Nantucket is a fantastic destination for a family vacation. It is packed full of things to do for all the family, so you cannot choose anywhere much better than here. However, parents always fear that they will not be able to keep the kids entertained for the entire vacation. If you want to ensure that no one gets bored while you are away, here are a few ideas for keeping the kids happy.

Choose a Suitable Vacation Home

The first thing that you should do is make sure you find a vacation home that will be suitable for everyone. There are no shortages of vacation rentals in Nantucket, but your base for your vacation can play a large role in how much enjoyment your kids get from your time here.

Try to look for Nantucket vacation rentals that have everything you need to keep the kids happy. This could include a lot of space, both indoors and outdoors, so that they have plenty of room to play. You could also look for one that is located near to some of the main attractions, and maybe even a beach.

Plan Trips to Popular Attractions

You won’t have trouble finding popular attractions for kids in Nantucket. In fact, you’ll have more problems choosing which ones you want to visit because there are so many. For example, you could go on a whale or seal-watching cruise, visit the Nantucket Aquarium for a morning, go on a nature walk to discover more of the island, head to Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge or spend a day at the Children’s Beach, which has a playground and lots of activities.

Plan Some Fun Activities

As well as attractions for kids, you will also find plenty of activities for the whole family when you stay in Nantucket. There are lots of bike paths all over the island so you could easily rent bikes for the day and see even more of Nantucket. There are also sports like hockey and soccer that are specially arranged for kids, and there’s even a kids’ yoga class. For the younger kids, Story Time at Nantucket Atheneum could be a good idea.

Head to the Beach

There are some truly fantastic beaches in Nantucket, and you could easily spend many days at the beach if the weather is fine. Some are gentle and relaxing, like Nantucket Sound, but there are others that have larger waves as well. Some of the most popular beaches apart from the Children’s Beach include Surfside Beach, Madaket Beach and Cisco Beach, but there are many more.

Enjoy Your Family Vacation in Nantucket

Nantucket is a fantastic destination for family vacations. The kids will absolutely love it here as there is plenty to do to keep them busy every day of your vacation. However, it is still worth spending a bit of time planning some activities for your vacation to ensure that you always have something to do, and remember to spend some time over choosing your vacation rental to ensure you find the perfect place.

    Yes, the beach. If you give us a beach and a book....all is right with the world.

    We are actually going to be at the beach in December. Can't wait :)
