Portsmouth Market Square – Summer in the Street

Just a 10 minute walk from our Portsmouth bed and breakfast is the heart of downtown Portsmouth, NH – Market Square.  So many events happen in Market Square it is amazing.  And even when there are no events planned, sitting on the Square outside one of the coffee shops provides wonderful people watching.  Every Friday night, however, we have the Summer in the Street series which runs from late June through the end of July.  This fun musical series happens from late afternoon until the stars come out (5:30 to 9:00 pm).

Musical guest performers in 2011 include: Salt River, Wooden Eye, and Jeff Warner.  But there are theatrical and dance performances as well, such as the UNH Theater on Tour and the Seacoast Civic Dance Co.

Stay at the Martin Hill Inn this July to enjoy these wonderful performances which are just a 10 minute walk away.  Stay downtown for a glass of wine or dinner.  After the performance, stroll to Annabelle’s Homemade Ice Cream on Ceres Street for a real summertime treat.
