Nantucket Summer things to do 2024

A summer on Nantucket is an experience unlike any other. At Jordan Real Estate, we’re here to guide you through an island bucket list that promises to create an unforgettable summer experience. From the sandy shores to the cobblestone streets and everything in between, let us lead you on a path to a summer you’ll never forget.

Relax on the Beach: Sink your toes into the soft sand of Surfside Beach, Madaket Beach, or Cisco Beach. Or venture to Dionis or 40th Pole and enjoy smoother waves due to their Northshore location.
