Nice quaint area

We spent the day in Newburyport Old Town area. There are tons of shops and eateries. Area is very old, seems around early to mid 1800s and is a very pleasant day.

A very interesting mix of woods, bigger dirt roads, and mowed fields. Great view from the top of Old Town Hill where you can see the Atlantic and Plum Island. Some interesting trails along the salt marsh as well.

I have lived within a few miles of Old Town Hill for 15 years now, and I just discoved it a few weeks ago. This is an amazing open space, that is great for light hiking. And it is totally free. It is not far from Route 1 and 1A, and has ample free parking. It has nice flat area... More
