Harmony, Portsmouth NH has a lot of upscale and New England-ee restaurants. A few eateries sit on the water. There is music and theater outdoors at Prescott Park. They ask for a donation. I've seen Arlo Guthrie there; unfortunately missed Lucinda Williams who played the park a couple years back. Portsmouth is highly walkable town too. Nice little coffee and or pastry shops. Go local there and stay away from the Big Name national chains. From Portsmouth you can shoot up the high way to Portland Maine... In Maine go to Old Towne in Portland. Again, nice little restaurants, bistros, Korean, Chinese, etc as well as New England sea food. Portland is also very walkable... The Portland Museum of Art is little but lovely and usually have good shows. This is from their blurb: Our collection consists of over 18,000 artworks, ranging from Andy Warhol and Winslow Homer to Louise Nevelson and Claude Monet. Enjoy your trip to new England...and remember...you can't get there from here... Oh and I forgot... or it didn't happen...okay?
