State Street South Live Cam Views

A Clear View of What’s Up

 

Best of NewburyportSM Experts

State Street South Live Cam Views 

Want to follow the comings and goings in downtown Newburyport without leaving your seat?  Then check out the Newburyport.com State Street South Live Cam now affixed outside Ganesh Imports. The camera provides a real-time look into what is taking place on State Street looking south towards High Street.

For 27 years, Ganesh Imports, also located in Portsmouth and Exeter, N.H., has been selling eclectic clothing, gifts and furniture from countries across the globe. Owner Bill Bixby travels exotic locales in India, Indonesia, Thailand, Nepal and other countries looking for items to sell in downtown Newburyport. In some cases, Bill brings back items for sale himself. Larger items are shipped separately. Regardless, new merchandise is delivered to the State Street store on a regular basis meaning that you can count of seeing new items each trip to Ganesh Imports. Named after the elephant-headed Indian god of prosperity, Ganesh Imports  focuses mostly on BoHo sheik-style clothing. “But we try to have something for everybody if we can,” Bill said, pointing to the store’s wide range of gifts and crafts.

When presented with the idea of placing cameras outside his storefront, Bill said he jumped at the opportunity, calling it a nice fit for the store and a great way to promote not only his business but the downtown Newburyport shopping experience. “I just think it’s a neat concept — get on and see what’s going on,” Bill said. In addition to the State Street South Live Cam there is a State Street North Live Cam pointed in the direction of Market Square. 

As a strong partner in the Best of Newburyport VIP Program, Ganesh Imports provides VIP Card holders a 10% discount off  all non-sale items. Just present your VIP Card to take advantage of this offer.

Riverfront Boating Live Cam

Live Views from the Rear Range Lighthouse Dining Experience

Best of NewburyportSM Experts

Take a trip to the Waterfront with our Live Cam of Beautiful Newburyport

The Riverfront Boating Live Cam, positioned on top of the Rear Range Lighthouse, gives viewer unobstructed views of Newburyport’s breathtaking waterfront. Watch live as boats come and go along the Merrimack River, sail out to the Atlantic Ocean, and dock for a day in town. This historic lighthouse not only promises the best views of the Merrimack River, but is also home to Newburyport’s one-of-a-kind lighthouse dining experience where you can enjoy this fantastic view in person.

Diners are given exclusive access to the lighthouse to enjoy panoramic views, only otherwise seen through our live cams, all while dining with a personal waiter. Deemed “the most private and exclusive dining space in New England” by FOX TV, this glass enclosed gem is the perfect place to celebrate something special.

The Rear Range Lighthouse was built in 1873 and stands 32 feet tall. Built together with the Front Range Lighthouse, the pair were constructed to guide boats to Newburyport’s bustling waterfront.

Out of commission since 1961, both lighthouses are maintained and operated by the Lighthouse Preservation Society. The lighthouse dining experience was created by the society to raise funds to maintain both lighthouses and keep them open to the public. So while booking this experience will surely create a lifetime memory, your contributions also ensure the lighthouse continues to be a part of Newburyport.

    Second only to being out on a boat yourself, our Newburyport Boat Traffic Cam is the best view of boats coming and going on the Merrimack River. Located where the river empties into the Atlantic Ocean, this live cam is positioned 32 feet up on top of the historic Rear Range Lighthouse, home to Newburyport’s most unique and sought after lighthouse dining experience.

    Our Boat Traffic Cam allows users to enjoy views of the US Coast Guard, gaze at the sailboats heading out to the Atlantic, or watch speed boats make their way back from a day anchored around Plum Island Beach.

    After enjoying this live camera feed, you may find yourself dreaming of seeing such views firsthand—and you can! Named the region’s “Most Romantic and Exclusive Dining” experience by the Phantom Gourmet, you can book a private lighthouse dining experience to enjoy sweeping 360 degree views of Newburyport and the waterfront boat traffic in person. Unlike any other dining experience, you will climb up a ladder to the actual top of the lighthouse to dine in a glass enclosed room with a personal waiter for the entirety of the evening.

    Newburyport Harbor Front and Rear Range Lights date back to 1873 and stayed in commission until 1961. The Lighthouse Preservation Society created the lighthouse dining experience as a way to raise money to keep both lights open to the public.

    Newburyport VIP Card Discount

    To make a reservation, call The Lighthouse Preservation Society at 1-800-727-BEAM (2326), and book a breakfast, lunch, or dinner experience. Lighthouse dining can accommodate parties of 2 or 4 and active Newburyport VIP Card holders receive 10% off their reservation. In order to receive the discount email VIPcard@Newburyport.com so we can confirm active card status, and provide you with a discount code that you must have when calling to book your reservation.

    Market Square Live CAM – A Historic View of Newburyport Community

    The Market Square Live CAM is used by many locals and visitors to check out happenings in Market Square. This live web camera looks out over Market Square, where Merrimac Street, State Street and Water Street meet in the center of downtown Newburyport. The City of Newburyport is host to many annual events and festivals. During these festivities you can view real-time live entertainment via our Market Square Live Cam.

    Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Market Square is lined with Federal style brick buildings. If you’re standing in Market Square, and look high up on the center of the building you will see a subtle off white stone sing that says, West Row. All of these buildings were row houses when originally constructed and many have been converted into restaurants and retail shops.

    A Glimpse of the Heart & Soul of Newburyport from the Inn Street Live CAM

    The Inn Street Live CAM captures a glimpse of the Heart & Soul of Newburyport’s charming downtown.  In just one block of historic Newburyport you can shop for extraordinary clothing and accessories, find a special home decor treasure, and get your hair cut.

    Thanks to Smitten Newburyport’s destination for Women’s fashion clothing and accessories, Newburyport.com has positioned a live streaming web camera on Inn Street, right next to the Inn Street Park and Playground.

    Why do people fall in love with Newburyport?  It starts with a delicious meal from one of our many fabulous local restaurants followed by a stroll down historic Inn Street towards the water and up the boardwalk for some boat watching and maybe even some free live music preformed by a local artist trying to get recognized.  The historic buildings and beautiful water views set the stage, but the large selection of great restaurants and shops make Newburyport the hub for so many North Shore and Southern NH towns.

    State Street North Live Cam Views

    Thanks to downtown Newburyport’s host of boutiques, small businesses and restaurants, there’s plenty of hustle & bustle along State Street. This makes our State Street North Live Cam a must-see for real-time happenings in the city’s busiest commercial area.

    We’ve partnered with one of Newburyport’s most popular shop’s Ganesh Imports to broadcast live from our State Street North Live Cam looking out over State Street in the direction of Market Square. Inspiring customers for 27 years, Ganesh Imports features an eclectic selection of unique goods sourced from many countries around the world. Named after the Hindu lord of luck and removal of obstacles, Ganesh Imports offers a wide range of items ranging from furniture to small gifts and trendy clothing.

    Among the more popular gifts in the store is its large collection of colorful and hip door knobs and pulls. The knobs present proof of the store’s relaxed and spiritual atmosphere. That atmosphere is augmented by the subtle scent of incense. After 27 years of running Ganesh Imports, with help from his girlfriend and staff, owner Bill Bixby said he doesn’t even notice the incense. In addition to selling incense, Ganesh Imports offers incense boards, oils and soaps.

    Ganesh Imports is a proud member of the Best of Newburyport VIP Program, helping to raise money for Newburyport.com’s 23 local nonprofit partner organizations. Ganesh chooses to reward loyal VIP Card holders with a 10% discount of all non-sale items every time they shop at Ganesh Imports.
