Took the Steamship Authority High Speed Ferry 8AM...arrived 9AM. Rented a Fiat 500C Convertible from Affordable Rentals right around the corner from the Ferry Terminal. Cool, car and very cool company!!!! Driving in Nantucket is nightmarish.....tons of traffic, tons of work trucks.....everyone drives a full size SUV or full size pick up or a mini cooper...roads are narrow, twisty, poorly marked with tons of blind driveways and other hazards......not to mention the 100s of cyclists all over the roads in the towns....driving there was the least pleasurable tourist driving experience of my life. Beaches are as other noted...Surfside is the BEST!!! Parked and waked around Main/Center/Federal/Easy St area....shops and restaurants are 25% (or more) overpriced. Most restaurants are zooty and pretentious. But when they cancelled the last ferry of the day without notice and left us holding the bag was when I decided the bad outweighed the good. Cost us $150 to fly back to Hyannis. Chatham Beaches and Yarmouth beaches and the Nat Seashore are just as nice. You don't need to go to Nantucket to go to the beach. It's not quaint or homey or anything else....it's a giant noisy crowded kinda dirty suburb on an island....and an expensive one at that. Glad I can cross going there off my bucketlist.
