Brant Point Light Station
There is probably no more frequently photographed lighthouse in America than this one, the second oldest in the country (the original was built in 1746). The lighthouse sits at Brant Point and all ferries, yachts and ships from the mainland pass its picturesque side on their way into the harbor. To visit the lighthouse up close, walk along Easton Street and continue over the wooden footbridge. The Nantucket lighthouses are not open to the public, but being right in town many visitors enjoy a stroll around the grounds of Brant Point.
This is actually the 2nd oldest lighthouse in US and probably one of the most photographed. It is beautiful day and night. A must see! We walked to several times while there simply because we loved the tranquility surrounding it. Also the Nantucket wild roses were in bloom. Simply breathtaking!
This is the oldest lighthouse in the U.S. I was told. It was beautiful to photograph at night. We stayed at Century House bed and breakfast on Cliff Road and they recommended seeing it at sunset. It was absolutely breathtaking.
This is one of three lighthouses on the island, the smallest of the three, but the easiest to access. If you're on the island on July 4th, this is the place to be to watch the fireworks. Grab a waffle-cone ice cream from the nearby shop, and watch the glorious show for hours!
Near to the town of Nantucket and yet so far away!

Brant Point Light is a small harbor light that each and every vessel entering Nantucket passes. The red light is visible during low light situations. In a fog, the fog horn is quite audible.
Sometimes when I go to Brant Point Light, there is a wedding, or, invididuals arrive by horse and buggy or antique vehicles to take wedding photographs.
Even if no one else is there, it is a place where I like to walk along the shore and see what the tides have deposited. From this location, I can look back to Nantucket Town for great photographs, and, look out to the East Jetties and photograph vessels with the lighthouse in the foreground.
It is an excellent place to take photographs, beachcomb, or just listen to the tides come and go!
