"Newburyport is Quaint in a Modern Sort of Way" Newburyport by TempNomad

Newburyport Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 59 photos

If you want cute ice cream shops, Newburyport has them...want to buy nautical souvenirs? They're here, too. Hip coffee shops, clam chowder, thick steaks.....all here. A lovely boardwalk and pier. Local theatre, amazing homes with widows walks and views to the ocean....it's all here!

Check out www.newburyportchamber.org for lots of useful information.
Newburyport is a great option for a day trip...you can rent water equipment, or take a boat ride, or visit the many historic sites.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very cute, lots of shopping and restaurant options, culture
  • Cons:A lot of people, maybe too cute, higher prices than some smaller places
  • In a nutshell:worth a look-see!

    I made a sweep through the town when I was up that way and thought the homes were quite beautiful.

    I love to just walk around too! It's the best way to see everything up close and personal!

    Right on the money...very cute, but almost "Disney does New England". Revitalization funds all came at once. But I STILL want to live there!
