Newburyport, MA - 10 best things to do
Imagine strolling the boardwalk, browsing in eclectic shops, checking out beautiful historic architecture and enjoying the island life – all in one place! It's a dream made possible in Newburyport.
Located on the Merrimac River just 35 miles north of Boston, Newburyport has a bit of everything to offer visitors and residents alike. Visitors will want to stay in the city’s many charming B&Bs while residents enjoy all the amenities the city has to offer, including top-ranked schools and easy access to Anna Jacques Hospital. Newburyport is also popular for recreational boating and an official Coast Guard city. Just a short 15 minutes cruse down the Merrimac brings you to the Atlantic ocean with some of the best fishing and sailing around.
From its roots as a shipbuilding seaport, Newburyport has grown into a hip urban destination with plenty of idyllic charm. While downtown, you’ll want to join those walking the boardwalk and taking in the breathtaking view of the river. You’ll find a little something for everyone (and even yourself) in the local shops and unique art galleries. You’ll love dining al fresco in the city’s diverse restaurants and taking in the many outdoor concerts and festivals.
Just a mile away you’ll find a beach oasis on Plum Island. The barrier island offers a taste of “island life” within the city limits. Plum Island is perfect for sunbathing in the summer, but also for birdwatching and enjoying nature in every season.
The city’s 480-acre Maudslay State Park and many other trails provide plenty of ways to enjoy nature. All you have to do is step outside your door to enjoy year round outdoor activities, from walking and biking to cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
Downtown Newburyport has maintained its charm by preserving the city’s many old buildings and has a state designated cultural district. You’ll feel like you’re walking back in time as you wander the brick-lined neighborhoods, taking in all the Federalist and Victorian architecture.
But Newburyport is a forward-thinking city, too. The industrial park is home to 80 businesses and growing. Companies large and small have found Newburyport to be the perfect place, especially with easy access to major routes like 95 and 495 and a close-proximity to Boston.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect day-trip or for your new home, Newburyport is it.

Gurneys Montauk Resort & Seawater Spa
Since welcoming our first guests 90 years ago, Gurney’s has remained one of New York’s finest travel destinations. As you walk the grounds, you can sense the history—though we have certainly evolved through the decades! In 1926, Maude Gurney opened the property as an inn. In the early 1950s, Gurney’s was a modest, 20-unit summer hotel similar to many others dotting the South Fork of Long Island. In 1956, it was purchased by restaurant owner Nick Monte, who would ultimately transform it into a celebrated resort: he added buildings and facilities, began operating Gurney’s year-round in the 1960s, and opened the spa in 1979.
In 2013, under new ownership, Gurney’s began a multi-phase, multi-year refresh. In 2014, we unveiled 38 renovated oceanfront rooms as well as a new indoor seawater pool. The following year, we began a partnership with LDV Hospitality, including the opening of five new outlets: Scarpetta Beach, Tillie’s, Corso, The Beach Club, and The Regent Cocktail Club. In 2016, we started managing and renovating the property next door, the Panoramic View Resort, as Gurney’s Residences.
