New Bedford Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 100 photos

New Bedford is an old port city on the southern coast of Massachusetts. Its primary attraction is the New Bedford Waling National Historic Park, which was created in 1996 to preserve the history of the whaling industry in New England. While much of the city has seen better days, the whaling historic park area is worth visiting if you like history. It has a good museum and a number of historic buildings and boats.

    What else did you do? I'd like to find the old 40's diner I was in years ago. Seems like there are other things I should know about if I go back.
