Friday, May 8, 2015 - Opening to Closing

The Seacoast is celebrating the beginning of the Summer Season

by throwing a party and YOU ARE INVITED!


It's about sunshine and warm days and evenings. 

It's about the decks overlooking the Piscataqua River, and the al fresco dining throughout the Seacoast. 

And it's about the restaurants, shops, hotels, services, activities and attractions that are

welcoming you to kick off YOUR Summer on the Seacoast.
