Your Weekend Getaway in Portsmouth, New Hampshire

If you are looking for a quaint New England style city along the east coast, Portsmouth, New Hampshire is the perfect destination.     The winding streets, waterfront views, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and street performers are just a few of the features that make Portsmouth so worth the visit.   We visited Portsmouth after our time in Maine at Great Diamond Island, which you can read more about here. Portsmouth is only an hour drive from Portland, and this wasn’t our first time visiting the city along a road trip to Maine. It definitely is worth the stop if passing through or as your New England destination!  Hotel Highlight:  Residence Inn Portsmouth Waterfront/Downtown Our family was welcomed at the Residence Inn Portsmouth Waterfront/Downtown with adorable rubber duck characters from the front desk receptionist and a welcome box of Portsmouth novelties in our suite.
