Islington Street Guide

Islington Street in Portsmouth, aka the West End, has seen a explosion of business activity over the past couple years. Once the area was known for Hannaford's supermarket, The Button Factor and few businesses like Tony's Radio and TV. Nowadays it houses more than 100 retail stores, service businesses and small offices, from beer sellers to yoga studios. Recognizing the change, PortsmouthNH.com has added a guide to the neighborhood. See www.portsmouthnh.com/west_end/.

Things to Do

Gundalow <i>Piscataqua</i>
Gundalow Piscataqua, Portsmouth NH. For centuries, sailing barges connected up-river Seacoast to Portsmouth. The last of these "gundalows" disappeared decades ago, but a Seacoast nonprofit offers educational programs, tours and sailing trips aboard a full-scale replica, the Piscataqua.

Parking Shuttle Extended

PortsmouthNH's free downtown parking shuttle will continue to operate thru Nov. 2, city officials have announced. The shuttle, which was started on a trial basis in May, has since transported approximately 13,000 one-way riders between the Connect Community Church parking lot near on Market Street (near I-95's Exit 7) and the Hanover Parking Garage. This fall the shuttle will continue to run afternoons and evenings Thursday thru Sunday. For details, see www.parkportsmouth.com. For a map of parking locations, both free and paid, click here.

Tours: Walking, Driving, Floating

A directory of Seacoast tours has been added to PortsmouthNH.com's Things to Do. Guided and unguided. By foot, motor vehicle or boat. Fom Portsmouth to Dover and York. The dozen or so tour companies and organizations listed can give you a unique view of the Seacoast. Things to Do: Tours. (Single site tours are often available at historic homes, breweries and other attractions.)
