A Lovely Afternoon in Newburyport and Plum Island

Last weekend I visited Newburyport and Plum Island.  I had never been to either and I (again) had some time to kill on a day I was seeing a private practice client.  So off I went.  It was another beautiful fall day and it was nice just to be outside walking around.

The downtown area is so cute.  There are tons of great shops and I even started my Christmas shopping!

There are flower boxes everywhere and it just added so much charm to the town.

You can actually eat in the top of this lighthouse.  I can't even imagine how expensive it is but hopefully the gorgeous views make it worth it.

After walking around the shops in Newburyport I made my way over to Plum Island.  I wasn't quite sure what to expect but it was a beautiful drive along the ocean and I basically just drove until I came to the beach. 

I love all the paths along the beach.  I saw other ones online but couldn't find them once I was there so I just settled for these!

The Plum Island Lighthouse was actually open for tours but the line was way to long for me to wait.  I was fine with just checking it out quickly and then I was on my way.  I drove back along the ocean and made my way home.  It was such a beautiful day for a ride!  I had such a nice afternoon and realized I need to take advantage of sightseeing by myself more often!

So where should I go next?


  1. I've never been to either place but now MUST go to both :)

  2. I like seeing the photos of these places....I really like those path pics that you settled for, beautiful

  3. I love that area. You go to such fun places. I vote that next you hang out in Portsmouth NH for a day :)

  4. Gorgeous photos, as always. If I could handle New England winters, I think I would love to live up there. I love those brick row homes, you're right, so much charm!

    You started Christmas shopping?!?!
