A TANK AWAY
In fall, the splendor of Nantucket without summer crowds
We love this beautiful island best in fall, when the light turns golden and the cranberry bogs crimson; the surf runs wild, but the vibe is mellow. It’s the perfect time to watch pods of returning seals sunning themselves on rocks, to ride a bike along autumn-tinged marshlands, and return to warm drinks by a fire. You can actually get a table at most of Nantucket’s best restaurants; lodging prices drop; and the island hosts many fall events.
