Summer On The Coast

As we head into the warmer months, all I’ve been dreaming about is my favorite time of year, in my favorite place on earth: summer time on the coast!

Prescott Park

I always look forward to the impressive musical productions put one every summer. There is nothing quite like watching a professional musical on an outdoor stage that overlooks the water. For details on this year’s show, The Little Mermaid, check out Prescott Park Arts Festival!

The Decks

Margaritas at Poco’s, lobster rolls at the River House, or drinks at Martingale Wharf, The Decks, as they’ve become known as, are a group of fantastic restaurants and bars in picturesque downtown Portsmouth. The Decks offer family friendly atmospheres, while still appealing to those looking for a night on the town. Make sure to swing by the Old Ferry Landing and grab a Jimmy Juice from my friend John!

Odiorne Point State Park

Nestled away on the shores in Rye, Odiorne Point is a great escape from your normal beach routine. Not only does this section of town house the Seacoast Science Center, but it also offers concerts, walking trails, beach access, and a playground for the kids.

Any Beach But Hampton Beach

Being so close to the beach was one of my favorite parts of growing up on the seacoast. Don’t get me wrong, Hampton Beach is great for beach goers who are lookng for more than just sand, but beach lovers who are solely in need of some sand and salty air, Jensen, Wallis Sands, or New Castle Commons are the places to go. It’s true that NH may have the shortest amount of coastlines in the country; we definitely make up for it!
