I moved away from southern New Hampshire over 20 years ago, and besides my mom there are two things I miss most. One is Pawtuckaway state park (Devils Den and North Mountain)
And the other is Adams Point.
I park at the causeway, head toward...More
I saw loons and beautiful striations on rocks lining the perimeter. It's lovely to walk and observe the wonderful geological formations as a result of the river's erosion. A shorebird birder's paradise.

It's off the beaten path and Bay Road itself is a very interesting drive, but it can be an excellent recreational area with a put-in for kayaking, paths for bird watching and just plain relaxation overlooking Great Bay.
