Feeling Daffy?

Sometimes you just need a weekend away with your girlfriends and I have a great idea for an easy weekend trip that's sure to get you in the mood for spring! Head to Nantucket for the 37th annual Daffodil Festival Weekend April 29 - May 1. Millions of daffodils bloom around the island and to celebrate these beautiful flowers and the arrival of spring there are parades, picnics and tons of silly fun! A daffy hat pageant, a daffy dog parade, and an antique car parade ending in a daffodil tailgate picnic in 'Sconset are just some of the weekend activities.

Here's my game plan for the perfect day! Grab some breakfast in town at Fog Island then walk to Children's Beach for the Daffy Hat contest, be sure to wear something yellow! Then head back to Main Street to admire the antique cars and be sure to stay after the parade departs for the Daffy Dogs! Jump in your car and drive out to 'Sconset for the tailgate picnic from 1-3, parade participants will be handing out tasty treats to everyone. Spend a little time driving around the island to see all the beautiful flowers and perhaps fit in a little shopping. End a great day with a delicious dinner at American Seasons and a cocktail at The Boarding House. It's sure to be a weekend filled with lots of laughs and lots of beautiful flowers!
