The Day Trip Of A Lifetime You Can Only Take In New Hampshire
It’s cold and snowy in New Hampshire right now which mean it’s the perfect time to start planning the ultimate New Hampshire day trip for this summer! The Isles of Shoals is an amazing oasis off the coast of New Hampshire that few state residents have ever explored. Make 2017 the year you check out these amazing islands.
The Isles of Shoals are a maritime oasis that lie about six miles off the coast of Portsmouth.
Your day trip starts at the Isles of Shoals Steam Ship Company in Portsmouth.
There you can board a ferry that will take you to star island, the biggest island on the New Hampshire side of the Shoals.
The ride out to the shoals is half the fun. As you leave Portsmouth Harbor you'll have amazing views of New Hampshire's largest port.
You'll pass by lighthouses, where you may even see some seals sunbathing on the rocks.
Once you arrive on Star Island, you're free to explore the tiny town that has plenty of charm.
You can familiarize yourself with the island's unique architecture and history.
Or set out for a paddle along its rocky edges.
Maybe you want to put your toes in the sand and admire the natural beauty.
Or look from the grassy knolls out to sea.
A highlight of the trip is watching the sun set over the ocean, a rare opportunity on the east coast.
And one that you won't soon forget!
