What locals are saying

"…Nowhere in all America will you find more patrician-like houses; parks and gardens more opulent, than in New Bedford." (-Herman Melville)

The rest of Melville's description of New Bedford were not as kind, perhaps because he wrote about the city during a time when it was largely known for its whaling industry and was sparsely populated. Today, the city of New Bedford boasts a population of approximately 100,000, and while it remains a famed whaling era seaport, it is now the number one fishing port in the United States.

New Bedford, MA is a charming sea town decorated with beautiful coastlines, public parks, and beaches
