Newbury, with a population of less than 7,000 on 26 square miles, is ideal for those who want quiet and seclusion. Plum Island in Newbury offers miles of unspoiled beaches.
Set along the Merrimack River, West Newbury is also a sparsely populated town which has maintained a tranquil and rural atmosphere despite its accessibility to Boston via I-95. Once a farming community, its heritage is still evident in the charming older farmhouses that can still be found in the area.
The population of Newbury is about 6,700 and the distance to Boston is 34 miles.
