I think Brant Point Light Houseespecially when entering the harbor by boat is probably one of the most photographed light houses out there. You can also walk to it and be within 150' of all the boat traffic coming and going. Get your camera ready when you make the turn into the harbor.

This is my wife's favorite lighthouse in the world and it brings her such joy to visit it as often as she can. The views from here are beautiful and well worth the visit.

I'm a lighthouse afficionado, so being able to walk up to this one was one of the highlights of Nantucket for me. An easy walk from Straight Wharf, which takes you through a nice little area with nice houses. Brant Point is on a nice little beach with picturesque views. Definitely worth the walk.
