Family activities in Hampton Beach?

by Jefie

Hi there!

I'm going camping with my niece and nephew (10 and 15 years old) in Hampton Beach this summer. Any family activities (rides, slides, mini-golf, etc.) you could recommend in that area? We don't mind driving around a bit. Thanks!

Hi Isa,

Hampton Beach is great for the beach itself, it gets a bit rowdy on Friday and Saturday nights though. Teenagers hang out there until all hours of the night. If you are camping you should be just fine. Hotels there tend to be loud. There is a concert hall right on "the strip" called the Hapton Beach Casino. Downstairs is an arcade. Tehre are a lot of little shops there. If you want a quieter experience, go North! Places like North Hampton and Rye offer a much quiter (in my opinion) beach experience. There are boats that leave the shore that go to The Isles of Shoals, whale watches, and fishing boats. These are great for family and not too expensive. I usually leave from Rye Harbor. There is no place in New Hampshire you can't get to in 4 hours or less, Maine is also right up the road, maybe 45 mins away. The entire NH coastline is only about a 40 minute drive. I have a list of things to do in New Hampshire on my website if that helps ( Lake Winnipesaukee is also a lot of fun. There is a large boat there too. I think a family of four is like $100 USD for a trip across the lake. The mountains are also great in the summer. Places like the Kancamagus Highway is a nice drive, great for getting away from the heat. :) Have fun!!

I grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts, & we use to vacation on Hampton Beach every summer. There are a ton of places for the type of family activities that you desire. Just walk down the boardwalk & you'll find them with ease. I was also suggest the following places:

1. Whale Watching with Eastman's Fishing & Platypus Tours in nearby Seabrook.
2. The James House, a National Historic Landmark
3. Tuck Museum Complex

Re: Family activities in Hampton Beach?

by tdobb should be quite useful. The waterslides are always fun for the kids, but there is a much better park in portsmouth called water country. Basically the beach is food and video games not much mor but then again it is the beach so you should enjoy the water and sand.

Travel Tips for Hampton Beach

Sunscreen is a must

by katjeanna

anything go during the summer- swimsuit, towel and plenty of sunscreen! dont forget the flip flops too. the boardwalk is wood. disposable cameras are expensive, bring your own there is a grocery store about a mile away... dont buy the necessities at the beach!

solitude amidst the crowds

by bogblogger

Hampton Beach just teems with people during the summer. So to get away from the crowds, I recommend going across the marsh to the abandoned rail line. From Rte 1, take either Depot Rd or Brimmers Lane in Hampton Falls.

"Quiet Times"

Hampton beach is really crowded during the summer. The best time (In my opinion) to come is off season. No, there isn't much to do but its quiet, and you can have the beach to yourself and still manage to find a bite to eat in one of the few restaurants that remain open year round.

Hampton Beach, NH is a cornucopia of activity, filling up tourists with their hearts desires for the summer months. As soon as the snow melts, tourists begin an annual migration to the four miles or so of beach that Hampton NH has to offer. Hampton Beach is easily accessible from all areas north, south, and west, which makes it a popular place to tan away the summer months. The traffic along the beach can be a test of ones patience but the rewards are great once you’ve parked your car in one of the numerous parking lots, or metered parking spaces

"Hampton Beach Information"

The cliché, “There is something for everyone,” is one that seems befitting of Hampton Beach. Arcades, numerous clothing stores, more food than you could imagine, including take out or upscale seating type restaurants is all readily available on the boardwalk, which lines the main beach area. The chamber of commerce is located in the heart of the beach, where you can obtain information about the area, acquire brochures pertaining to other activities off the beach and even buy lottery tickets.
The Sea Shell Stage is the center of attraction during the summer evenings. Each night from July to September, live bands perform. There is no admission charge, and plenty of seating is available. Everyone’s musical desires are tended to. Polka, big band or classical music lovers get their fix as well as people into rock, jazz, oldies and even disco! Wednesday night at the Sea Shell Stage is reserved for the band, “The Continentals,” who get the crowd all hyped up for the weekly fireworks display.
The Casino Ballroom is a top-notch venue from which many popular musical artists and entertainers visit during the summer months. Many comedians perform at the Casino such as Wayne Brady and Dr. John Valby, and even sporting events are held there, such as ESPN Boxing and E.C.W. Wrestling
Nighttime is when the clubs start hopping. There are numerous clubs on the beach, which provide live music also. So, if you prefer to get your groove on with a cocktail in your hand, then perhaps Saturdays’, Reggae night at LaBec Rouge is the place for you. Dance and hip hop music are always playing at Guido Murphy’s or one of the many dance clubs located right on Ocean Boulevard. Quiet, romantic dinners at night can be spent atop the Sea Ketch where a solo balladeer will woo you while you eat.
The entire beach area is lined with accommodations ranging from luxurious, all-inclusive hotels to cottages in which self-sufficiency is the key. Regardless of the style of accommodation that you choose, there are ample places to stay for everyone’s individual needs.
For those who might be interested in learning a little of Hampton Beach’s history, “The Platypus,” an amphibious vehicle provides one hour-long tours which start off on land and take you right into the ocean! You’ll know “Platy” is nearby when you hear her horn, (from every corner of the beach) wailing the tune, “La Cucaracha.” It’s a fun and educational adventure for people of all ages.
If deep-sea fishing or a whale watch is your thing, both can be from Al Gauron’s fishing fleet, located at Hampton Harbor just before the bridge leading into Seabrook. But if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground while you fish, just cast your line right off of the Hampton to Seabrook Bridge!
There are few places on earth where you can witness beautiful sunrises and breathtaking sunsets all in the same place, but at Hampton Beach you can. Early risers can catch the first glimpses of the sun peeking out over the oceans horizon in glorious shades of red, pink or purple while sitting on a wooden bench, sipping on your morning cup of coffee. At dusk, one only has to look into the many acres of salt march to witness an even more phenomenal display of Mother Nature at her finest. Sunsets over the marsh are indeed grand.
The town of Hampton will be performing a multi million-dollar renovation to the Beach area over the next few years. The entire boardwalk area will be rejuvenated, sidewalks enlarged, Sea Shell Stage remodeled and the Chamber of Commerce and restroom area will even get a new look. Soon, Hampton Beach will no longer be a local attraction but will become an international destination. This is great news for visitors and residents, but in the mean time, Hampton Beach has been and will continue to be a great place where friends and family can gather to have a great vacation

Sand Castles (i.e. Sand Sculptures)

by where2next

The Hampton Beach sand castle contest was held in late June. There were about 12 sand castles built. The event is by invitation only and the contestants were given 21 hours (7 hours over 3 days) to build their sculptures. The occurs during the week and it is possibly to go and watch them being built.

Here is a link for sand castle events: Sand Castle Cental

This shows the row of sand sculptures. They were all varied in their theme.

This was the winning one. The emcee mentioned that it supposed to represent a lady who is beginning a new venture.

This was truly a sand castle that was no where like the ones built as kids with upside-down pails.

This one was interesting as it showed a kid reading a book, and in the background the book is coming alive with the characters which in this case are a Knight and a Dragon.

All the contestants get together and create a central area which has a theme. This year the theme was Lord of the Rings. Also, there was a Ronald Reagen sculpture given his passing just prior to the event.
