Town of Nantucket



Explore Nantucket Town!

Nantucket Town features world-class restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, inns, museums, tours, and historic sites. The cobblestones take you back to the Whaling Era, which is accented by the historic homes that line the streets. Nantucket's Town is centrally located on the island, and where the ferries depart and arrive. Loads of charm, history, and ocean views await.

Town Attractions

This part of the island has the most to do no matter what your interests are. Here are a few must-do's:




  • Languedoc for romantic, French cuisine

  • Ventuno for delicious, authentic Italian food

  • The Rose & Crown for daily entertainment and a fun American sports pub

  • The Club Car to dine in their iconic railway car

  • The Brotherhood of Thieves for a piece of Nantucket history (dine downstairs in their historic pub or upstairs in their recently renovated sushi bar)

Town Beaches

Most of the waterfront in Town is dominated by the harbor, ferries, and wharves. A busy port for public and private boat use, the waters are calm with little to no waves. If you're looking for water, check out The Creeks at the end of Washington Street, where you can also find kayak and paddleboard rentals. Local restaurants also offer insane water views, and we suggest dining waterfront at Cru (one of the best lobster rolls!) or harborfront at Bar Yoshi.

Fun fact: Together with the small islands of Tuckernuck and Muskeget, it constitutes the Town and County of Nantucket, a combined county/town government that is part of the U.S. state of Massachusetts, the only consolidated town-county in Massachusetts.
