Nantucket is one of our favorite wedding locations. Every single place you look is gorgeous, especially in Sconset. Because it's an island, it's not easy to get there but we found it best to fly in from a large East coast city vs attempting to take a ferry. Some of the ferrys are 4 hours! We think Nantucket makes the perfect destination wedding. It sits about 30 miles (50 km) south of Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. The name "Nantucket" is adapted from similar Algonquian names for the island, perhaps meaning "faraway land or island." A lot of places only accept cash, there are taxis and Ubers/Lyft available but the best way to travel is by renting a place where you can walk or bike everywhere.
