Portsmouth, NH

Hop and a skip

10 minute walk to town

Take an easy 4-minute drive or 1/2 mile walk to downtown and then onto Prescott Park to walk along the water.


Portsmouth is one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities in the northeast.  Not only does the city’s layout lend itself to walkers and bikers, Portsmouth recently invested funds into improving bike lanes that lead from the west end into downtown. Moreover, as much of downtown (Market Square) gets a facelift, the city kept its pedestrians in mind, refurbishing sidewalks, building new walkways and expanding many of the pedestrian spaces around town.  All of this adds up to an incredible downtown that’s just a 10 minute walk from Islington Commons. By car in 7-10 minutes, on Woodbury Ave, Portsmouth is expecting a Whole Foods!
