My dad and little brother left early this morning, stuffed full of Chris’ amazing Thanksgiving food and ready to get of the island before the Biden’s take over the air space. With all the visitors we’ve had, we have developed a sort of unofficial itinerary of “the sights” every Nantucket visitor must see.
Of course, we walk all over town to look at (but usually not in) shops. We walk by the marina to ogle gigantic yachts. We always stop to have a fabulous dinner at the Brotherhood (which is such a must on Nantucket that the Biden’s were eating there when Chris went to work today).And, during the winter, we get to hang upstairs in our own private pool hall.
We usually end up at Tupency Links, Pip’s favorite part of the island.
And what’s Nantucket without a visit to a lighthouse? Dad wanted to drive around and see the island; getting in the car is not really my favorite thing, but it was good to indulge his curiosity. Plus, he was already way out of his element spending Thanksgiving in our TV-less house (no football). So we drove out to the Sankaty Head Lighthouse which had been restored since I was last there two years ago.
I think it’s interesting what things we decide to show people when they visit us. A lot of times, I also throw the old mill into the tour and if the visitor is right, then the Take-it-or-Leave-it is a good destination, too. What would/do you show visitors to your town?
