About these ratings

Nantucket's iconic Brant Point Light is said to be the country's second oldest lighthouse by some aficionados. While this superlative isn't completely true -- the current tower dates to 1901, while the station has had a lighthouse since 1746 -- the attraction remains a popular spot to view Nantucket Town's harbor.

You can't go inside Brant Point -- it's still an active post used by the U.S. Coast Guard -- but there's still a lot to see here. The beach of the same name is a picturesque place to take a breather and watch the boats float by the harbor. One TripAdvisor user likes the beach for quite a different reason: "Our guide pointed out the nearby beach plums growing wild at the entrance to the beach. We were lucky enough to find a few ripe ones."

You can find the Brant Point Light right off of Easton Street in Nantucket Town. Its grounds are free to roam year-round.
