What Do You Do in the Winter on Nantucket?

Living on island year-round we often hear the question from summer residents and visitors, “what do you do in the winter on Nantucket?” I always say that we live in a ski town with no mountain. There is plenty to do! Nantucket is still pretty lively throughout the winter and we are blessed with more mild weather than most places in New England.

My cousin has been coming out in the summer for her whole life. This past Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, she came for the first time during the winter on Nantucket. We were blessed with beautiful weather and even a light snowfall. We had a great weekend, enjoyed uncrowded restaurants like the Nautilus and Or, the Whale, a Brian Glowacki comedy show, cocktails at Cisco Brewery and an epic trip out to Great Point to look for snowy owls. As she left, she said that she never thought she would like the quiet offseason more than the summer.

For us who live here year-round, we understand how great the community is and how beautify special this island is 30 miles out to sea. This winter if you have an opportunity to come and check it out, we highly recommend it.

Danno Lynch

Danno, a native from Medfield, Massachusetts and fell in love with the beauty and serenity of Nantucket at a young age while spending summers vacationing here with his family. In the summer of 2009, Danno started working as mate on charter boats, quickly becoming a Captain, and has been running fishing charters ever since.

Working seasonally as a fishing guide has allowed Danno the opportunity to travel with the sun and share his passion for lacrosse, which he developed as a student athlete at Gettysburg College. He would spend his winters on the west coast, in California and Hawaii, coaching high school lacrosse. He also worked as a youth mentor, creating art murals around Maui.

With Nantucket now his year-round home, Danno enjoys island living with his fiancé, who works with the Nantucket senior community. He values being a part of the Fisher Real Estate team. With his work ethic, positive attitude, and integrity we are thrilled to have him on board.
