I have to say one of the best times to visit Nantucket is after the 4th of July. The heart of Nantucket is clad in an onslaught of red, white and blue which makes for a spirited summer celebration with friends and family. A stroll up the cobblestone Main Street will lead you to these beautiful brick houses that there were built by whaling merchant Joseph Starbuck in 1837 (completed in 1839) for his three sons. They are fondly known as “The Three Bricks” by locals and if you wish to read up on the history of these dwellings you may want to visit the Nantucket Historical Association via www.nha.org
