The goal of the Seaport Cultural District is to stimulate the economy through collaborations between businesses and cultural institutions.

The district has been a year in the making and was officially designated in March.

The Seaport Cultural District spans from the waterfront to North Sixth and Seventh Streets and from Elm and William Streets to Union and Spring Streets. It consists of 20 downtown blocks and nearly 80 attractions including the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park.
