I just returned from a lovely trip from what I like to call the happiest place on earth - Nantucket! (sorry Disney). Nantucket, located 30 miles south of Cape Cod, is home to (what I think) New England's best beaches, cobblestone roads, and quaint restaurants and shops. I like to compare it to walking around in the middle of a really good novel or Hallmark movie, pretty picturesque and perfect. Here's a recap of where I stayed, where I ate, and what I did over the course of 3 days.
The Summer House at their Fair St. location which is centrally located in downtown Nantucket. The accommodations in Nantucket are mostly inn like, so the rooms are a bit older but I find them to be very New England and welcoming.
Where I Ate
We asked some locals for a dinner recommendation and they suggested Millies in Madeket. What a great recommend! We enjoyed a sunset dinner surrounded by amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. Millies' has a Mexican vibe with a great array of seafood inspired taco dishes.

What I Did:
The other perk of staying at The Summer House was access to a private beach and beach club. A car drove us right to the beach club where they provided chairs and towels and where we basically loved our life for the day. Here is the beach club seen through my new Lokai bracelet (stay humble, stay hopeful, read all about it!).
It rained in Nantucket on our last day so we decided to fill the day with lots of shopping downtown. No trip to the island can't be complete without a stop at Aunt Leah's Fudge The M&M peanut butter tastes like an inside of a Reese's Pieces. They ship all over the country. You're welcome.
I had the best time in Nantucket and hope you get a chance to visit this slice of heaven!
