For many of us in the Boston area, summer getaways typically mean a trip to Cape Cod. While the Cape is still a summer favorite, this weekend, I (Katie) decided to shake things up a bit. I spent the weekend with friends in Newburyport, MA, a picture perfect little town on the shore about an hour north of Boston. Settled in the 1600’s, Newburyport is not only beautiful, but also full of great American history. We were lucky enough to be in town for the last weekend of Yankee Homecoming – a week-long celebration that includes nightly concerts, street performers and vendors and an all-round fun, energetic atmosphere.
