Well, I had hoped to spend more time in Portsmouth, but my friend and I mistakenly drove right on through and ended up in Portland, Maine for most of the day! On the way back to Boston, we stopped in Portsmouth and spent a few hours walking around this charming town located in the northeast corner of New Hampshire right on the Maine border.
My first impression of Portsmouth was that it is a peaceful place that is beautiful for photographing its quiet lanes and waterfront sights. It reminded me of a small English fishing village, which makes perfect sense if you study the history of the place.
My friend (VT member Zack01) and I wondered who lives in Portsmouth and what industries outside of fishing and tourism thrive here? Hmmm. I wish I had more time to find the answers, but nonetheless, my time here, though brief, was well spent and relaxing.
Portsmouth is quaint and charming, so don't forget to capture it on film. more travel advice
