Ipswich is a charming seaside town with a rich history dating back to 1634, many outstanding recreational destinations, and is famous for its clams. For an enchanting look at history and habitat, visitors won’t want to miss Castle Hill on the Crane Estate. This grand summer estate atop the hill was formerly owned by one of America’s wealthiest families, now open for tours. The four miles of trails around Castle Hill are the perfect place to glimpse the wide variety of wildlife typical of the area including foxes, deer, and wild turkey. Adjacent to Castle Hill, visitors will find Crane Beach, the ideal place to enjoy a day at the beach or explore the 5 miles of scenic trails across dunes and along the beachfront. Willowdale State Forest and Sandy Point State Reservation are also astounding places to discover and enjoy nature while in Ipswich. In the fall, visitors can celebrate Ipswich’s famed clams at Chowderfest, sampling some of the best chowders from local restaurants and caterers.
