If anyone is looking for an interesting place to take a day trip to, Newburyport would be a good choice. There are many interesting sights to see, a number of good restaurants (breakfast, lunch, & dinner) in all price ranges, and good places to sit & have coffee, buy ice cream, baked goods, etc. There are a number of clothing & souvenir stores, and the like. The down town area is very walkable and there are beautiful restored old buildings. Newburyport is an easy drive up (or down) Rt. 95 and the ride into the city center is not long. There are fabulous big old homes along the road to downtown. Newburyport was something in its heyday and still is.
