The New Bedford Travel Guide, produced and sponsored by Slocum Design Studio of Dartmouth, MA, was recently released for Summer/Fall 2012. The first-edition guide is available in print and on the web. Visitors and residents alike can grab a free copy at local businesses, or request a free print or digital copy at nbtravelguide.com. The guide aims to help travelers and locals discover the best-kept secrets of New Bedford and the South Coast.
Both the print and electronic versions of the guide feature the best beaches, restaurants, things to do and more in the towns of Acushnet, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Marion, Mattapoisett, Wareham, Westport and, of course, New Bedford. Senator Mark Montigny and New Bedford’s mayor, Jon Mitchell, both reveal their favorite parts of the area in the guide. “On this corner of Buzzards Bay ocean breezes remind you that the best stuff in life is free,” says Montigny. “The seafaring tradition continues with the city getting a nod as one of Yachting’s 2012 Best Towns.”
New Bedford Travel Guide includes profiles of the nine featured South Coast towns, an event and festival calendar, a handy beach handbook, and so much more. From where to shop to where to stay in the area, the site has its visitors covered with an in-depth listening of area businesses. Area businesses interested in learning more or getting listed on the website or in future editions of the print guide can find more information on nbtravelguide.com.
