Getting Around

Follow Route 1A/Ocean Boulevard down the New Hampshire coastline and you'll pass through Wallis Sands, Rye North Beach, Rye Beach, Hampton, and finally arrive at Seabrook Beach. Go any further south and you're in Massachusetts. New Hampshire's 17 miles of coastline is the shortest of any of the US coastal states. It's a beautiful drive, albeit a short one. From Portsmouth, you're a mere 45 minutes from Boston and Portland and about 30 minutes from Gunstock Ski Mountain.

Activities & Sightseeing

New Hampshire's seacoast is packed with fun things to do year-round. Shops, restaurants, and community events are all found in quaint downtowns throughout the area, but you don't want to miss a chance to explore Downtown Dover or Downtown Portsmouth. Love to golf? Greenland's golf courses are some of the best courses along the entire New Hampshire seacoast. Craving an adventure on the water? Launch your boat from Chapman's Landing in Stratham to venture into the Great Bay. And what coastal sightseeing would be complete without a visit to iconic lighthouses? Snap a photo of the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse or take an excursion boat past the White Island Lighthouse.

Towns & Communities

Ranging from small fishing villages to bustling port cities, New Hampshire's seacoast communities offer their own distinct lifestyles. Portsmouth, for instance, is a popular vacation destination because of its easy access to highways, its terrific downtown, and its busy harbor. New Castle, on the other hand, is a small island community that is a hidden gem nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Piscataqua River. New Hampshire's seacoast communities are full of charm, history, and personality, so we highly recommend you explore them all!

museums and historic sites

Its Local History

Portsmouth lays claim to being the third oldest city in the United States and is steeped in history dating to well before the American Revolution of 1776. In fact, Portsmouth and many other New Hampshire seacoast towns were settled in the early 1600s! If you're eager to experience life as it once was centuries ago, stop by the Phillips Exeter Academy, established in the late 1700s; Dover Cotton Factory, an 1800s warehouse that has since been converted to first-class office space; and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, the nation’s oldest shipyard.
