Ironically, New England is the site of some of the richest history in the US. I am lucky enough to be able to have visited the New England states several times and this weekend was no exception.
In fact, I take at least one mini-trip up there a month. One of my favorite states is New Hampshire (also my home state.) New Hampshire is frequently described as ‘God’s Country,’ by those down south whom have never actually lived there. It has beautiful mountains, some smaller cities, and about ten miles of coastline.
This weekend, I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy my mini-trip up to the NH coast. I visited Portsmouth, NH which is a coastal city filled with history. There’s Strawberry Banke (an outdoor museum). There’s some coastline, and sunset cruises. Plus, the weekend nightlife in the summer includes diverse offerings of live music! This weekend I saw two very distinct bands for a very small cover charge.
After a night in Portsmouth, I was ready to spend a day in Hampton. Hampton beach is a gorgeous beach on NH ten miles of coastline with a half-mike strip of shops, and restaurants. Past the strip, there are beautifully expensive mansions and a trail that follows the coastline. The beaches visible from there are less crowded, and look more natural than the ones located on the main strip. It’s one of the best places to watch the sunset. Pictures of that are located below:
