This is one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen. We were going to a concert at the ballroom but we had time to walk the boardwalk beforehand. Everything was so clean, even the public restrooms. We were lucky enough to be there right after the sandcastle competition so we got to see all the amazing entries. There are... More

The water is freezing even in August, but its a great beach, the boardwalk is beautiful and immaculate. The free concerts and free fireworks are great. We have not been there on Monday for movie night but wish I was. WE often go to the Ashmont for breakfast its good and not too expensive. We LOVE the Purple Urchin, its... More

I have been going since my childhood even though I live in Kansas. My mom is from New Hampshire and Hampton Beach is full of great memories and a beautiful place to visit.

this is one of the cleaner beaches I've been too. It's also very close to state maintained bathrooms that are very clean and also the main street where all the food vendors are. Very long beach so easy to find a spot to sit and enjoy the beach. Fireworks on Wednesday night were beautiful.

Hampton beach is very clean and family friendly. Nightly free concerts with various bands. Approximately a 20 minute fireworks display on Wednesday nights. The beach prides itself on it visible police presence at all times. I love Hampton Beach

The View is absolute amazing. The water was externally clean. We stayed at Breakers by the Sea across the street. I can't wait to return to NH again!

Once again the Sand Sculpture competition has brought in people who create magic. Best tip is to grab a parking spot as soon as you find one, even if it is a spot when you first get to town, you may walk a bit more, but you will not have to face the frustration of traffic and a long wait... More

Hampton Beach is our favorite day trip getaway. We come here several times of year with our children. I remember coming here as a child with my parents. We live approximately 45 minutes away. The earlier in the day that you get there, the cheaper the parking is. Every Wednesday during the summer there are fireworks. Daily during the summer... More
