Historical Adventures in the Spring

It’s springtime, and as we all know, it is time to kick off the most active time of the year! Luckily, being in a town like Westport makes enjoying the outdoors fun, easy, and extremely accessible. Westport residents have a plethora of events at their disposal for all ages. As an idyllic town for starting a family, there are events catered to all demographics, so check out some fun options below:

As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and what better way to kick off May than with a comedy show featuring a Massachusetts legend? For a hilarious comedic experience, be sure to get a ticket for Lenny Clarke at Whites of Westport at 66 State Road. Check out more details regarding this event here. Best known for both his role as Uncle Teddy on FX’s hit series, Rescue Me, and his thick Boston accent, Lenny Clarke’s show on May 4th will delight the whole family.

In order to keep both the flowers and people of this town blooming, Westport makes sure to give their residents the ability to stay active with many spring/summer running events. The 7th Annual Watuppa Trail Races will be taking place on May 19th and the whole family is encouraged to participate! The Samurai Sprint Mud Run takes place at the beginning of June and is definitely something that attracts a ton of local residents.

It is no surprise that Westport is the home to a great and rich history. It is so embedded in the historic culture of Massachusetts that is has its very own ‘Westport Historical Society’  whose main mission is “to engage the public in the exploration of the town’s rich history and culture and to encourage active participation in the preservation and interpretation of the past”.

 Westport is a fairly small town with a ton to offer. For a small town of roughly 16,000 people, there is a surprisingly rich history, which cements Westport’s status as one of the best places to live in Massachusetts.

Come take a visit for yourself if you are interested in moving here! Westport is just 7 miles west of New Bedford and 52 miles south of Boston. Take a drive down I-93 and see what all the hype is about; you might find out it is exactly what you need!
