Nantucket

Some 30 miles offshore, this picture-perfect island is free of neon signs and fast food.

Take the ferry from Hyannis – you don’t even need a car – and kick back and unwind: walk the unspoiled beaches by day; eat in high-class restaurants by night.

For some local insight, visit the Whaling Museum that reflects the industry that provided the island’s wealth centuries ago.

There were a lot of highlights on the holiday and really unfair to pick one or two out but we had another great holiday with Frontier America.
