On your next trip to Portsmouth, New Hampshire make sure to consider employing our Portsmouth car hire services as your main means of transportation through the city. Portsmouth is actually the third oldest city in the entire United State of America and is a very important city on the New Hampshire seacoast region.
While the city does have a local airport, it no longer has commercial flights so the closes you can land to it are either Manchester or Portland, which are about an hour’s drive away, or Boston which is a bit more than an hour away in good traffic. You can’t really reach the city by train directly either, the closest you can get to it being nearby Dover. Of course you can get there by car, but if you reach the city by any other means make sure to consider employing our Portsmouth car rental services so that you can have a car at your disposal while there.
The city isn’t exactly a tourist destination, but there are a few things here and there to occupy your time with, for instance the Strawbery Banke Museum which is basically an historic neighborhood made up of forty-two buildings which have been preserved intact since the 17th and 19th centuries. This outdoor museum offers its visitors the very rare opportunity of actually walking back in time and you can visit the houses as a whole while some of them feature specific exhibits like gardens or even artisans practicing traditional trades.
Then there’s also the Albacore Museum and Park which offers you the rather unique opportunity of touring a U.S. Navy submarine that was actually in services for almost twenty years. Now however, it is dry docked in a small park just outside the city’s center. The thing is that this submarine was actually built in Portsmouth so that’s why it is located here now.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Portsmouth to make sure to consider employing our Portsmouth car hire services while on your trip there.
