New Bedford, Massachusetts, is New England's best place to dive into whaling history. Home to the New Bedford Whaling Museum and the 13-block New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, "The City that Lit the World" is a fascinating destination not only for its past but for its 20th-century resurgence as America's most profitable commercial fishing port.

I'll introduce you to the Whaling City on this photo tour and help you find a New Bedford hotel. Head there this weekend for the Moby-Dick Marathon!
