If you want a definition of an ideal Nor'easter summer destination, Nantucket, Massachusetts may be it. The moment you arrive you can feel your pulse slow down as you adjust to the relaxed pace of island living.

This idyllic island boasts some of the best restaurants in New England and dining on fresh seafood and lobster is worth the trip. Just be forewarned... a trip to Nantucket is more than a destination; one visit will make you a lifetime islander at heart.
