Newburyport is located in Essex County, Massachusetts. The city is in northern Massachusetts and is bordered by Amesbury, Salisbury, West Newbury and Newbury. Newburyport lies along the northern banks of the Merrimack River. Newburyport is served by Interstate 95 and the Newburyport Turnpike, also known as Route 1. You can also access the city via the MBTA Commuter Rail’s Newburyport stop. While I suggest using Boston Logan’s Airport if you are flying into town, Newburyport has its own small airfield located near the Joppa Flats Education Center and Wildlife Sanctuary.
A historic seaport with a vibrant tourism industry, Newburyport includes part of Plum Island. A Coast Guard station oversees boating activity, especially in the swift tidal currents of the Merrimack River. Newburyport is also home to Maudsley State Park and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. This bustling tourist town hosts the annual Yankee Homecoming Festival and Waterfront Concert Series. Attracting people to the area are a myriad of shops and restaurants including the outdoor bar and restaurant Michaels, Newburyport Brewing Company and the Black Cow Restaurant situated directly on the Merrimack River.
Newburyport has its own District Court located at 188 State Street and Superior Court located on the main road – High Street. If, however, you need to appear for purposes of probate, the Essex Probate Court has two locations in Salem and Lawrence.
