New Bedford Is One Of New England’s Most Secret Places

One of the leading travel guides has listed New Bedford as one of the top 7 secret places that travelers should take advantage of while visiting New England.  

It advises that in addition to the beaches of Cape Cod, The Green Mountains of Vermont, and the history of Boston, a visit to “The Whaling City” should be on the agenda.   New Bedford was once the largest whaling port in the world, and in fact it still is a major east coast fishing port.

So as travellers hurry to Cape Cod, they miss the seafaring history here.  New Bedford’s entire waterfront district is on the National Register Of Historic Places and is the home of the New Bedford Whaling Museum.  There is also the Seamen’s Bethel, the maritime church built in 1832.

The chapel was immortalized as the “Whaleman’s Chapel” by Herman Melville in Moby Dick.   Add to that the elegant whaling captains mansions and the beauty of Fort Taber, a stop in New Bedford is well worth a delay in getting to nearby Cape Cod and the other “less secret” New England destinations. .
