Historic, yet hip. Small, yet bustling. Classic, yet culinary. New Hampshire’s only seaside city crackles with life year-round. It’s a beer-brewing destination, a growing foodie town, and was named one of “America’s Prettiest Towns” by Forbes magazine. Stroll the quaint city streets and revel in live music or other stellar programming at the acclaimed Music Hall. For deal seekers, Portsmouth also is home to one of the best consignment stores on the planet, Esta, just a few blocks from Ale House Inn.
