Islands & Harbor Bike Tour
Come See what makes Portsmouth awesome!
Where You'll Go!
Our perfectly-sized city is famous for its phenomenal architecture and historic preservation, our marvelous food scene, the beautiful 16, 17, 18 miles (depending on who you ask!) of New Hampshire coastline. With our trendy community of artists, street performers, music venues, food and the list goes on, Portsmouth is one of the few heterogeneous places in New Hampshire. With all of this, there has been a long history of craftmanship: sculptures, street art, steampunk art, street musicians, performers, murals, and graffiti. (head smack)
Discover the most unique neighborhoods in Portsmouth! The enchanting street art is not one you’ll want to miss. What was once a bland waterfront industrial area is now home to Georgian, Federal and Colonial Style Historic Houses, famous art galleries and stunning public art displays. On any given day, this city is buzzing as people far and wide flock to its hip restaurants, breweries and event spaces. It is a living piece of art with its rotating works and ever-changing styles. You’ll learn about the world-renowned street artists, their eclectic styles, and how they unite to create collective masterpieces of urban art.
