Overview

In My Footsteps-A Traveler's Guide to Nantucket by Christopher Setterlund

Thirty miles off the Cape Cod shore sits the quaint historic island of Nantucket, the Far Away Island. Once one of the richest towns in America thanks to its leading role in the whaling industry, the island reinvented itself in the twentieth century as a destination spot for tourists. This traveler's guide takes you on a round-the-island tour, noting its infamous cobblestone streets, world-renowned restaurants, museums, fabulous shops, and acres of conservation lands. You'll discover the historic homes, lighthouses, and beaches that make the island famous, but also some truly incredible locations only a local would know. Brant Point Lighthouse, the Nantucket Whaling Museum, Madaket Beach, and Sconset Village are only the beginning. See why Nantucket is a favorite vacation spot for everyone from families with young children to corporate executives looking for a paradise to truly get away from it all.
