:: getting here
[ EDITOR’S NOTE: In March 2016, I moved from my studio’s beloved long-time home—over 26 years spent creating there!—at 125 Main Street (Rivermoor Landing) and am now operating, as I’ve always dreamed a freelancer could, from everywhere! I’m leaving these directions up, in case we decide to meet somewhere in Newmarket, as these directions will get you to our lovely downtown. ]
By Car, from the South: Take I-95 North to Exit 2 (Manchester/Exeter). Go through small toll booth, and bear right at fork onto Rte. 101 West. Follow 101 to 108/33 at Exit 11 (Exeter/Stratham). Bear right at end of ramp onto Rte. 108/33. Continue on 108/33 past strip malls and auto dealers to the Stratham Circle. At the Stratham Circle, bear left around the circle to continue on 108 North (towards Newmarket). Stay on 108 into downtown Newmarket (approximately ten minutes from the malls).
From the East and North: From Rte. 16 (Spaulding Turnpike), take Exit 8 (Dover/Durham). At end of ramp, head south toward Durham on Rte. 108 South. Or, if traveling on Rte. 4, take exit marked “108 Dover/Durham,” and head towards Durham on 108 South. Follow 108 through Madbury and/or Durham, bearing left at the fork in the town of Durham, and continuing on 108 South. (If you bear right at the fork, you enter the UNH campus.) Continue south on 108 (approximately four miles) into downtown Newmarket. As you enter the village, look to your left at the mill buildings.
From the West: Take Route 101 East toward Portsmouth and the Seacoast. Follow 101 to Rte. 125 North. Take 125 North to Rte. 155. At flashing red light (junctions of Rtes. 155 and 152), bear right onto 152 South. Follow 152 South into downtown Newmarket. At second flashing red light (Pao Cafe is on your left), bear left onto Main Street (108 North).
