Celebrate Christmas in Nantucket with these Festive Celebrations

In 1973, local businesses founded the Nantucket Christmas Stroll in an effort to prevent islanders from fleeing to Cape Cod to do their holiday shopping. Now, 45 years later, the annual event acts as a draw for tourists from all over the Northeast. Held the first weekend in December, hundreds of decorated seven-foot Christmas trees are illuminated while carolers sing familiar holiday tunes and merchants offer special deals and refreshments to customers.
