Nantucket Island, Massachusetts
This is the little reason to travel to New England this summer. The Boston Pops and their annual Nantucket concert that culminates in a famous fireworks presentation. If you're into a lighter shade of orchestra music you're a probably familiar without he Pops, and this is your chance to get intimate with them. This is the 17th annual version of this event, which has been rated as Nantucket's "Best Summer Event" for 16 years in a row by readers of the local papers.
It's summer time so this is going to be a classy event. Now is not the time to skimp on what you're drinking. In fat you really need to bring two wines to the this event, a cool, rich Chardonnay for the Pops, and a dazzlingly bright and juicy Pinot Noir for the fireworks show. While this is old money, something new world is now acceptable, just make sure it's from the Sonoma Coast, the true Sonoma Coast please.
