As part of our continuing effort to both build awareness of Amesbury’s many assets and boost the local economy, the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce was pleased to support production of the brochure: The River Cities; Discover the Mighty Merrimack.
The River Cities initiative is led by Senator Kathleen O’Connor Ives and Haverhill Representative Brian Dempsey to increase tourism along the Merrimack River, from Haverhill to the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. After they secured state funding from the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism to produce the brochure, we arranged a boat ride up the river to share information about Amesbury’s beautiful waterfront parks, well-appointed marinas and rich maritime history with the North of Boston tourism group tasked with collecting the brochure content.

This is just the first step of many that Senator O’Connor Ives and local Chambers have planned to increase tourism along the Merrimack River. As more funding is secured and more plans can become a reality, we will keep you informed of our progress.
