Hampton Beach April 16th, 2012!?

Yes. April 16th. Patriots Day. Mass Spring Vacation. A packed Hampton Beach!

It is true. Traffic, at 10AM this morning was already backed up from the beach to the overpass of Rte 95. The beaches are mobbed and the weather is too good to be true, but it is so get out and enjoy the beautiful weather while you can. Because all who know NH know that in any 5 minute period the weather can change.

Fried Food, French Fries, Ice Cream, Pizza and all the favorite Beach Foods are available. The arcades ant T Shirt Shops are open…so plan your overnight stay for this unusually warm beach weather week! Be sure to visit our hotel and motel page at www.hamptonbeach.com.

Corgie Convention

Calling all Corgie’s…The annual Corgie Convention is today at Jeness Beach, North Hampton NH, at 2PM. If you are a Corgie fan or owner, imagine the delightful sight of seeing many, many Corgie’s running around on the beach. “I” heard last year there were around 40 Corige’s laughing and playing together.

13th Annual Hampton Beach Penguin Plunge

13th Annual NH Penguin Plunge at Hampton Beach
This popular fundraising event is now in it’s thirteenth year and is more popular than ever! Jay and I watched them Plunge back in 2009 and we were very impressed that this group of nutty dedicated people actually jumped into the frigid Atlantic Ocean. It was pretty hysterical to watch as some of them were in skimpy bathing suits while others were dressed up in costumes. We took a bunch of pictures and I even attempted to take some video albeit the video is pretty bad since I could hardly shoot over the very excited crowd of onlookers.
