30 miles south of Cape Cod, Nantucket fattened itself like a grey seal pup on its mother's milk from the whaling industry in the nineteenth century. It is now a summer escape for high powered types from New York and Boston, who are no doubt attracted by its rose-embroidery, cobbly streets, and beaches of golden sand.

Culture of the sea
A must-see in Nantucket is the evocative Whaling Museum, housed in an old whale oil (spermaceti) candle factory. You can see engravings and carvings by sailors on ivory, whalebone and baleen, a 46 foot sperm whale skeleton, and incredible views from the rooftop deck. Immerse yourself in the historic atmosphere at this incredible prospect on the past. The Museum of African American History is a fascinating record of the influential island community.
Kids will adore visits to the Old Gaol, where drunken sailors used to spend the night. Built in 1806, the jail has over 125 years of history intertwined with the swashbuckling salty sea dogs who inhabited this part of America's coast in the old days. Jetties Beach, one mile north-west of the town is the best beach around, and well equipped for all kinds of outdoor water sports. Children's Beach on South Beach Street is also a great choice, and has a fun playground and picnic area.
