Several restaurants are offering extended Happy Hour specials, and there will be plenty of specials on Sam Adams pints, rose, mojitos and Portsmouth Punch at participating restaurants and bars. And you will want to hit the shops when you hit the decks, with specials on sweatshirts, sunglasses, tote bags and more – everything you need for the summer season!

    Local inns and hotels are offering special Hit The Decks overnight rates with welcome amenities and upgrades. Please visit www.HitTheDecksPortsmouth.com for offers and up-to-date information. Hit The Decks will take place rain or shine.
