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.

DURATION: 3 nights, 2 days
MILES: apprx. 120 miles
ROUTE: For the most part I used the East Coast Greenway but there are some parts that I either got lost or it wasn't complete so I improvised instead.
