Nantucket: Better Known as "The Grey Lady"

It's live from the Grey Lady this week, and Bonnie is buzzing around the island of Nantucket. It's 33 miles from Cape Cod, and there's much activity going on here!

This week starts off with the 22nd annual Nantucket Film Festival, June 21st through the 26th. The festival features over 70 films from all over the world, with many of the screenwriters, directors and actors on island to talk about the films. Check it out at www.nantucketfilmfestival.org.

On Saturday June 24th at 10 am, there is an amazing charity event for A Safe Place. It's a fundraiser event in which men walk in women's shoes to raise awareness about violence against women. It's called "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" - are you man enough? It should be quite an event!

There's an abundance of museums on island worth exploring. It's a great activity for all ages. There's the Nantucket Whaling Museum, The Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum, The Nantucket Life-saving Museum, and the Maria Mitchell Association.

One classic feature of Nantucket's landscape are the many beautiful and historical lighthouses to explore, and there are tours of the oldest house on island, which was built in 1686. It's just a fascinating place!

There are over 82 miles of pristine beaches on the island. With shells and sand and wave action that varies from one side of the island to the other, you're in for some breathtaking views.

Dress it up, or down - there are beaches all over town! Dress it up, or down - there are beaches all over the island!

The island is only 14 miles long by 3.5 miles wide, but there is so much to see! Thirty-five miles of bike paths cover the island to give you the opportunity to get up close and personal with nature, see the beauty of the island, and keep the traffic level down. I highly recommend it!

You're sure to see window boxes full of flowers on your bike ride. You're sure to see window boxes full of flowers on your bike ride.

There are so many farms developing on the island that it's becoming a sustainable island. The food is so fresh and delicious. The farm tour at Bartlett's Farm enables you to pick your own strawberries and tomatoes. What fun!

On the island, there are hundreds of artists who reside here year round. Due to their presence, ACK has developed The Nantucket Artist's Association. During the summer there are exhibitions weekly. Local galleries and antique dealers are willing to share some of Nantucket's richest history through their beautiful objects of art.

Always a beautiful display of local talent at the Artists Association of Nantucket. Always a beautiful display of local talent at the Artists Association of Nantucket.
