When You Visit

If you are coming a distance, why not plan to spend a day in the history-rich New Bedford area. Here are a few suggestions to check out: Haskell Public Garden is 10 minutes away. Once the nursery home and gardens of our old friend Allen Haskell, it is now a lovely public garden open year round and there is no entrance fee!

The Acushnet River Antique Center is a regular haunt…we find some pretty cool garden artifacts here. The South Coast has a vibrant artist community with Open Studio tours. Catch the Art Drive Tour on Aug. 4-6, 2023 and the South Coast Open Studio Tour Aug. 19-20, 2023. Note: We’re open 9-1 on Saturdays, so start your visit with us.

Historic downtown New Bedford is home to the impressive Whaling Museum, plus some great little shops and restaurants. Check out The Drawing Room, which features unique gifts, wine and local art. Our restaurant go to’s are The Black Whale on the waterfront, Union Flats,  Cultivator Shoals, DNB Burgers and The Pour Farm Tavern to name a few.

If you want to get in a nice brisk hike, Fort Taber at the city’s southernmost tip, offers walks with views of Buzzards Bay. Nearby are 2 eating establishments Cisco Brewery and The Dough Company.

Check establishments websites for current hours.


  1. Thank you so much for providing this additional area information! I make a one hour plus drive down which I really enjoy but I have often thought that I should make a day of it! Thank you so much.

  2. Thank you. I live here and am going to use it with grand kids visiting….at least some of it.

  3. I have visited you many times over the years, from Philadelphia. This is super helpful. Can’t wait to see some of the sites and eat some good local food.
