Hampton Beach is best experienced during the summer months, although the off-season gives you plenty of time to walk along the beach and enjoy the scenery without a throng of people standing in your way. When the people are here though there are so many activities and festivals to keep you occupied youll wonder where the time has gone. As with most, the Hampton Beach festivals are a dieters worst nightmare. Fried and delicious seems to be the motto for most of the vendors. But dont worry youll be walking off a lot of those calories as you explore what this city all has to offer. To really experience Hampton Beach youll need to trek off land and go on a boat ride. There are some that are simply scenic tours and others that provide you with the thrill of deep-sea fishing. Make sure your land tour includes spending time on the very popular the Ocean Boulevard.
