If you have not already figured out from my zillion Instagram pics Nantucket is one of my favorite places on the planet. I have only been there a handful of times and each time I fall more in love with this charming Island. I don’t know how to explain it but unlike any where else I have ever been.

It truly is #myhappyplace.

I specifically bought a lottery ticket because when I hit it big this will be where I purchased my next abode. In the meantime, I will plan summer visits and continue to dream.

have gathered together my Nantucket Guide for you. There are so many fabulous shops, restaurants and hotels I have condensed the info to give you the best of the best.
