Overall Guide: Not for people seeking glitzy night life. It's for those who love good food, beautiful beaches with few restrictions and open spaces. Great for families and those who love the water. Good public golf course. Limited availability of tennis.
Not to be missed:
Whaling Museum
Maria Mitchell/Critter Cruise
