Nantucket Webcam, Massachusetts


Nantucket, Massachusetts

Live webcam from Nantucket, Massachusetts, a small island located about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of Cape Cod. Settled by English colonists in 1659, it was originally inhabited by the Wampanoag people. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, Nantucket was a major center of the American whaling industry, which led to significant economic growth and the construction of many historic buildings that remain today. Although the whaling industry declined in the mid-19th century, Nantucket later emerged as a popular summer resort and tourist destination.

The island spans about 48 square miles (124 square kilometers) and features a maritime climate with mild winters and warm summers. It is renowned for its beautiful beaches, such as Surfside Beach and Madaket Beach, as well as its natural reserves like the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge. Nantucket’s well-preserved historic architecture, including homes and buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, adds to its charm. Key attractions include the Nantucket Whaling Museum, Brant Point Lighthouse, and numerous historic sites.

Tourism is Nantucket’s primary economic driver, attracting thousands of visitors each year. The island hosts several annual events, such as the Nantucket Wine Festival and Nantucket Film Festival, which contribute to its vibrant cultural scene. Transportation options include regular ferry services from Hyannis, Massachusetts, flights from Nantucket Memorial Airport, and local on-island transportation such as cars, bicycles, and a shuttle bus service.
