Nantucket Island can be accessed by ferries from Hyannis on Cape Cod or major airports in Northeast US
Sankaty Head Lighthouse sits on a high bluff on eastern end of Nantucket Island. It's where the sun first rises on east coast of US. The bluff has experienced so much erosion they have had to erect a fence to protect people who come to visit the property. On a summer morning, with sun rising at 5:30, I caught it looking like it was coming over the fence.
