The Nantucket Historic Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket Island and fosters an appreciation of its historic significance. In this section, you will find information on the Nantucket Whaling Museum, the Hadwen House, the Oldest House, the Old Mill, the Greater Light, and the Quaker Meetinghouse.
Nantucket has some of the finest beaches in the northeastern United States. The north shore beaches are protected by Nantucket Sound and generally have few waves. The south shore beaches, open to the ocean have large waves and strong currents.
Nantucket waters are great for sailing, motor-boating, kayaking and fishing. Sport fishing boats, day sailboats and kayaks are available for charter either by the day or half-day. The Boating club is also available for membership style boating.
