New Bedford Vacation Packages
New Bedford, in Eastern Massachusetts, is a city that about 95,000 people call home.
Boston, the state capital, is located about 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the north of New Bedford, while Newport is 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest.
The historical fortifications in the New Bedford area are worth a couple of hours of exploration for those with a keen interest in conflict and warfare. Spend an hour or two at the Fort Taber, and check the signs or plaques to learn about what life was like here in the early days.
The main zoo in the region, Buttonwood Park Zoo, is a great location to take the entire family for an exciting morning watching native animals. If you don’t have much time, stop by the information counter and grab a map so you don’t miss any of the key exhibits.
Before you say goodbye to New Bedford, stop by the Seamen's Bethel and the Old Third District Courthouse; just two more of the sights which help make this city such a great vacation choice.
