Hampton Fall's Location
Hampton Falls might be best described as "convenient country coastal living." In terms of convenience, Hampton Falls offers residents commuting south to Massachusetts a more manageable drive than most other Southern New Hampshire towns - it's about 45 miles to Boston.
The town has been careful to protect itself against over development of this predominately residential community. In fact, a conforming building lot requires 2 acres of land to help maintain the rural feel that residents enjoy in Hampton Falls today. Aside from a small stretch of businesses along Route 1, the town is zoned pretty much exclusively residential.
Driving along scenic Route 88 (also known as Exeter Road), you'll come across a thriving apple orchard called Applecrest Farm - a regional tourist draw for fall-time apple pickers and the state of New Hampshire's oldest and largest orchard.
Ironically, you'd have to go back to to mid 18th century to find industry at it's peak in Hampton Falls. Due to the town's abundance of salt marshes (which produce premium hay), 5 mills and 3 dams along the Hampton Falls and Taylor Rivers, Hampton Falls was actually the most industrialized town in NH at one point.
Residents also have easy access to local beaches, including Hampton Beach and Seabrook Beach, both of which are just a few miles from town.
