Miles of Beaches
At The Condominiums at The Kelley School, everything Newburyport has to offer is at your doorstep. The Clipper Heritage Trail for walking and biking, the central waterfront with shops and restaurants and the MBTA Commuter Rail to Boston are all a short walk away. Active year round with festivals, live music and entertainment, shopping and dining and The Farmer's Market at the Tannery Marketplace, Downtown Newburyport is buzzing with activity during all of New England's four seasons.
Plum Island and the Merrimack River offer endless opportunities nearby for boating, kayaking, bird watching or relaxing at the beach while numerous marinas, yacht clubs, and charter facilities make the area a boater’s paradise. A short drive to the city life in Boston or to the mountains of New Hampshire, Newburyport is your place to call home. Live here. Go Anywhere.
Plum Island is just a 10-minute drive down the Plum Island Turnpike past Mass Audubon's Joppa Flats Education Center. This 11-mile long island off the shore of Newburyport offers gorgeous sandy beaches ideal for such leisurely pursuits as swimming, sunbathing, and picnicking. On the island, the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge is home to more than 800 species of birds, plants and animals. Additionally, at the southern tip of Plum Island is Sandy Point State Reservation, a 77-acre park that is perfect for walking, beachcombing, fishing and birding.
