Hampton can be pretty commercial and busy during the summer but go in late September on and it's a different story. During September most places are still open with less crowds. Things button up in October but the beach is still picnic perfect.

Beaches out in New Hampshire can get chilly in October, but they are still gorgeous. Loved the area.

Wonderful family beach away from all the hub bub. A place to relax and spend the day with family and friends.

New Hampshire really has a lot to offer, and this beach is one of those beautiful sites. Lots to offer on the same street as well.

I have been coming here for years and it's always a great time. I love the water and the sand. The rocks are fun to climb on. And the boardwalk is the best. They is so much to see & do here. If you're trying to find something fun to do during the summer, I recommend Hampton Beach :)

My husband and I loved our long, leisurely walk along Hampton Beach. It was serene and peaceful in this off-season time when much of the boardwalk establishments were closed. We covered almost 7 miles all together and treasured every minute of it.

Great place to go watch the waves come in and catch some sun. Plenty of things to do also near bye. It can be crowed on a good day.

Beautiful beach, soft, fine, clean, long sandy beach. Lots of shops and restaurants on other side of the street. Great family vacation spot.

I am Canadian and 1965 was the 1st summer I got a sunburn on this beautiful beach. I have enjoyed the place for more than 30 of the last 50 years and I don't get tired of it. It's true that some businesses on the "boardwalk" are in need of a cosmetic touch but I think that is what makes... More
