Portsmouth and the Seacoast area is loaded with all kinds of fun, educational, and entertaining things to do, all year long!
This picture shows one of three bridges that connects the Portsmouth and the Seacoast areas of New Hampshire with the southern part of Maine, into Kittery and Eliot Maine.
Two of the three bridges are draw bridges, as Portsmouth is a working port, and tankers and other large ocean-going vessels have to be able to navigate our port and river, the Piscataqua River, which has the 3rd fastest current in the world, and leads right out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Right on the banks of this great river that divides New Hampshire and Maine in this area is a beautiful park that was given to the City of Portsmouth many years ago, Prescott Park. It was given to the city by the Prescott sisters, Josie and Mary Prescott, and is so named after them.
