May 2022 • Friends

My friend and I grew up nearby and have visited Portsmouth numerous times. We decided to play tourists this weekend and are so happy we did. Not only did we learn historical fun facts about Portsmouth that we never knew (we’re history geeks), but also loved the gorgeous bike route. 


Don’t think twice....just DO IT!!
