Nantucket is a 50-square mile island of incredible beaches, natural beauty and old-time charm, situated approximately 16 miles south of Cape Cod. The year round population is about 11,000. Nantucket's charm and historic underpinnings are embodied in its well-preserved architecture and its moors, plains and beaches. For more than 150 years Nantucket served as the center of the world's whaling industry. The Nantucket economy is based upon tourism and second-home development. Connected to Hyannis by two ferry services and several airlines, the island summer population peaks at over 40,000 in August. Everyone can enjoy Nantucket's many bike paths and beaches, as well as seasonal events including the Annual Daffodil Weekend, Nantucket Wine Festival, The Nantucket Film Festival, Harborfest and the Cranberry Festival.
