Where To Go And What To Wear In Nantucket On New Year’s Eve

After all, this is the time of year to toast! So Nantucket has put together a four day festival (December 29, 2012 – January 1, 2013) with the main event being The New Year’s Eve Gatsby Ball at The Nantucket Hotel, Grand Ballroom, 77 Easton Street 9:00pm-1:00pm.
