New England Spot Named One Of The Best Under The Radar Destinations
Traveling in the Northeast allows tourists the ability to escape to mountains or waterside locations. A New England destination that travel website Fifty Grande has highlighted as an “under-the-radar” destination can offer both, in close proximity.
People are looking to explore new adventures nowadays. Often that entails packing up the car and heading on a road trip to a location you may not know much about. There’s a thrill to stumbling across an environment you may never have known was there, or had no expectations for.
That’s what Fifty Grande has showcased in their latest report, which aims to inspire travelers to look outside their comfort zone. “Some will be eye-opening thanks to glorious landscapes, others for musical hot spots, and many are recommended if you’re just looking to rejuvenate yourself,” they explain.
This particular destination they have featured for being an under-the-radar area is the only one from New England to make the list. So, how about we hop on interstate 95 and head north to check it out.
Portsmouth, New Hampshire
From Boulder Loop hiking trails to lighthouses and the South Mill Pond, Portsmouth has something nature-filled for everyone. Market Square is where you can find a wide range of restaurants. Cobblestone streets emphasize the historical charm of the city. The libraries and independent bookstores also help reinforce that.
Fifty Grande highlights the waterside views of Portsmouth by saying, “It fronts the Piscataqua River, just half a mile from the ocean and a short bridge ride away from tourist hub Kittery, Maine.”
Live music is also popular throughout the area. The Victorian-style music hall has become a popular concert spot at this New England under the radar destination.
Lastly, the layout of Portsmouth allows for a wide range of tours to embark on to explore the area. Everything from walking tours, to food tours, to historic tours can give you a firsthand look at why places like Go Portsmouth also describe the area as “New Hampshire’s Gateway To The World.”
