Seacoast Scenic Byway

15.4 miles: 0 hours, 32 minutes

Running along the New Hampshire coastline and then turning inland toward Portsmouth, SR 1A (Ocean Boulevard) takes you through picture-perfect New England towns. Seacoast Scenic Byway also affords lovely views of sandy beaches and deep blue waters.

A ribbon of charming communities wraps around the Atlantic Ocean along this picturesque route. For much of the drive, you’ll see beautiful homes that range in size from tiny to gargantuan and rocky shores that give way to sandy beaches. Parking is available right off the road in many places. During the summer, expect some congestion in the hopping Hampton Beach area.
