Nantucket Information
Some information about Nantucket from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Nov 3, 2003, 21:06

Nantucket is an island south of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, formed of glacial moraine. Together with the small islands of Tuckernuck and Muskeget, it constitutes the town of Nantucket, Massachusetts and the coextensive Nantucket County. It was formerly the leading whaling port in the world. Although now primarily a tourist destination, it still houses a small fishing industry. The village of Surfside on Nantucket is the southernmost settlement in Massachusetts.
