Portsmouth is one of my favorite places in NH, on that short bit of shoreline NH has. The Strawbery Banke restoration is wonderful - done by the same man (or men) who did the Williamsburg restoration. It's been years since I was there, so it probably is even better if it hasn't gotten too commercialized. Also John Paul Jones' home is in Portsmouth and several good restaurants. The Blue Onion, right on the water is the one I remember especially. Reservations required as there are only two sittings. It was great food, prix fixe menu, china and crystal (butunmatched). If you try it, I do hope it is still the same. It had so much charm along with the excellent food. I remember a great steakhouse (but not the name). It is likely all changed anyway, but you are bound to like Portsmouth.
