The Experience

Atlantic Islands & Beachside Villages

It’ll be early on. You’ll round a corner on one of the beach roads, maybe in ‘Sconset or Aquinnah. And it will hit you. The quiet. The open Atlantic pulsing on the shore. Sea birds above and a beach breeze rustling the dunes. It gives you that “I’m never going back” feeling where you imagine selling all your possessions and buying a lobster boat. It’s okay, the feeling passes eventually. But you’ll have five days to enjoy it. Gentle, tranquil rides past scenic beaches and cranberry bogs Fresh seafood and gracious island hospitality Tackle hills to the red-clay cliffs of Aquinnah, with a 200-year-old lighthouse Edgartown’s colonial roots and art galleries Learn maritime history at the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum
