    So many neat things to see. We learned a lot and also enjoyed some relaxing time on the rooftop deck prior to our departure.

    The combination of knowledgeable guides and informative videos in the movie room ensures a visit to this Shipwreck& Lifesaving Museum is not only educational but also engaging and unforgettable experience. It is a place where history comes to life through the compelling narratives showcased in the videos and the expertise of the guides in their informative comments. The actual remnants on display are fascinating.

    The trip over and back was a great ride on the boat. It was loaded with illegals which was very uncomfortable and they were not the most polite people be around. I would not go over there again because of that.

    Great tour! I was traveling the Island Hopper with Wolf Bus Tours. My tour was interrupted by an emergency at home. Everyone was very helpful in getting me an earlier ferry and setting me on my way. Telephone service was spotty with Verizon.

    I had read it was perfect for sunset and it certainly was. Even in November. Even saw a seal popping his head in and out of the water.

    A 15 mile bike trip from Broad St.
    We took the Milestone Road which has a dedicated bike path most of way until you are just about in the quaint town of Siasconset. Loved this little town.
    We left at 9:30am and traffic wasn’t bad.

    On the way back we took the Polpis Bike Path. When we got back to town traffic was heavy and we actually went around and followed side streets.

    The lighthouse history is documented well at the sight. The bluffs are interesting and there’s signs about erosion.

    We rode our bikes from Sconset to Surfside beach and easily arrived at the parking area with lots of space for bikes, scooters and mopeds. There are bathrooms, showers at the parking lot. It’s an easy walk to the wide Sandy beach there with waves crashing. They do allow pets on a leash there, and there were a few families out enjoying the late sun but not crowded at all and a pleasant place to enjoy the surf and sun. Beautiful and pristine best describes Surfside beach.

    This needs to be a 'must do' in Nantucket, and even for locals. Knowledgeable staff, absolutely incredible night sky gazing, and so easy to get to. Make sure you make time for this.

    We had a delicious Mother's day brunch of Lobster benedict and crab cakes at Toppers. Our hotel's car drove us to a meeting place where the Wauwinet van then met us to drive us to the hotel for brunch. We were not staying at the hotel. It's in a more remote location on the island, but so beautiful on the water. Would definitely come back to stay at hotel and for another great meal at Toppers. There is a beautiful dock a short walk from the hotel on their property that leads to the water for great photos, and a bench that sits on the outer edge of the dock. Beautiful views.

    Did this while on Nantucket for this past weekend. Very beautiful. The houses in town near the start of the hike are so cute -great to wander around there as well. Highly recommend this for anyone on Nantucket that loves beautiful walks.

    I wanted do some research on my ancestor Peter Folger. The staff was very helpful in pulling a book out of storage that gave me more information on Peter and other Folgers. Nice place to read in quiet too.
