Staying ACKtive, Nantucket
Filed under Island Times
In normal times, April brings daffodils, and the re-opening of island businesses, and the influx of visitors. Today, April looks a little bit different. We are currently in shelter-in-place, just like many other cities and towns around the country. The re-opening of island businesses have been put on hold but the sun is shining and the daffodils are starting to bloom. One of the best ways to ward off the quarantine stir-crazies is to get some exercise! Below is a list of ways for Nantucketers to stay ACKtive!
Nantucket is blessed to have miles and miles and miles of walking trails. There are beach trails, wood walks and everything in between. Getting out for a walk in the beautiful Nantucket landscape is a great way to get the blood moving and to get a change of scenery. Visit the Land Bank website here for a map of all land bank properties. Remember to stay 6 feet apart while out enjoying all that Land Bank has to offer!
You can get outside while still practicing safe social distancing! The Nantucket Conservation Foundation’s properties are all open for visitors from sunrise to sunset. The NCF has put together a self-guided property guide so you can try a new place to explore. Click here to download the guide.
