Newburyport is known throughout New England as a community of charm and beauty. One of the things that makes Newburyport so special is the ambiance of downtown. Each summer the Chamber of Commerce adorns each light post with colorful hanging baskets. Shopkeepers and building owners throughout the downtown complement these baskets with colorful and creative window boxes, filled with flowers, herbs, vines and other greenery. These displays have become a signature of Newburyport's downtown.


Inn Street


Inn Street in downtown Newburyport, one of the port’s earliest streets, was a narrow crowded little pathway full of small wooden buildings. In 1975, the Inn Street Mall was constructed as part of the Urban Renewal Program. The successful conversion was awarded a citation for design excellence by the Boston Society of Architects in 1984.


Today you can stroll in and out of the fine shops lining the historic brick path. There is everything from historical artwork and maps to clothing and home décor. You will find interesting antiques and fine art, along with imported specialties, clothing, sweets and more.




In nearby Market Square, residents burned tea in 1773 - before the more famous Boston Tea Party - to protest British taxes. Today across from the Firehouse Center, the open space of the “Bullnose” welcomes strollers to the heart of the city. Market Square, State Street, Pleasant Street, Merrimac Landing and adjoining side streets feature a variety of boutiques, banks, bookstores, import shops, salons, cafés and food shops. Enjoy the constant surprises.


The Tannery Marketplace


A short walk up Water Street from downtown brings you to The Tannery Marketplace, a restored complex of old leather mill buildings now housing a variety of shops, services and eateries.
