The whaling capital of the world during the mid-19C, New Bedord is still a working fishing port, its wharves today crowded with modern fishing craft rather than majestic whaling shops. Cobblestone streets lead to the waterfront, where ships' supplies and antiques are sold. New Bedford's illustrious whaling days are commemorated at the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park, which preserves some 70 structures and a large whaling museum atop Johnny Cake Hill within walking distance of the waterfront.
