Nantucket has a history steeped in the whaling industry. Travel 15-25 miles offshore on the Shearwater to see humpback, finback and minke whales as well as a variety of other marine animals and birds. With an average of 30 to 60 identified whales per trip, Shearwater guarantees whale sightings! They also offer Nantucket Seal Cruises to Muskeget Island, Nantucket Harbor Cruises and fishing charters.
Thousands of world-famous rhododendrons in over 100 varieties and an explosion of color cover 100 acres with spectacular blooms. Enjoy a peaceful walk surrounded by walls of flowers, learn more about Heritage’s storied rhododendron legacy, participate in activities with horticulture experts, and take one of these signature plants home with you from the special plant sale.

Join us and follow our P-Town insider: @jsugarmama for week #5 of our #trybeforeyoubuy sweepstakes with @airbnb. More later while we check out this quirky beach community -- a blend of small-town enchantment and big-city pluck.
Locals and regulars refer to the New England beach town of Provincetown, MA, as “Ptown.” They joke that their classic, yet quirky, community is geographically located at the end of the world. Why? It’s way out there, residing at the easternmost tip of Cape Cod.
