Portsmouth

Portsmouth is a city in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, in the United States. Kick off your visit on the 20th (Sun): steep yourself in history at Strawbery Banke Museum, get interesting insight from Gundalow Company, then enjoy the sand and surf at Hampton Beach State Park, and finally hike along Salisbury Rail Trail.

Plan my Portsmouth trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Boston to Portsmouth is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. Expect little chillier evenings in Portsmouth when traveling from Boston in September, with lows around 54°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) early enough to drive to Burlington.

The Green Mountain State
Known for its autumn foliage and maple syrup, Vermont is one of the country's smallest states in terms of both population and geographic area. Despite its small size and mostly rural character, the state boasts many picturesque places to visit, including Lake Champlain, one of the nation's largest freshwater bodies. Split in half by the Green Mountains--a popular holiday destination for hiking and skiing--Vermont features a rolling landscape dotted with farms and quaint towns known for their family-run inns, antique shops, and restaurants. Be sure to explore the state's many wild areas while on vacation, but beware of the so-called "mud season," a period of a few weeks when the state's unpaved roads become undrivable due to spring thaw.
