Get in the Groove: Nantucket GPS

If there weren’t reason enough to visit Nantucket this summer—given its quaint cobblestone streets, charming New England restaurants, and beautiful coastline—the annual Tim Russert Summer Groove, held Aug. 18, is an additional come-hither Nantucket calling card. The largest benefit for the Nantucket Boys and Girls Club, it benefits 1,000 children and teen members, and is the bookend to a Nantucket summer season.


So, as you celebrate a weekend of dancing, fine wine, and enticing live auction items that include an Aspen escape with Sentient Jet, here’s your insider access to the ultimate 24 hours on Nantucket—courtesy of Nantucket Boys and Girls Club Board of Trustees Chair, Lauren Marttila:

Sunrise Workout: Beach barre class at Nobadeer Beach with Forme Barre Fitness Nantucket.

Breakfast Hot Spot: Island Kitchen

Boutique Hopping: Milly & Grace, Bodega Nantucket, The Lovely, Nantucket Looms Interiors, Parchment. 

Best Cafe: Handlebar Café and Petticoat Row

Ladies Who Lunch: Centre Street Bistro (casual) and Cru Oyster Bar Nantucket (dressy)

Local Art Scene: The Whaling Museum is superb, like a moment in time. And the contemporary art scene on Nantucket is really hot right now. Centre Street is where it’s at.

Favorite Dinner Spot: I like to eat! Boarding House, The Pearl, Nautilus, The Proprietors Bar & Table, Topper’s Deck at The Wauwinet. I could go on and on.

Nightcap: You know it was a fun night if it ended at The Chicken Box. Bonus points if you go there after the Tim Russert Summer Groove wearing the baseball hat you get that night.
