After a whole day of road tripping it was time to bring the second day in New England to an end. We had lunch in Newburyport and then we headed out to Portsmouth where we spent the night. Parts 2, 3 and 4 of this travel series cover our second day in New England. The charming towns we saw so far were once again present at the end of the day, and I think it shows in the images. I can imagine spending so much more time here. But we had more to see so we had to make sure that everything was covered. I hope you'll enjoy these images and on the third day we visited Portland as well as the Portland Head Lighthouse, another highlight of our trip.
Autumn Colors in NewburyportOnce we found a parking spot (Tip: around the church you can find two hour free parking on the side of the road), we began searching for our restaurant where we would have lunch. It was called Angie's Food, and it's an ok place. I had a Ruben sandwich the other various appetizers and burgers. The walk through the city was very enjoyable since the sun was just starting to set which gave even richer colors to the surroundings.
A Night in PortsmouthWe stayed a little bit outside of Portsmouth but headed into town for a night out. We found this lovely pub called "British Beer Company" (it's a local chain in Massachusetts and New Hampshire). Food and beer were delicious there. There were lots of people inside which made the stay even more enjoyable. Portsmouth isn't as small as the other towns we visited on this first day. It has a prominent harbor and maritime life.
We eventually headed back to our hotel to get a good nights rest. The next day was upon us and a big drive along the coast awaited us. We were headed for Portland and then inland through the White Mountain National Forest. Both yielded amazing sights. But more on that in part 5.
