Fall River, Westport Point, South Dartmouth & New Bedford, MA Professional Review and Guide

"This itinerary will take you into a quiet corner of the southern shore that tourists who stick to the main roads will never see. You will drive on some meandering country roads, mostly unnumbered and sometimes even unnamed, past dune-lined beaches, harbors filled with yachts, and meadows lined with rock walls. Then your route dives into the historic section of the former capital of whaling, where you can follow the Moby Dick Trail and climb aboard a half-model of a whaling ship, or even take a cruise to spot real whales.

Many people heading for the Cape from New York City or Connecticut speed right by, missing this lovely section of Massachusetts. A glance at the map will show you that the region is very compact, so it does not matter much whether you begin exploring it in Fall River, where a tour of the World War II battleship USS Massachusetts awaits, or in the historic district of New Bedford. This eTrail contains everything you need to getaway for a quick daytrip or a long weekend jaunt. A route map is included and as are suggestions for the best things to do, places to eat, and places to stay."
