The Seacoast

TRAVEL GUIDE

Loading...

New Hampshire's 18-mile stretch of coastline packs in a wealth of scenery and diversions. The honky-tonk of Hampton Beach gets plenty of attention—good and bad—but first-timers are often surprised by the significant portion of the shoreline that remains pristine, especially through the town of Rye. This section begins in the regional hub, Portsmouth, cuts down the coast to the beaches, branches inland to the prep-school town of Exeter, and runs back up north through Dover, Durham (home to the University of New Hampshire), and Rochester; from here it's a short drive to the Lakes Region.
