Ask A Question About This Scenic Drive!

The Colonial NH Seacoast Ride starts in Portsmouth New Hampshire, one of the greatest port cities of the 18th and early 19th century, which still has a working waterfront, along with a historic downtown with a traditional New England seacoast look and feel.

 

In Portsmouth, take Rt. 1B, which begins in Portsmouth's historic district, over the causeway to New Castle. This narrow route winds around the island town of New Castle NH, past the grand Wentworth-by-the-Sea and two early military fortifications, Fort Stark, Fort Dearborn and Fort Constitution; the latter was the site of the first aggressive act of the American Revolution and also home of the famous haunted Portsmouth Lighthouse.

When Rt. 1B connects with Rt. 1A, turn south through Rye and North Hampton to Hampton; along the way you'll find Odiorne State Park and a series of State Parks with oceanfront beaches. In Hampton Beach, take Rt. 101 to Rt. 1 through Hampton Falls and Rt. 84, one of the region's earliest roads. It will take you through Kensington NH to Rt. 150 and Exeter, one of the four original towns in colonial New Hampshire and the state capitol during the Revolutionary War. From there, follow Rt. 27 along the original 18th century route back to Hampton NH.
