Experience historic coastal living with a vacation home in Ipswich

Fresh seafood and chowder
New England is famous for its clam chowder. Pronounced "chowda" by the locals, this traditional creamy soup is eaten topped with crunchy oyster crackers.
Also try the steamers, soft-shelled clams cooked in wine and butter. Find them on the menu of almost any seafood restaurant, or pick some up at the fish market and prepare them yourself in the kitchen of your vacation home.
Museum and historic districts
Soak in the history by taking a walking tour of historic Ipswich. View immaculately preserved homes built by the Puritan settlers in the 1600s, as well examples of Federalist and Victorian architecture.
Learn about life in colonial New England at the Ipswich Museum, located in the historic Heard House, built in 1795. Exhibits include antiques, paintings, and other artifacts from Ipswich's rich past.
