Portsmouth is a festival and celebration city. It is also a blend of historic port and joyful self-indulgence in good restaurants, galleries, and gift shops, with music and another good bakery always waiting to be discovered. Look for the music series in Market Square; concerts and musicals at Prescott Park; and a Shakespeare Festival in August, plus single-day events like the September apple cider day at Jackson House, the state’s oldest house.
And then there's the bonus, New Hampshire's seacoast, up and down from Portsmouth, with eighteen miles of sandy beaches, blue ocean, distant islands, and the haunting cries of seagulls over the slap of the waves. Indeed, it is an oceanside delight, and much of the coast is state beaches.
