One of the many reasons that the island of Nantucket is so appealing to both it’s residents and seasonal visitors, is that it takes a little bit of love and committment to make the trip 30 miles out. Accessible only by sea or air, it helps keep the traffic down during even the busiest of months.
If you could imagine, it would take early-century vacationers upwards of two full days to make the journey. Today it’s just a fraction of that. Here is list of the most current ways to get on and off the island, as well as to various transportation hubs.
