Newburyport is among the smallest cities in the state, and is felt by its residents to be among the most beautiful, retaining towns in New England. Many residents of the heavily residential community commute daily to Boston, which is 35 miles of the Town. Residents are proud of the fact that many families have lived in the city for generations, and equally proud of the fact that the city welcomes newcomers and the new ideas they bring.
The economy of Newburyport is diverse, ranging from boutique retail space in the historic downtown to an industrial park which supports businesses in the financial, professional services, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical sectors. Newburyport boasts a highly-educated workforce, supportive government, and business infrastructure. It also has a strong tourist industry.
Located on the central waterfront on the Merrimack River, the Townâ€™s boardwalk is beloved for many reasons, including its intimate human scale and the variety of moods and spaces available for all to enjoy - striking views of the active riverfront, estuary and ocean, picnic and seating areas, open green space, brick plazas, memorials, a stage for outdoor concerts, a glimpse of the City's commercial fishing heritage, and more. Its old fire station currently houses a theatre and restaurant for both visitors and residents.
