Seated on the banks of the Piscataqua River, Portsmouth is a small city with a large history. The third oldest city in the nation, Portsmouth is picturesque New England at its finest. Historic buildings line the walkable streets of Market Square and iconic tugboats lead ships in and out of Portsmouth Harbor. A close-knit community and scenic landscape define the area.

In addition to its rich history, Portsmouth boasts a vibrant cultural scene. Strawberry Banke Museum, Portsmouth Athenaeum, the Music Hall, and the New Hampshire Film Festival all contribute to the unique experience Portsmouth offers. Known for having more restaurant seats than people, Portsmouth is home to an active farm-to-table scene and heavily-frequented farmers market. Water Country Water Park is in town and nearby beach access is at Odiorne Point State Park and Hampton Beach State Park. The White Mountains are less than a two-hour drive away as well.

Just an hour away from Boston, Portsmouth provides simple travels and commutes with access to I-95 and Portsmouth International Airport.
