Travel Guide to Portsmouth, USA

Portsmouth is one of the three oldest cities in America, which strikes visitors by its rich cultural and historical heritage. The city was founded in 1623; many old buildings and beautiful mansions have survived till our days. It seems that the atmosphere of the city does not change with time. Small streets of the city are always calm and quiet. They are more like English quarters of the last century rather than streets of a modern city.
As Portsmouth is rather small, one can easily get around on foot and see all major attractions of this place. One of the attractive spots is the home of Warner built in 1716. It's a beautiful building made of red brick, which is decorated with fine wall paintings. The residence of John Longdon is located nearby. This building was founded in 1785. This house is famous by one fact - George Washington himself stopped in it.
The open-air museum, which is called Strawbery Banke Museum, is the real pride of Portsmouth. This is a large complex that includes more than forty buildings that imitate antique colonial settlements. Tourists will be met by the museum’s staff dressed in special “antique" costumes.
The most beautiful parks and alleys can be found on the banks of the Piskataqua River. Here are also located excellent restaurants opened in the buildings of past centuries. Besides the fact that you will be served delicious food, the decor of restaurants is simply delightful. Everything is chosen with great taste and all details emphasize the welcoming atmosphere of this place. Shops and shopping centers can be found near the coast, here are also located a network of popular restaurants and cafes. During warmer months, the beaches become the location of colorful festivals and parades. Here are organized performances for children, and on evenings tourists can enjoy fireworks or attend a music concert featuring local bands.
