Newburyport can be described by some general terms that fit at least a dozen other regional spots. The architecture is beautiful; there is a maritime history and the town is in great shape. But the downtown area is shaped by and for tourists. Buildings are obscured by the throngs of humanity. Parking is a blood sport. Advice to anyone who wanted to go would be to arrive far off season or to stroll the streets between 5 am and 7. It is more more resort than village. In short, Newburyport is a "Black Dog" town.
