Default Getting to the Ocean Beaches from the Lakes Region!

Hi
My wife and I just bought a home in Tuftonboro NH and being from Long Island NY originally we would still like to make our way to the Ocean on occasion. Who can tell me the best and/or the closest beaches from here. Looks like Maine, but where? Thanks everyone!

I'd recommend trying out these two different routes on days where the traffic would not be heavy near the coast (such as this weekend with these fantastic beach days). Best time to scope out the beaches are weekdays or anytime during the fall or spring.

1. Route 16 south to Portsmouth and take 1A over to Rye, North Hampton and Hampton beaches. Great Beaches!

2. Route 16 south to Sanbornville. Take Route 109 through Acton and Sanford over to Wells, Moody, Footbridge or Ogunquit Beaches. Wells and Ogunquit have the most public parking. All of these beaches are great. York Beach as well.


Either way it will be 90 minutes or so from Tuftonboro.

171 will get you over to 16 and cut down a little of that time, but it's still an hour to the beach ..
