I have been thoroughly enjoying getting to know the seacoast area, in particular, Portsmouth, NH. It's an usual part of the world in which you have all four seasons, the mountains and the ocean!

My parents had land on Martha's Vineyard when I was growing up, back before it was the "it" place to be. We grew up camping on that land because my parents believed in making as little impact as possible wherever we went. Some of my best childhood memories still live there.
I was terribly inspired while taking a ferry out on the Piscataqua in the spring. Fort Constitution was apparently one of the seven forts built to defend the Portsmouth Harbor. The fort is visible as we sailed to the Isles of Shoales overlooking the Piscataqua River and Atlantic Ocean.
You can't get out to Nubble Lighthouse without a little dingy (it's a boat people, get your head out of the gutter).
Worth all the effort though. Nubble really is as picturesque and beautiful as it seems.
A must-see destination in Portsmouth
When describing the areaTugboats and Portsmouth seem to comfortably go hand in hand.

Breaking New Grounds in Market Square, Portsmouth, NH is an unofficial local landmark. Great local hangout with chairs and tables outside and a funky, quirky interior. With several coffee shops within a block radius, it's my go-to.
One of the main attractions of Portsmouth would have to be Strawberry Banke. The experience of life in a typical New England neighborhood in restored historical buildings. The garden is a vision.
