Newburyport is very quiet and laid back. We have a historic market area that provides more of a variety especially in the summer where we have several festivals. It is nice to be within walking distance from downtown so I have the best of both worlds. The best thing about living in Newburyport is that we have a commuter rail that allows me to get to other cities very quickly. It's nice to have alternatives transportation options.
We have great places for music fans including The Grog which has blues music and very good food options. We also have very nice parks and the city is very clean. We are constantly developing the area, but we don't have many unique shopping centers. We have the typical places such as Walmart and Target nearby, but I can't wait until we get more shopping options. The schools are okay, but we have several options to choose from including public and private.
