NANTUCKET IN 12 HOURS

12-hours-on-nantucket-caitlin-elliott-travel-new-england

A few weeks ago I was asked to shoot on Nantucket and I could not say no.  A ferry ticket to Nantucket and being able to explore the island taking photos for a brand's social pages and e-commerce site?  I would have been crazy to say no!  I hopped on that 8am ferry with butterflies and made my way to the top deck.  Three camera batteries and a cup of coffee in hand, I was ready to conquer the island.

I don't have a place to stay on the island so I knew I would have to make the most out of the 12 hours I was going to be there.  If you are in the same boat (or ferry 😉) as I was, I have put together the top spots you must see while on the island

1. SANKATY LIGHTHOUSE

one of my new favorite lighthouses.. the list is getting a bit long.

2. THE JUICE BAR

the most delicious smoothie ever so i went back for an ice cream cone before the ferry (special of the day, banana's foster was out of this world).

3. 'SCONSET BLUFF WALK

charming cottages and beautiful views that will clear your mind.

4. PROVISIONS

i had the most delicious BLT i have ever had here.  the bread, the ingredients, so fresh!

5. BRANT POINT LIGHTHOUSE

picturesque nantucket (it doesn't hurt that T proposed in front of the replica either).

6. SKINNY DIP NANTUCKET

an adorable collection of brands.  good luck leaving empty handed.

7.  NATIV MADE

i stopped here for breakfast to grab an acai bowl and it was incredible.  they use food made with organic and local ingredients so it even makes you feel good.

8.  JETTIES BEACH

what is a trip to nantucket without a little beach action?

9.  CISCO BREWERS

unforunately, i didn't have enough time but i've heard only good things. be sure to check out their wines, beers, and spirits made on island.

10.  THE CHICKEN BOX

again, i didn't have the time but it sounds like the best time when you're looking for a night out!

 

Think I missed something?  Let me know in the comments below and I will head on over there the next time I am on island time!
