Welcome to The Square

What is The Square?
A magazine celebrating the uniqueness, creativity and beauty that are integral to what makes Portsmouth and the Seacoast region a special place to live and visit.

If you’ve seen The Square around town, you’ll recognize the full-color professional photography and sharp writing style of some of the Seacoast’s most talented authors and photographers. The magazine features articles about our community’s hard-working innovators, great places to shop and dine, and the eclectic mix of local and national culture that have made this area a great place to live and a popular destination for NH residents and visitors alike—scroll down to see articles from our most recent issue.

This is a publication by and for the greater Seacoast community, as well as the thousands of visitors we welcome to our part of New Hampshire every year. Thanks to our charter advertisers and other forward-thinking local businesses, we are able to widely distribute The Square with more than 10,000 complimentary copies available at locations in Portsmouth, Kittery, Dover, Rye, Exeter and surrounding towns. We estimate the readership of each issue to be in the neighborhood of 30,000 people who are highly interested in what’s going on in the Seacoast region.
