I loved your Travel column about New Bedford, Mass., “A Whale of a Town” (Oct. 11), with its lovely description of its whaling history and Jewish community. Having grown up in New Bedford (and my father was born and grew up in New Bedford) I can attest to what was described in the article. I would also like to add that New Bedford boasts three beautiful beaches, one with a children’s playground, snack bar and a lovely walking path along the point, overlooking gorgeous water views, as well as Buttonwood Park Zoo which has a fabulous children’s playground.
New Bedford is a wonderful spot for vacationing families.
