Portsmouth, NH - Strawberry Banke Museum. A 10-acre living history space designed as a place to gather and to learn, a place where 300+ years of America's story is sustained. Once scheduled for urban renewal the 30+ buildings now showcase role-players who share their experience with life from the 1600's to 1950's.

NEW HAMPSHIRE ... picture postcard beautiful ... famous for fall foliage, covered bridges, & stunning natural environment ... surprising geographic variety in such a small State ... mtns, snow fields, rivers, seashore, pristine forests, lakes ... skiing, camping, hiking, rock climbing, hunting, fishing, sailing, sleigh rides, dog sledding ... friendly salt-of-the-Earth New Englanders ... fierce independent streak ... rich culture & history ... delightful to explore in any season.

I thoroughly enjoy the waters of NEW HAMPSHIRE ... 40,000 miles of rivers & streams ... more than 1300 lakes ... only 18 miles of seacoast, but each inch is picturesque ... the Isles of Shoals w/ their lighthouse ... I particularly like Portsmouth, epitome of an 18th Century New England seaside town ... antique stores, funky shops, bistros & cafes, excellent seafood ... lobster, clam chowder, artisan beers.

NEW HAMPSHIRE is world-famous for its glorious autumn foliage ... blooms across New England in September and October ... locals attest that the best viewing is along the Kancamangus Highway, a.k.a. "the Kanc" ... an easy 35-mile drive through 800,000 acres of the White Mountain National Forest.


NEW HAMPSHIRE is a great place to explore by automobile, RV, motorcycle, or bicycle ... back roads, charming towns & villages, splendid vistas, farmlands, deep forests, mountain passes ... I am particularly partial to the State's 54 historic covered bridges.

The Kancamagus Highway is a 34.5 mile scenic drive along NH's Rt. 112 in Northern New Hampshire that is well known as one of the best Fall Foliage viewing areas in the country.
