The town and island of Nantucket is such a quintessential New England location – with its traditional homes, gorgeous water views, and quaint shops and restaurants. While it’s typically considered a summer destination, like the rest of New England, it’s beautiful year round. Nantucket’s Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting Nantucket Noel and the signature event – the Christmas Stroll, and many Nantucket hotels are open for the occasion.
The annual Christmas stroll includes traditional New England Christmas foods, Victorian dressed carolers, Santa Claus, holiday decor, and much more. It takes place from December 2-4, 2011, and the shops and restaurants are open for holiday shoppers. During the weekend, Santa Claus will make his grand arrival via a Coast Guard Vessel – something you just won’t see anywhere else.
Several of the Nantucket Island Resort hotels are open for the Christmas Stroll Weekend. Options include the Jared Coffin House, which is centrally located just a few blocks away from all of the action, the famous White Elephant Hotel, the Cottages and Lofts at the Boat Basin (great for families), and the luxurious and deluxe White Elephant Hotel Residences (for a special treat during the Christmas Stroll weekend!).
