Nantucket Island

Nantucket Island

Just Flight

Nantucket island sits just off the east coast of the US state of Massachusetts, below the long arm of Cape Cod. It's an island steeped in history dating back to the colonial days, but is best known as the centre of US whaling in the 19th century. These days the primary industry is tourism. From a quiet, isolated enclave of around 10,000 in the winter, the population explodes to around five times that in summer. Looking for the most expensive real estate in the country? Forget Manhattan, Oahu, or San Francisco. You'll find it right here in Nantucket.

Nantucket Memorial Airport (KACK) is the island's air-link to the rest of the world. Like the rest of the island, its architecture features heavy use of characteristic unpainted wood-shingled buildings and is loaded with New England charm.
