Ipswich Travel Guide

Famous for its clams, Ipswich is a picturesque coastal town in Massachusetts. The vibrant city is packed with a variety of activities for all ages to enjoy: from relaxing on the beach and wine-tasting to hiking and visiting farms. While seafood is the best cuisine in town, there are also pubs, cafés and fine dining restaurants for the evening. Remember to try the apple cider donuts when in Ipswich -- they're a local delicacy!

Things to Do in Ipswich

Top things to do in Ipswich include exploring at Sandy Point State Reservation -- the perfect place for hiking as well as fishing and beachcombing along the coast. If you're looking to relax on the warm sands for a day, head to Crane Beach where the white shores and blue water are perfect to work on your tan or splash around with friends. For something more active, head to Appleton Farms. The hiking trails here boast stunning natural scenery and animals, as well as being home to one of the oldest operating farms in the United States.

If you're visiting in the summer, don't miss out on Russell Orchards, where guests can go fruit picking and sample the local wines.
