Fun Things To Do on Nantucket This Summer (For you and the kids!)

arrow

Lifestyle

With the sunny season quickly approaching, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite things to do on Nantucket (other than going to the beach!), as well as some recommendations on things to do with your kids on Nantucket. You don’t need an excuse to get over to Nantucket, but it’s nice to have a few ideas in your back pocket, which I’ll be sharing with you. I’ve also got a great photography event I would love to see you at when the summer kicks off so that you can document the summer of ‘23 in style.

Families

As a Boston photographer, I am always eagerly anticipating the arrival of spring. The warmth of the sun, the blooming flowers, the vibrant colors, and the excitement in the air, among many other things, make spring the perfect time for capturing beautiful outdoor photos. I love the way the light dances through the trees as the days lengthen, and the many opportunities to take advantage of New England’s natural beauty. Spring is a great time to get outside and take photos of all the beautiful flowers that emerge over the course of just a few short weeks, especially in the Boston area.
