Staying in the heart of Nantucket at the Jared Coffin House is so convenient for families. The Jared Coffin House welcomes families, giving each child a coloring book and markers and a Nantucket Kids' Adventure Guide.
Both Children's and Jetties Beaches are easy to get to from the hotel. The water at both beaches is calm since both are on the bay side of the island. The hotel even provides beach chairs and towels. If the family wants to learn about Nantucket history, the Nantucket Whaling Museum is only a block away. After a few hours learning about the early Nantucketers, families can wander through town exploring the many stores and restaurants. Kids will love the bookstores, bakery, candy stores and children's clothing and toy stores.
At night, there are early movies at the Dreamland Theater or waterview dining at Brant Point Grill where guests staying at the Jared Coffin House receive a 15% discount on food. The restaurants, an easy walk, feature kids' menus and a special Kids' Corner for Sunday Brunch.
There's so much to discover on the island for a Nantucket family vacation from bike riding to kayaking and all sorts of indoor and outdoor activities. To learn more, click here.
