The apartments at Wamsutta Place are easily accessible. Situated near the intersection of I-195 and Route 18. The site is just minutes from the New Bedford Regional Airport and many water ferries serve the surrounding area as well as the Cape, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

Located approximately 30 minutes from Providence, RI and 50 minutes from Boston, Wamsutta Place offers a great quality of life in a historic seaside community.

New Bedford is an authentic seaport city rich in history, culture and architecture. Known as the whaling capital of the world during the 19th century, New Bedford was later home to many textile mills which produced some of the world's finest cloth and linen goods.

Wamsutta was one of the more prominent companies in the area and produced world famous "Percale" sheets (similar versions of which are still produced today).

Today, New Bedford is fast becoming a thriving arts community with the proliferation of new artists, art galleries and an art museum. From literature to painting, music and many other forms of art, New Bedford is undergoing a cultural renaissance. Over the past decade, the city has seen an increasing tourist population and the addition of new restaurants, bistros and artisan shops.

Several new cultural activities, festivals, tours and events continually add excitement to this vibrant community. New Bedford is home to well maintained city parks, museums, beaches, its own zoo and the New Bedford Whaling National Park is located in historic downtown. New Bedford is recognized as one of the leading fishing ports in the United States and is especially known for its excellent seafood restaurants.
