Only a Certified Water Restoration Team can Restore Portsmouth Homes Back to Normal

Beautiful Portsmouth is an ideal destination for a summer visit. Located on the Piscataqua River and bordering Maine, this city in New Hampshire is known for its natural harbor.  Its strategic location allowed the town to flourish in colonial times, when fishing, lumber, and goods were traded at its port. So crucial was this settlement that Paul Revere rode to alert of the imminent arrival of British forces seeking to destroy it.

Portsmouth continued to grow, as did close-by settlements, but never gained the same expansion as cities like Portland or Boston. However, it retains its seacoast flare with lobster, beaches, and a well-preserved historic center. In 1958, the Strawbery Banke Museum opened its doors to preserve the rich history of the place, one that lives on through its residents. Located in the heart of downtown, it is an outdoor Museum ideal for family fun. Within its 10 acres, visitors can hear stories as told by performers in period costumes and get a glimpse of each historical period's objects, crafts, and food characteristics. 

The Port of New Hampshire is the only deep-water port in New Hampshire, making it ideal for international trade and the cruising industry.  Warehouses, a wharf, and office space make Portsmouth a suitable place for trade and charter fishing.  The city and its facilities are also crucial for the New Hampshire Foreign Trade Zone, which incentivizes business through preferential duties and taxes. 

Portsmouth residents also exhibit a particular preference for beer and are typically among the top cities in beer consumption in the nation. Microbreweries abound, and visitors are encouraged to taste different flavors. Visitors looking for a peaceful place to learn about history while delighting in the landscape and the region’s cuisine would do well to visit Portsmouth. Walking tours, museums, and family-owned businesses are ready to embrace tourists into their town.
