“Beautiful Harbor Views”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

This lovely spot, right at the harbor for Portsmouth, is easy to get to, fun to climb around and explore. Vistas of the ocean and harbor including lighthouses and the forts of Kittery on the far show make this a fun destination.

This is a place locals go to get away. Great views and the great feeling of history under your feet.

“Great lighthouse tour”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

This is a picturesque light house in Portsmouth (actually on the island of New Castle). The tour guide was really friendly and knowledgeable and the view from the top was memorable. And windy.

“Flat and scenic hiking spot for families.”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

Trails go along the water and then some are more inland. Relatively flat and areas kids can climb in. Very pretty along the coast.
