We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Checking In: White Elephant, Nantucket

Henley Vazquez

 

Everyone wants to escape the city heat in the summer, so skip the traffic on the LIE, hop on a quick flight and land in the preppy paradise of Nantucket. 


BESTS

  • The spa is a must-stop to unwind after a day of exploring the island. It also makes for a perfect add on to a babymoon with their prenatal massage or a romantic weekend with a couple's massage.
  • The hotel is extremely family-friendly with everything you could need from strollers to sippy cups available at the front desk. The restaurant has a kids' menu and emergency diapers are always on hand. 
  • All bookings can be made before you go through their pre-arrival concierge. 

BASICS

  • A classic waterfront resort on Nantucket Harbor with porches dotted with wicker chairs for lounging and nautical decor.
  • For a family, suites and cottages with pullout sofas are a great fit, plus most have outdoor patios. There are also lofts in town, which are perfect for feeling like a local. 
  • The Brant Point Grill serves up all of the greatest hits including New England clam chowder, Nantucket Crab cakes and local lobster. 

And check out their sister property, White Elephant Village...

Getting There

Nantucket can be reached by sea or air. It's a quick hour-long flight from NYC. You can fly jetBlue from JFK seasonally or hop on a charter from Tradewind out of Teterboro or White Plains. You can also drive and take the high-speed ferry from Saquatucket Harbor in Harwich Port or the busier Hyannis Port (about an hour).
