“Portsmouth Market Square”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

We have visited Portsmouth many times. Market Square is a great place to visit with a wide variety of stores and places to eat. Nearby is Strawberry Banke wich is a delight. We sometimes go on a day trip and other times stay over. Either way it is always a great adventure.
