Newburyport is a historic seaport with rich Maritime heritage located in Essex County of Massachusetts, just 35 miles northeast of Boston. Residents and visitors alike enjoy all of the comforts and amenities of a coastal lifestyle, from a wide range of first class restaurants and shopping to national attractions and an avid boating community.
There is plenty to do in Newburyport, and you may want to start off your trip with a visit to Maudslay State Park and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge – both are highly ranked by the National Park Service. Take a stroll in the 19th century gardens at Maudslay State Park, which has endless miles of trails for walking, biking, and horseback riding. There are plenty of nice spots throughout the meadows and trees for enjoying a picnic among nature. Parker River offers gentle terrain with dunes, shrubs and freshwater marshes, and visitors can walk alongside boardwalks to the ocean, sign up for an education course, and go bird watching. If you enjoy shopping and dining, purchase a Newburyport VIP Card and take advantage of great discounts at local restaurants and shops, then end your day with a tasty craft beer at the Newburyport Brewing Company. Waterfront Park is the site of many Newburyport events, including the Riverfront Music Festival and Newburyport’s Yankee Homecoming.
One popular day trip is nearby Plum Island, a barrier island located off the northeast coast of Massachusetts, just north of Cape Ann. It’s only a 17-minute drive and is located just seven miles away. Other nearby towns that make for great day trips are the summer resort town of Salisbury, the coastal city of Newbury, and Amesbury, which is located across the way on the left bank of the Merrimack River.
Newburyport has become a very desirable place to live, and there are many great neighborhoods where you can rent a home or condo during your visit. The downtown area is very convenient for walking to festivals, restaurants and shops, as well as the public docks to listen to live music. There are many nice homes in the picturesque Historic District, and High Street is where many sites in town are located, from the hospital to the seafood market and grocery store.
The Clipper City Trail is a 1.1-mile path that is open to runners, bikers and pedestrians, and it runs from the MBTA to the Merrimack River shoreline near downtown, making it easy to get to various attractions. There is also the MBTA Commuter Rail, which provides daily train service between Newburyport and Boston, and the MVRTA (Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority), which provides bus service between the towns of Amesbury, Newburyport and Salisbury.
