Local Events and Attractions of the Hampton Beach Area
Hampshire’s slice of Atlantic Ocean waterfront is slight – only 18 miles of shoreline. But that shoreline, and
the entire Seacoast region, is a delight. The uncontested highlight of the area is the beautifully groomed,
family-friendly Hampton Beach. The Hampton and Seabrook Harbours to the south offer daily whale watching and fishing
excursions. To the south of the NH coast, you'll find the quaint 18th century waterfront community of Newburyport
Massachusetts and to the north, the hip little city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
