Nestled cozily between Cape Cod and the Massachusetts South Shore, Buzzards Bay is a protected estuary situated on the southern end of the Cape Cod Canal. Buzzards Bay has long been home to some of the most sought-after waterfront destinations in New England. Whether you’re exploring the “mainland” areas of New Bedford, Marion and Wareham or wish to venture the Cape, Islands and beyond, Buzzards Bay is a wonderful home for your boat. In the warmer months, take a bike ride down the historic Cape Cod Canal or take advantages of the several public beaches on the Plymouth and Bristol county coasts. And if you’re traveling with young ones, the National Marine Life Center’s museum provides kid-friendly interactive lessons about how to help stranded marine animals.
