New Hampshire Seacoast
Rye is a beautiful scenic small town located right on the coast of New Hampshire. We have the smallest coastline in the country, and it’s just beautiful! As New England is known for, we have some rocky coastal areas as well as some beautiful sandy stretches of beach, too.
Rye coastline along Route 1-A
Our coastline offers some wonderful scenery and beautiful peaceful settings along the coastal route of 1-A which follows the ocean. You'll find great fishing spots, as well as whale-watching trips and deep-sea fishing cruises in Rye Harbor.
The drive along Route 1-A, Ocean Boulevard, is so tranquil it just really soothes your soul. There are some truly stunning homes along this drive, and many were built as summer homes in the Victorian times. Today, many of them are now used as year-round residences. Rye became the summer playground for the rich and famous during the early 1900's for many years. Many of the local residents today can trace their roots many generations back to the early settlers of Rye.
