wonderland, but you will also enjoy empty beaches and off-season pricing.
