4 Ways To Spend a Girls Day Near Portsmouth, NH

One of the greatest perks of being stationed at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is your sailor is (hopefully) home and you can have a moment to yourself or with friends!

Here are four fun itineraries to consider for your next girls day:

Take a Cooking Class

Grab your gals and visit the Cooking School at Tuscan Market Salem. Learn how to make tantalizing items such as breakfast pizza while enjoying a mimosa or craft cavatelli and Tuscan Kitchens signature Bolognese. If you do enough cooking at home and rather just sip they even have wine tasting with Italian desserts and cheese. All classes can be found online and reservations are required.

Day Trip to Portland

Pack up the car for a short road trip and in less than 60 minutes you are transported to waterfront views, fresh oysters, breweries and iconic landmarks. Check out the Portland Head Light then travel down the road to for a bite to eat. Some of my favorites are DuckFat, The Honey Paw, and Eventide Oyster Co. With a full belly stroll down to one of the many breweries, such as Allagash, or walk down Commercial Street for some window shopping as the boats come in. For more trip ideas, click here.

Paint and Sip at Firefly Pottery

Sometimes there is nothing more relaxing then channeling your inner artist while sipping your favorite beverage. Firefly Pottery offers Therapy Night every Tuesday and Thursday night best of all its BYOB. You additionally save 15% on your pottery purchase when you spend $15. Can’t make it on a Tuesday or Thursday evening you can always make a reservation for another day, art class, or try glass fusing.

Spa Day at the Cliff House

This tranquil oceanfront seaside sanctuary is situated high atop the majestic cliffs of Maine’s southern coast. Guests unwind before a treatment in the luminous sanctuary surrounded by views of the cliff and infinite horizon. Showcasing the very best wellness and beauty practices, The Spa provides energetic, therapeutic and holistic therapies for all to enjoy. Spa guests have access to saunas, steam rooms and relax while overlooking seacoast cliffs. If a long spa services is not in your budget my pro tip for enjoying the spa on a budget it to book a nail service, which are typically less, and with this reservation you still have access to all the spa ammentities.
