Located about forty-five minutes from Boston where the Merrimack River meets the vast Atlantic, historic Newburyport is a picturesque seaport with a bustling downtown, lively waterfront and a charming mix of classical and contemporary architecture. With a population of about 17,000 and landmass of 9.5 miles, Newburyport is small city with great amenities including a dynamic arts community, hospital, skating rink, public boat launch, city docks, beaches and extensive culinary options from local seafood to ethnic cuisines. Visitors and residents alike enjoy walking along the Peter J. Matthews Memorial Boardwalk.
