The North Shore of Massachusetts boasts more than a dozen historic coastal villages, each with its own charms and attractions. Take a day or two to explore what lies beyond the big city. You may be surprised at what you find. Just 30 miles northeast of Boston, Ipswich is the perfect destination for history buffs and nature devotees alike. Amos A.
It has been a hard 18 months for Ipswich's high street and even out-of-town retailers — but there are some exciting names coming to the town in the near future.

Occupying the iconic former post office on the Cornhill, the Botanist will bring a vibrant new drinking experience to the town centre. The chain is renowned for its quirky cocktails and hanging kebabs, with "secret garden" interiors sure to make people wow.
It is hoped the bar will be ready for a pre-Christmas opening, with an initial target of September set earlier this year. A move to the town has yet to be confirmed, although the popular Scottish brewers and pub owners have applied for an alcohol licence on the Ipswich Waterfront. If successful in their applications, the pub would occupy a unit on the ground floor of the Winerack building.
A new "dining sector" is definitely on the cards in Ipswich with the arrival of a street food restaurant in the former Little Waitrose unit. The coffee shop in Queen Street has been on the cards for a while now, with "coming soon" s stuck on the windows of the former Mambos restaurant. The independent company is popular in both Melton and Woodbridge and is renowned for its all-day brunch and "Buddha bowls".
It is anticipated the coffee shop will open later this year, with owners hoping to serve customers from October or November. Sofology is opening a new store in Futura Park next month - Credit: Archant.
