Nantucket Named Best Island in the World by Nantional Geographic

As if we didn't already know it, Nantucket is the Best Island in the World. According to Boston Globe National Geographic Voted Nantucket Island as the Best Island in the World. Based on their book "Best of Everything" Nantucket made it as the Best Island out of the Ten Islands listed.

"Nantucket was once one of the richest places in America, built on the profits of the whale oil industry. Even today in the delectable old town there are fine brick houses with silver mailboxes. Old-time sailors used to call Nantucket 'The Little Grey Lady of the Sea.' On the misty morning I first arrived there, I could understand why. A woman was riding a horse along the beach to the utter delight of her family aboard my ferry, and she bore a banner that said 'Crazy Aunt Rides Again.' It is a unique place.' " {Boston Magazine}

This is fantastic news!
