Flights to Nantucket Island

Nantucket is a beach paradise located south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Much like its neighboring island, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket Island is a summer colony that boasts pristine beaches, powdery white sands, and romantic sunset views. Great deals and reasonably priced flights to Nantucket are possible when you book your tickets with Orbitz.com.

Nantucket Memorial Airport

Nantucket Memorial Airport is located just 3 miles southeast of downtown. It is one of the busiest airports in the state, easily overtaking the bigger Logan International Airport in passenger flights during the summer season. In the summer, the NRTA airport shuttles operate between the airport and the town. During off-peak seasons, taxis provide the most convenient transportation option. The fares depend on the destination zone and start at $12 per person. Car rental companies such as Hertz, Windmill Auto, and Nantucket Island Rent-A-Car are also available in the airport.

Destination and Weather Information

Nantucket Island is home to some of the world's most immaculate beaches, including the Great Beach, Surfside Beach, Brant Point Beach, and Madaket Beach, which are visited not only for their white sands and rolling waves but also for their picturesque sights and ideal fishing spots. Locals also celebrate their maritime lives with numerous festivals, such as the Nantucket Wine Festival, Daffodil Festival, Arts Week, Comedy Festival, and Book Festival. Cultural tourists will surely have fun in the Nantucket Dreamland, Starlight Theater, and the Children's Theater in Nantucket.

Summer is the perfect and most popular time to visit the island. Most days are sunny, and temperatures range from the high 60s to mid-70s. Summer nights cool down by 20 degrees during nighttime owing to the cool sea breeze and occasional summer rains. Autumn is also a popular season due to cooler temperatures and the less crowded beaches. Expect low-fare air tickets and easier hotel reservations in the fall.

Nantucket: a Place of Peace

Indigenous Americans referred to Nantucket as Canopache-or place of peace-and for years, the island has been the sanctuary of moneyed elites, peace-seeking tourists, and federally protected species. Booking flights to Nantucket is easy on Orbitz.com.

Nantucket When to Go

Nantucket bustles in the summer, when water temperatures hit highs and festival crowds enliven the streets. High season runs from the end of May to the beginning of September, but early June can bring unexpected values (room rates don’t hit their peak until after children get out of school).

Nantucket’s Indian summers mean that the weather stays warm through early fall. By mid-October, the air turns crisp, sea breezes chill the shores, and autumnal colors settle into the moors. By then, the vacation crowds have thinned and ferry schedules slow for the off-season.

The town dresses up for Christmas Stroll, the first week of December. Fireplaces glow through decorated windows, and carolers make their rounds on lit-up Main Street. After the Stroll, the shops hold sales before halting business for the rest of the year.

Activity picks up again in early spring. The Daffodil Festival (late  April/early May) greets spring with three million cheery blooms, while the Nantucket Wine Festival (end of May)—celebrated with sips from 165 wineries—marks the start of another busy season.
