Four hundred years of maritime history are carefully preserved in Nantucket’s museums and architecture. Regular festivals attract international attention: Nantucket Wine & Food Festival takes place each May and events include dinners in island mansions, wine tastings, and demonstrations by celebrity chefs; June’s film festival has a focus on screenwriting and independent films. Nantucket has been a haven for artists for years and galleries feature many local and international artists. Pick up the arts Nantucket guide and drop into one of the many galleries for wine and cheese on Friday nights.
