You might be all about that pumpkin spice this time of year, but it's more likely you're all about that bass. Meghan Trainor turned the music industry on its head when her single "All About That Bass" completely exploded all over the Internet and airwaves. Her love-yourselves-in-all-shapes-and-sizes-inside-and-out message has struck a chord with fans and is helping change the conversation surrounding women, music, and the media. Though her debut album's release date has yet to be revealed, she seems far from becoming a "one hit wonder."

The Nantucket native grew up surrounded by the sea and stunning landscapes, so it's no wonder her music is so vibrant and full of energy. Her small island upbringing influenced her artistic side, as she started writing songs at the age of 11 and was in a band with her family. They performed in local holes-in-the-wall like The Muse and The Chicken Box.

But Meghan Trainor isn't the only reason we should be thankful for Nantucket. Let's take a look at some of the best reasons to visit, tip our hats, and recognize this little New England island. Enjoy!
