On this episode of Weekends with Yankee, we join cohost Richard Wiese in South Hamilton, Massachusetts, as he visits Myopia Polo Club, the oldest active polo club in the country. Then, we travel with cohost Amy Traverso to Freedom, New Hampshire, as she gets outside her comfort zone and into the wild for a survival lesson that includes what to pack and how to build a fire and shelter. From there, we head out to the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard, where we explore the African American Heritage Trail and learn about the storied history of African Americans on the island. Before leaving, we take a dip in the ocean for a workout with the Inkwell Beach Polar Bears, a predominantly black community of early-rising exercisers ranging from 4 to over 90 years old. And in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, we learn the story of their legendary music hall.
Walkability is the name of the game in the seaport town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where big-city offerings blend seamlessly with coastal New England charm. Learn our picks for the best things to do, eat, and where to stay in Portsmouth.
