5 Things to Do on the Seacoast of New Hampshire This Winter

There are no rules for your New Hampshire getaway. You can spend the entire getaway lounging around our Inn, enjoying the cozy and elegant spaces, or you can do what most couples do and head out for a wonderful adventure somewhere on the Seacoast.

There are so many things to do on the Seacoast of New Hampshire, even in the winter, that you can stay as busy as you want. Whether taking scenic drives, heading out for fun in the snow, or browsing the shops in downtown Exeter or other Seacoast towns, we know you’ll love every second of your upcoming New Hampshire getaway this winter. 

We’ve curated a list below of some of our favorite ways for couples to have some fun on the Seacoast in the winter, but it’s just a taste of what awaits you at our luxury Inn! 

  1. You can’t enjoy a New Hampshire getaway at our luxurious hotel without walking into downtown Exeter and enjoying the shops and boutiques you’ll find there. A few favorites include Whirlygigs Toy Shop, Water Street Bookstore, The Colophon Book Shop, and The Chocolatier. When you need something warm to drink, don’t miss a stop at the Exeter Coffee Company.
  2. Another great way to spend your New Hampshire getaway is by taking a romantic walk through Exeter’s scenic landscapes. A favorite place for that is the Swasey Parkway. You can also walk on the historic and beautiful Phillips Exeter Academy Campus in Exeter. 
  3. The Seacoast is rich with historic attractions, including places like the Strawberry Banke Museum in Portsmouth. This charming museum gets even more fun in the winter with ice skating at Puddle Duck Pond.
  4. We’re surrounded by scenic natural beauty everywhere you turn on the Seacoast, so we encourage you to spend at least some of your New Hampshire getaway in the beautiful outdoors. A few favorite places to do that include Odiorne State Park and Pawtuckaway State Park. Both are fantastic for hiking and swimming in the summer, but they are perfect for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. 
  5. Wine and dine your sweetheart at one of the best restaurants in Exeter, NH.
