given based on criteria used to determine the best places in the country that
provide ‘the greatest opportunities for living the good life‘.

Sited as a ‘compact walkable city… a magnet for emerging musicians and
artists, with eight indie theaters including the renovated Music Hall, half a
dozen galleries, film fests, a slow-food movement, and live music seven nights a
‘.  We have all that and much more – those of us who live here in Portsmouth
just love it.
