Located in Rockingham County in the southeastern corner of New Hampshire, Portsmouth is a seaport with a population of over 21,000 people. One of the oldest cities in the eastern United States, Portsmouth was settled in 1630 but had been home to the American Indian Tribes of the Algonquian and Abenaki nations long before that. Between Kittery, Maine and Greenland, New Hampshire, the city lies along the banks of the Piscataqua River and boasts a plethora of great places to visit while you are in town. 

Some of the highlights include several museums, parks, and theaters, as well as shopping, eateries, and historical buildings. Quaint lighthouses dot the shorelines, and the sculptures in the city are like nothing you have ever seen before. There are even street musicians and other entertainers along the roads on many weekends. The South Mill Pond and Sagamore Creek are fun places to see, and you can rent a boat or take a tour. 

While you are visiting the attractions, eating great food, and shopping at the many boutiques, you won’t want to have to lug around your bags. Leave them with one of Bounce’s partners in the area. You know your bags will be safe with Bounce while you are exploring the sights of Portsmouth.

Portsmouth City Guide 

Top Things to Do   

Portsmouth has a ton of fun things to do, whether you are with your whole family, a few friends, or on your own. From live entertainment to peaceful beachside trails with a variety of eateries, boutiques, and cultural buildings added in, there is something here for anyone to enjoy. You can also find museums, theaters, and art galleries sprinkled around the city. Bounce offers a guide to some of the most interesting places in Portsmouth to visit while you are in town.  


The City of Portsmouth has over a dozen museums you can visit whether you are into art, history, architecture, or even strawberries. Leave your bags with Bounce and tour the best must-see places in the east. 

  • Strawberry Banke Museum: On the corner of Hancock and Washington across from the Labrie Family Skate Pond is a 10-acre village and strawberry garden that people of all ages will enjoy. This outdoor museum includes over 300 years of American history, crafts, activities, and role-playing stories as well as tours, exhibits, and even a store with souvenirs. You’ll need to leave your luggage somewhere, and Bounce has several spots in the area for you to choose from.

  • Warner House: Check out the 1716 Warner House on the corner of Daniel and Chapel. It's also known as the Grand Dame of Daniel Street. The house was the home to six generations until it was purchased by the Warner House Association to save it from being razed in the early 1930s. Daily tours, early glass exhibits, and a gift shop are just a few of the things to discover here. Be sure to drop off your bags with a Bounce partner before coming, so you don’t have to drag them along. 

  • USS Albacore Museum: On Market Street and US-1, historians and those just wanting to see a cool submarine will love this place. They offer both guided and self-guided tours inside the Albacore. Take a look through the periscope, see the control room, and check out the bunkrooms where the sailors slept while they were at sea. Make sure you bring your camera along but drop off your suitcases at one of Bounce’s locations nearby first.


Portsmouth has some great places to shop for souvenir items, clothing, and specialty items as well. You can even find fun beach boutiques where you can get crafts made by the locals. Whether you are looking for something for you or for the folks back home, if you cannot find it here, you probably won’t find it anywhere. 

  • Ten Thousand Villages: Right in the center of the city on Congress Street, you can find over 130 artisan groups from 38 countries around the world. With thousands of gifts and novelty items from jewelry, eco-friendly items, children’s toys, and more, you will get some serious retail therapy here. Leave your bags with one of the Bounce partners nearby while you shop to free up your hands to carry purchases.

  • The Crossings: Shop at the mall without taxes just off of US-4 and Woodbury. The tax-free mall has over 20 places to peruse from Kohls to the tiny Stone Cold Creamery, so you should be able to find whatever you are looking for. Best Buy has electronics and more, Dick’s Sporting Goods is there for all your sporting needs, and Michaels will take care of your crafting items. There is also an Old Navy Clothing Store, Ulta Beauty Store, and even an Aldi Grocery Store. Drop off your belongings with Bounce before heading to the Crossings because you cannot carry your bags if you are pulling your luggage. 

  • Christmas Tree Shops and That: This unique shop on US-4 across from the Crossings has more than just Christmas trees, but it does have a lot of seasonal items. For those who love Christmas, this store is for you. Other things you can find here include furniture, outdoor and garden items, kitchen stuff, and gifts galore. Leave your bags with a Bounce partner nearby so you can shop unhindered. 


You certainly won’t have to go hungry in Portsmouth. The city boasts more than two dozen restaurants and a bunch of smaller eateries as well. From fast food to elegant dining and tacos to tilapia, the variety of places to eat are outstanding here. 

  • Massimo: The fine dining Italian restaurant on Penhallow and Custom House Lane serves delicious food that looks as good as it tastes. The restaurant has two sections, the Ristorante Massimo and Upstairs at Massimo’s. The Ristorante serves all sorts of Italian cuisine from Antipasti with caviar and crème fraiche to Primi Piatte with black truffles and prosciutto. Upstairs you can find a more laid-back atmosphere with appetizers, pasta, and main meals like tenderloin with polenta and cod with pancetta and leeks. Find a Bounce partner to store your luggage. This is a fancy place, no suitcases allowed. 

  • Green Elephant: This vegetarian bistro and bar on Portwalk Place serves no meat at all, so if you are looking for a burger, don’t come here. Inspired by Thai chefs, they have a wide variety of vegetarian meals. You won’t miss that burger once you taste the food they serve you here. From deep-fried spring rolls to Chinese broccoli with breaded soy and stir-fried noodles and rice, the Green Elephant does not disappoint. Don’t bring your bags, though. Leave them with a Bounce partner nearby.

  • Lexie’s Joint: Down by Goodwin Park on Islington Street, Lexie’s is a charming and cozy spot to have a burger and beer. The relaxed atmosphere and delicious food make you want to stay forever. They have more than just burgers and beer, though. You can also get a fish taco or haddock sandwich, hot dogs, or a grilled cheese. Drop your things at one of the Bounce spots around the city before heading here.
