My second year traveling to Nantucket for Wine Fest. If you haven't gone, GO! It is an amazing time, with beautiful beaches and five-star restaurants and WINE. Meeting wonderful people along the way is definitely one of the highlights.

Walked around the beach, saw birds and seals. Lots of fun. They had BIKE racks to lock you bike to. The beach was flat and easy to do. If you are handicap DO NOT do it.

This is always a good fishing location! Usually not crowded, you do have to walk a lot. For 100 I could repeat the first part. That do it?
