For families with children there are wonderful camps and programs in the arts, sailing, marine science and sports. For those interested in water sports check out Nantucket Community Sailing. ACK Surf located at Cisco Beach (our personal favorite) has a great surf school or personal/group lessons. Cisco Brewery is a favorite casual apres beach destination for locals and visitors alike. Stop in for a couple beers, raw bar, snacks and live music. On Saturdays head over to the Farmers and Craft Market (right off Center Street) for fresh produce, flowers,beautiful hand crafted textiles, gifts jewelry. and gourmet foods, preserves, local honey and more. Both the Dreamland and Starlight theaters are 2 blocks away and show the most up to dates films. Our favorite spot for long walks or runs is Sanford Farm. For a challenging bike ride take Polpis Rd out to Sconset and back. The Yoga room is a tranquil spot for those looking to do yoga or meditat.For a fun casual spot for sunset dinner and drinks head to Millies in Madaket. For a special occasion dinner no place beats The Galley (directly on Jetties Beach) but be sure to make reservations well in advance. There is SO much to see and do on Nantucket.
