Today, New Bedford’s working waterfront is considered America’s number one fishing port, supporting a bevy of commercial and recreational boats. New Bedford honors its storied past in its vibrant downtown area, which is teeming with museums, art galleries, diverse shops, restaurants, and cafes in historic buildings along cobblestone streets.

There’s always something to do in New Bedford, with the Buttonwood Park Zoo, Zeiterion Performing Arts Center, numerous parks, beaches, and recreational activities in town.
