Time spent by the coast always takes our breath away… Perhaps it’s the long summer days at the beach, the salty ocean breezes in the evenings, listening to the waves crashing on a quiet morning beach walk? Maybe it’s all of these moments that come together to create a feeling of effortless, carefree living that trickles into the shops, restaurants, and businesses that make Rye, New Hampshire such a special New Hampshire town.

So without further ado, take a peek at some places we love in beautiful, beach-y Rye!
