What To Do on an Easter Trip to Nantucket

Easter weekend is the perfect time for a short getaway. If you have kids, they’re likely off from school for at least a little while. Considering how pleasant Nantucket is during the spring, this is a perfect time to make a visit to the island.

There’s plenty to do on the island throughout the spring, but Easter weekend is an especially fun time. Here are a few things to do on Nantucket during the upcoming Easter holiday:

Getting in the Spirit of the Holiday

There is no shortage of Easter egg hunts held on the island, which is especially important if you’re travelling with children. Many of the local churches, farms, and organizations hold egg hunts in the days leading up to Easter. Just be sure to register ahead of time to reserve a spot for your child. And if you’re looking to attend mass for one of the holy days during the week or Easter itself, there’s quite a few churches spread throughout the island.

Easter Dining

Whether you’re travelling with kids or just adults, the dining selection is going to be quite important. Easter wouldn’t be quite the same without brunch or dinner. If you’re looking to enjoy a nice holiday meal, the island will have quite a few options for you throughout the week. Whether you’re looking for the tradition Easter fare or something a little more adventurous, there will be somewhere willing to accommodate you.

Enjoy the Beauty

Nantucket is a beautiful place in the spring, but it’s also not quite as crowded, especially in the early days of the season. There will still be restaurants and other businesses open, but you won’t have the crowds that you tend to see in the later spring and summer. This gives you the opportunity to enjoy the idyllic beauty of the landscape.

One way to take in the beauty of the island is to rent a bike to ride around wherever you please. Nantucket Bike Shop is the perfect place to go to do just that.
