5 Ways to Stay Entertained on the New Hampshire Seacoast

After a day of sun, fun, surf and sand this summer on the New Hampshire seacoast, where to next? Perhaps you want to laugh it up with your crew at a comedy show, catch the latest theater production or check out a band on the beach? Here are just a few of the fun events you’ll want to keep on your radar as you plan your trip.

Hampton Beach Fireworks Kicking off Memorial Weekend, Hampton Beach lights up the night with a spectacular fireworks display every Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. A lovely way to spend a summer evening, you may want to bring snacks or nosh on fresh seafood nearby first, then head back to the beach, spread out your blanket on the soft sand, and enjoy the show to the soothing sound of waves crashing. What else pairs well with fireworks? Catching a concert at the Casino Ballroom.

Monday Night Movies in Prescott Park What do Star Wars, Top Gun and Jaws have in common? These blockbusters will all be playing up on the big screen at Prescott Park as part of the Monday Night Movie Series this summer. So pack up your picnic and be there by dusk!

RiverHouse Restaurant Concert Series at Prescott Park A great mix of artists will also play Prescott Park every Wednesday night at 7 p.m. and this incredible summer series wraps up with the one and only Mavis Staples.   

The Music Hall Between the Historic Theater and The Music Hall Loft, you will not have a problem finding a thought-provoking film to discuss with your friends over cocktails, or a soulful live performance to move and groove to.  

Seacoast Repertory Theater If you and your pals like a solid side of giggles with your summer, the Seacoast Repertory Theater’s mainstage performance of Monty Python’s Spamalot is just the ticket.

No show’s complete without a drink and a nice dinner (or at least a little nibble). Luckily the Seacoast has some of the finest food and drink the state has to offer. But don’t take our word for it. Read all about it over at National Geographic. And here are Trip Advisor’s 2017 Top Picks in Portsmouth.
