It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Nantucket

Peak Season: May to early-September

The weather is divine and everything is open for business but you can also count on crowds and high prices. Book hotels at least three months in advance. Temperatures average 60 degrees in spring and fall and around 75 degrees in summer.

Off Season: November to February

Sure, it’s New England but, thanks to its proximity to the ocean, winters are milder here than on the mainland (30-degrees is normal). Although many establishments close over the winter, places usually remain open for Thanksgiving and Noel events.

Sweet Spot: March; April; late-September to October

If you’re lucky, the weather will cooperate and you’ll get warm days along with low prices and no crowds. Late April’s Daffodil Weekend is a great way to celebrate the coming of summer. Temperatures range between 35 and 50 degrees.
