New Bedford Familiarization Tour

by Jenny Lee Paiva

I had the amazing opportunity to attend the “FAM Tour” event hosted by The New Bedford Chamber of Commerce.

The NB LINE Charter buses provided shuttle service from the National Park to all our destinations!  I spent the day with great people who are passionate about the South Coast and understand the value of culture and education to enrich their lives.  Everyone who attended had something to share about the South Coast with both locals and tourists!

Special thanks to Dagny Ashley, Director of Tourism, for leading our tour with a fun and enthusiastic attitude and to all the volunteers who’s passions and time make these museums, theaters, and attractions available for an amazing experience!

Above all-I realized the deep roots that keep the New Bedford community united in the spirit of it’s history!
