Whaling City Expeditions whisks passengers out onto the storied waters of New Bedford Harbor to explore a port that has seen the departures and returns of ships and their sailors for more than 250 years. Wielding more than a decade's worth of experience, Captain Jeff Pontiff and his team steer boats out into the picturesque waters. In the evenings, step onboard for a sunset cruise, a BYOB excursion where passengers can watch the sun dip below Palmer Island lighthouse and place bets on the exact time of sunset with the other passengers.

A lifelong entrepreneur with a green thumb, Dave Neilson transformed Coastal Vineyards from an idea to a reality in 2004. Joined by his wife Linda, family, and friends, Dave continues to tend to his small but continually expanding winery, situated along southeastern New England's lengthy coastal wine trail. Like a shadow cast by Godzilla, the property's thriving vineyards cover eight acres, producing 12 varietals including chardonnay, pinot gris, riesling, and merlot.
No matter the bottle, Dave's goal remains consistent: to lure every ounce of fruity zest from each varietal, specifically by blending flavors to create unique bouquets. To accomplish this, Coastal Vineyards utilizes a combination of stainless steel and oak barrels to ensure it consistently serves up a diverse repertoire of complex flavors, which can be bought or tested in the facility's tasting room when it swings open its doors on the weekends.
Thanks to lines such as Royal Flemish and Crown Milano, the city of New Bedford rightfully earned the nickname ?Art Glass Headquarters of the Country? by the late 19th century. With 7,000 objects to its name, The New Bedford Museum of Glass not only celebrates the area?s rich heritage, but also spans more than 3,000 years of worldwide glassmaking history. Through its permanent collection and rotating exhibits, the museum highlights everything from Victorian glass syrup bottles to 19th-century glass cigar holders. Our Nation?s Heritage in Glass encompasses 500-plus pieces of American-themed glass, including Bicentennial glass and the glass teeth George Washington wore in battle. Along with its rich displays, the museum?s in-house libraries delves deeper into global glassmaking with more than 8,000 volumes in 10 languages.
