This is Market Square, the center of Portsmouth. Chick the video to see what’s happening right now.
This is a lower-level view of Portsmouth’s Market Square. You’ll see lots of cars turning into Church Street right in front of the camera. That’s because all the streets into Market Square are one way, and Church St. is a shortcut out of town.
A few blocks from downtown is Portsmouth’s waterfront and the home of the iconic Moran tugboats who move huge ships delivering cargo in and out of Portsmouth Harbor.
The harbor mouth or entrance is about 3 miles down the Piscataqua River from here, so these tugs meet the big ships at the harbor mouth and guide them safely upriver. The Piscataqua River has an exceptionally swift tidal current, and we have 7 to 9-foot tides every day. Because of the currents, big ships can only enter or leave during the slack tide periods when the tides turn. It’s fun to watch these maritime artists guide 600 foot long ships up the river and to their ports.
Just a few blocks east of downtown, and easy walking distance (most everything is downtown is within easy walking distance) is the Strawbery Banke Museum. During winter and the holidays, they install a huge ice skating rink for residents and visitors to enjoy. They also have demonstrations by professional skaters, which are fun to watch. Skate and then enjoy a hot drink by the outdoor firepit.
Just three miles away is the mouth of Portsmouth Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. This webcam is on Wood Island in the harbor mouth. This camera pans around to show different ocean scenes; at some time, you can see Whaleback Lighthouse, one of two lighthouses that help guide ships safely in and out of the harbor.
