In the Nantucket Spring the fragrant lilacs, yellow forsythia and flowering trees come to life. The Daffodil Festival Weekend celebrates the millions of daffodils of every color, shape and size that bloom on the island.
Nantucket is on the same latitude as Rome, so summers are hot and sunny with blue skies and lush greenery, cheerful flowers and colourful beach umbrellas. With a beautiful coastline, Nantucket is perfect for endless outdoor summer adventures. Hot beaches, refreshing water – and lots of clams, lobster, and ice cream.
The fall foliage colour is unbelievable as the trees change from green to bright orange and yellow with the distinctive red of the sugar maple and cranberry harvest. The coast has spectacular panoramic views with the vibrant fall woodland and dune colours against the brilliant blue of the ocean.
In winter quiet sparkling snow creates magical scenes in Nantucket. During the holidays, everything is aglow – from lighthouses to Christmas trees. The island sparkles in winter. Blanketed in snow, white church steeples stand out against deep blue sky.
