Things to Do with Kids in the Seacoast

by Porcupine Real Estate 02/20/2020

The Seacoast of New Hampshire is great for day trips or overnights. Cute towns border the ocean, with fun shops and restaurants. While most adults love spending time in the Seacoast, it can be harder to please kids. Here are some of activities that kids will love and parents won’t hate:

  • Strawbery Banke is a great place to go for a historical experience. Kids will love seeing the old stores, and won’t even think of it being a boring educational outing, while adults will have a great time learning from the experienced guides. The living history museum covers four centuries worth of history, from colonial days to World War II.
  • Prescott Park is full of gorgeous flowers, and is perfect for kids to run around and play while parents admire the gardens. There are plenty of grills and picnic tables, along with a boat dock, making it the perfect place for a picnic lunch while watching the waters. During the summer, there is the Prescott Arts Festival, where you can enjoy movies under the stars.
  • Water Country is a water park based in the Seacoast. There are many rides for those more daring, and for the kids, there’s a play place including a pirate ship, bubble bay, and an octopus to climb on and slide  down.
  • Albacore Park houses a prototype submarine, the USS Albacore. You can learn the history of the submarine, and get to see the actual thing at the park. This attraction is perfect for ship-loving kids and adults alike.
  • Pierce Island has activities for everyone. For the kids, there is a pool, along with playgrounds, while the history buffs can read about Fort Washington, which was based on the island. Walking trails connect waterfront overlooks, making it the perfect place to enjoy the sunset over Portsmouth.
