Newburyport is a favorite local town to shop - especially during the holidays. The fantastic lights downtown, the tree in Market Square, all the beautifully decorated window boxes and of course, Santa's Workshop, where the kids can whisper their wishes to Santa.
Santa's Workshop on Inn Street in downtown Newburyport has been recently rebuilt and dedicated to the memory of James F. Patten Jr. The new workshop, which is handicapped-accessible, will welcome children on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children can visit Santa and tell him their Christmas wishes and each child to visit Santa will receive a complimentary photo.
Then enjoy strolling around the beautiful downtown area - a great way to spend a weekend day with the family during the holiday season.
