WHAT WE DID :
Flew in, arriving at Logan at around 5.15. Picked up rental car from Alamo. Headed to Portsmouth via I-95. It was dark, there was a fair bit of traffic and we were tired and hungry. Good advice from Alamo counter on exiting the airport and city, and it was good to have the GPS!
Stayed at Port Inn (easy to find, good value, nice roomy room, very ordinary continental breakfast included). Ate at Jumping Jay’s Fish Café (excellent! especially their clam chowder). Next morning toured around Portsmouth (beautiful).
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE :
Portsmouth deserved more! Should have allocated two nights as we were very tired when we arrived and didn’t get the best value out of a fine restaurant. We saw a little of Portsmouth the next day, but would have like to have explored a lot more.
