Chick-lit queen Elin Hilderbrand’s new book, The Identicals, about two sisters isolated on two different islands is going to make you want to pack your bags, grab your girls, and start debating which you prefer: Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard. If you’re more of the Vineyard persuasion, book a stay at Summercamp, a cheery boutique hotel in Oak Bluffs. It’s full of perks that will take you right back to your actual summer camp days: a Camp Canteen with classic snacks; a game room with vintage games, a movie screen, Twister, and ping pong; and giant porches and balconies with harbor views and rocking chairs (because you’re not campers anymore). More into Nantucket? Make yourself at home at the Greydon House, a super low-key hotel designed to reflect the island’s vibes (think lots of nautical details). No matter which island you choose, take advantage of the amazing restaurants, top-notch shopping, pristine beaches, and the opportunity to enjoy it all with your BFFs.
