The most popular time to visit Nantucket is during the summer months when there isn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun is shining. That said, we recommend visiting in the shoulder months during spring or fall. September is most ideal as the weather is still warm, shops are still open, and there aren’t nearly as many crowds as there are during the summer. If you’re feeling adventurous, visiting in December is always a treat as the whole town is wrapped up like a Christmas tree.
