New Bedford is a city in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 95,072, making it the sixth-largest city in Massachusetts. New Bedford is nicknamed "The Whaling City" because during the 19th century, the city was one of the most important, if not the most important, whaling ports in the world, along with Nantucket, Massachusetts and New London, Connecticut. The city, along with Fall River and Taunton, make up the three largest cities in the South Coast region of Massachusetts. The Greater Providence-Fall River-New Bedford area is home to the largest Portuguese-American community in the United States.

New Bedford's nickname is "The Whaling City", as its history is closely tied with the whaling industry. New Bedford's whalers sold whale products such as oils, candles and whalers such as Lewis Temple, refined whaling techniques by creating new tools such as the toggling harpoon, making whaling easier and leading to New Bedford's importance in this historic industry. Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick, worked in New Bedford as a whaler and drew inspiration for it in his novel.
