  • Daffodil Day Weekend Deals

    Daffodil Day Weekend - Celebrate with our Dafodil Deals

    Daffodil Weekend is this weekend on Nantucket. It begins today, April 27th, and runs through April 29th, 2012. You may not know much about it, but the festival began in 1974 and has grown to become one of the most popular spring events on Nantucket, making it a great time to visit our island. Over three million daffodils bloom each spring and they are put to good use in brightening Nantucket. Daffodils are used to decorate beautiful antique cars which form a parade starting on Main Street and driving out along the daffodil lined Milestone Road to 'Sconset for a big picnic. Store Fronts in town get in the spirit with daffodil themed window displays.

    Although not everyone can make the trip, we're celebrating the upcoming weekend with some Daffodil Deals for you. Save on yellow and green polos, daffodil doorknockers, and more. See all of our Daffodil Deals now.

  • JetBlue offering flights from Boston to Nantucket

    It seems that we missed this news when it was announced a few weeks ago. JetBlue has announced that they will be operating flights from Boston to and from Nantucket beginning May 17th. This will be a seasonal service that will run through September 4, 2012. There will just be one flight daily each direction.

    JetBlue has offered flights from Boston to/from Nantucket since 2007 through a partnership with Cape Air/Nantucket Airlines. However, this new service will be operated directly by JetBlue. It looks as though that partnership still exists. When searching for flights through Boston, there are flights to/from Boston offered by both JetBlue and Cape Air.

    The JetBlue planes will be quite a bit bigger than the Cessna 402s that Cape Air uses. I know a lot of people get a little nervous when getting on the Cessnas, but I actually like flying on smaller planes. Have you flown to Nantucket? What's your preference?

    Daffodil Weekend Antique Car Parade - NantucketDaffodil Festival Weekend is coming up next month on Nantucket, taking place from April 27th through April 29th, 2012. The festival began in 1974 and has grown to become one of the most popular spring events on Nantucket, making it a great time to visit our island.

    Over three million daffodils bloom each spring and they are put to good use in brightening Nantucket. Daffodils are used to decorate beautiful antique cars which form a parade starting on Main Street and driving out along the daffodil lined Milestone Road to 'Sconset for a big picnic. Store Fronts in town get in the spirit with daffodil themed window displays. Be on the lookout because you may even see some people who have decorated themselves with flowers!

    Other weekend events include the The Annual Daffy Dog Parade, Nantucket Garden Club’s Daffodil Show, Children’s Daffodil Parade and The Daffy Hat Pageant. It's a great time to stroll around town, watch the parade, have a picnic and generally enjoy spring on Nantucket.

    If you make it over the island, be sure to stop by our retail stores to do some local shopping on Nantucket. Our stores are sure to be decorated with yellow and green.

    Check the Chamber of Commerce site for more information on Daffodil Weekend. And if you're looking for a place to stay, try contacting Beacon Real Estate for help with a Nantucket home rental.
