One of America’s Prettiest Towns

By Linda Tancs

In 2009, Forbes Traveler listed Portsmouth, New Hampshire as one of “America’s Prettiest Towns.”  It’s also one of the oldest.  Settled in 1623, it is reputedly the nation’s third oldest city.  The locals suggest that it even has the most restaurants per capita.  Whatever the homage, this relatively small city near the mouth of the Piscataqua River offers more than 70 points of scenic and historic significance along the Harbour Trail, including 10 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings, 10 National Historic Landmarks and three historic homes.
