Two of New England’s best kept secrets are the twin towns of Fairhaven and New Bedford, located on each side of New Bedford’s inner harbor. Both towns have a rich history dating back to the first settlers in the mid 17th century. New Bedford, once a major whaling port, remains one of New England’s largest fishing ports and the local businesses have benefited from recent waterfront renovations. Cobblestone streets, period street lighting, beautiful commercial buildings and former Captains’ homes all contribute to its charm. Other attractions include a nice selection of bars and restaurants as well as the world famous Whaling Museum. Across the harbor, Fairhaven was also once a major whaling port that, by 1838, rivaled Nantucket as the second largest whaling port. Today it is an attractive, charming New England village featuring historic architectural gems and one of the most acclaimed shipyards in the region located just 35 miles from Newport. During major storms, a massive hurricane barrier can be closed, creating one of the safest havens for large yachts in New England.
