Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to be on Nantucket as the island is rapidly transforming into a Holiday Wonderland! The Christmas Trees get set up along the downtown streets, our local retailers have great sales, restaurants offer nightly specials, and everyone is getting their shopping lists together. Thanksgiving on Nantucket involves Red Tickets, traditional and non-traditional feasts and so much more all with a local island spin.
