    The New Hampshire seacoast is fantastic. Lots of places to eat and spots to pull over and enjoy the view and plain old fashioned people watching.

    Awesome beach! I would suggest parking further from the beach to save on 🅿 fees. Just don't except hit water no mater what time of the year.

    Save $$, get a bit of exercise: don't park at the meters, but at one of the several private lots who offer all day parking for $5!
