Destination guide

Neighborly living in Newburyport

There's nothing controversial about Newburyport. As you stroll down Pleasant Street and Merrimac, past the handsome redbrick row-houses and straight-laced silverware depots of yesteryear, you might happen upon smiling groups of residents chattering between the benches and flowerbeds, or find an ad hoc food market unfurling amidst the coffeeshops of the waterfront. And away from the homey New England chowder delis, there's even more. You could get a Newburyport vacation rental on the coast, where it's just a short boat ride across to Plum Island, or head out to whale-watch in the great Atlantic.

Things to do

Maritime heritage in Newburyport

The Newburyport vacation rentals on State Street and the Merrimac waterfront are the ones that will put you right at the beating heart of this old port city. The blocks there are peppered with top institutions for getting to grips with the regional heritage. Take the Cushing House Museum and Garden, itself on the National Register of Historic Places, filled with curious China vases and Dutch furnishings. Or delve into the Custom House Maritime Museum, where aged shipbuilding tools and nautical navigation equipment is on display.


Atlantic waters beckoning in Newburyport

Newburyport's enviable location on the edge of the beautiful MA coast has not gone unnoticed. Fishing charters and whale-watching offers come thick and fast around the harbors in the heart of the town. You should take one, if only to feel the fresh breezes of the Atlantic Ocean, and to glimpse the wild birds and natural beauty of the barrier islands that ring the shores here. You can also take cooking lessons to learn how to master that New England chowder, or stay for the Yankee Homecoming in midsummer, when military parades and fireworks erupt in the center.

Meanwhile, the south side of the city feathers out into the pine woods and creeks of the Maudslay State Park, where biking tracks rumble over wildflower meadows that bloom in spring, and manicured classical gardens are dressed in pretty laurel trees.
