The Amesbury has more perks than just our great amenities, awesome apartments and super rates. One of the great advantages of The Amesbury is our location. The nearby community of colleges/universities, commerce, and nightlife brings you big city entertainment, sports, and the arts with one of the quickest accesses possible (about 2 miles) to get to the interstate – just in case you do want to get out of this awesome town.
