New Bedford impressed us quite a bit. After the bustle of Newport with its many-mansion walks this tiny town was more a town and less a tourist destination. It has lots of eateries and shops, but clearly it's a livable place with townsfolks. We like that more than ogling over the "lifestyles of the rich and famous."
