Last week, my husband Greg and I took a short trip up north to Portsmouth, New Hampshire where we spent a couple of nights. I can’t even imagine how many times we have passed Portsmouth on the highway often remarking that we need to stop there one of these days. So when we discovered that we had a free night’s stay in a hotel chain that we frequent, after searching around for places within easy driving distance, we settled on Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Portsmouth sits near the mouth of the Piscataqua River that divides New Hampshire and Maine. A small city of about 21,000, it has a thriving commercial district with many interesting stores and restaurants. We decided that we waited too long to discover this beautiful town and are hoping to return…soon.
So here is a little of our trip to Portsmouth, New Hampshire…
