What is the best time to visit Nantucket?

The best time of year to visit Nantucket is the summer when the temperatures are warm, the beaches are sunny, and the town is buzzing with energy. But summer is also the busiest time of year for a Nantucket vacation, and island is crowded with tourists. The spring and fall months are quieter and perfect for a relaxed getaway with most shops, restaurants, and attractions still open. The Wauwinet is open from late April through the end of October.
