The New Hampshire Seacoast
The Seacoast Region is in southeastern New Hampshire and encompasses 18 miles of coastline directly along the Atlantic Ocean between Salisbury Massachusetts and Kittery Maine. Despite the limited stretch of coastline that lies directly on the Atlantic, when considering the shores of the tidal rivers, the Great Bay Estuary, and the Isles of Shoals the collective shoreline totals more than 238 miles. The region is known for its sandy beaches, historic ports, and many islands. Some towns date back 400 years and include Portsmouth, Hampton, Durham, Dover, Rochester, Exeter, Epping and Hampstead to name a few. The most historic city is Portsmouth as it was settled in 1623 and is the 3rd oldest city in the nation. The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard was the first naval shipyard in the country but is actually located close by in Kittery Maine.
