Just Up the Road: Portsmouth, NH
The New Hampshire Advantage means more than just our breathtaking Seacoast Region.
Aside from Exeter's charming downtown, with its restaurants, rivers views and unique shops- one of the things we love about our Seacoast Region of New Hampshire are the many other distinctive destinations within a short driving distance of RiverWoods Retirement Community.
A favorite of many people is the picturesque city of Portsmouth, NH. Portsmouth is currently featured in both Travel and Leisure Magazine and Where to Retire Magazine. Located about a half hour drive from RiverWoods, Portsmouth offers great food, shopping, history and more.
In the article, “8 Tempting Low-Tax Towns,” Where to Retire Contributor, Carol Jacobs, includes Portsmouth in the mix of retirement locations, in part because of our New Hampshire Advantage of having no income or sales tax.
Residents here at RiverWoods Retirement Community are also eligible for additional Federal tax incentives including pre-paid medical expense deductions and more.
In Addition to the financial benefits of living in a New Hampshire Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) like RiverWoods, Where to Retire touts some of the outdoor recreational perks of Portsmouth, and the entire NH Seacoast Region.
"With four distinct seasons, beaches five minutes away, fishing, boating and water sports in the local Piscataqua River and ski resorts and lakes an hour away, Portsmouth has been named a top outdoor town by Outside magazine," Explains Carol Jacobs.
The article in Travel and Leisure also describes Portsmouth's rich history and takes a look at the some of the city's many holiday traditions including the Candlelight Stroll at the Strawberry Banke Museum. The Candlelight Stroll features historic homes in holiday lights, costumed performers and hundreds of luminarias.
Luminarias are also a breathtaking sight to see here in Exeter on Christmas eve. For more information on the Exeter area, viewour 'Seacoast Life' page.
