What to Do

First Congregational Church Tower

What may be the best view of Nantucket Harbor might only cost you a couple of bucks and a bit of exertion.

Climb the 94 steps of the First Congregational Church, past historic church photos and you will reach the top of the 120-foot bell tower.
Church guides say the first words visitors usually express is "Wow!"

On a clear day you can see a long way.

Looking to the north, Nantucket Sound stretches before you and you might even make out the shore of Cape Cod. Looking down over the harbor you will see the comings and goings of more than 1,000 boats of every shape and description.

The First Congregational Church is also home to an annual Blueberry Festival that is held in early August.
