Four Tree Island
It’s been known by many names, but one thing is for sure about Four Tree Island – you’re going to enjoy your time there. It might be known more as a summer hotspot – and it’s a great place for a summer cookout – but there’s no denying that when fall hits and the colors begin to change, the island that’s not really an island anymore is a thing of absolute beauty. Four Tree Island is open from dawn until dusk and features multiple barbeque pits, picnic tables, a large play area and striking views of Memorial Bridge, the Piscataqua River, the Portsmouth Fish Pier and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.
If you’re stopping at Four Tree Island, you might as well head on over the pedestrian causeway to Peirce Island. Bigger than Four Tree Island, Peirce Island has everything you need for a fall adventure, including walking paths, playgrounds, boat launches and an outdoor pool. Though you may want to hold off until next summer for that last one, depending on the weather. Peirce Island also offers a number of impeccable views of things like salt marshes, tidal pools, cliffs and meadows.
Odiorne Point State Park
If you want to add a short drive to your excursion, why not head to Rye, NH, and check out everything Odiorne Point State Park has to offer? It has everything you’d expect a state park to have and more, including the Seacoast Science Center and its exhibits on the history of the Odiorne area. And, yes, it has all the scenic beauty you need to enjoy the fall colors.
With everything our wonderful city has to offer, it’ll be hard to be bored in Portsmouth this fall. And if you need a vehicle to get you where you need to go, be sure to check out our new and used inventory here at Seacoast Mazda. Now get out there and enjoy!
