THINGS TO DO IF THE SLOPES AREN’T FOR YOU

January 11, 2019 / Local News

 

Living in New England doesn’t always come with a love for snow. One of the draws to the Seacoast is certainly its close proximity to the mountains, but some of us prefer to conquer them in the warmer seasons. However, that doesn’t mean you should be hibernating all winter long – embrace it!

 

VISIT YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY

Get your kids excited about reading by making trips to the library when they’re feeling restless at home. Many libraries have events throughout the month – for both kids and adults!

 

Kittery’s Rice Public Library Events

Portsmouth Public Library Events

Wells Public Library Events
York Public Library Events

Historic Ogunquit Memorial Library

 

COZY UP WITH A COFFEE AT A LOCAL CAFE

Give yourself some personal time with your thoughts rather than taking your cup to go. Some spots near us that we love include Lil’s Cafe in Kittery, La Maison Navarre and  Cup of Joe in Portsmouth, and the Greenery Cafe in Ogunquit – but there are plenty to try all over the Seacoast – mix it up!

 

CHECK OUT SOME LIVE MUSIC

We are fortunate to have many talented musicians in the area who often perform at local bars and restaurants throughout the winter. Check out the Blue Mermaid in Kittery, the Front Porch and Jonathan’s in Ogunquit, and 3S Artspace, the Music Hall, the Press Room, the Dolphin Striker, and a bunch of other places in Portsmouth!

 

EXPLORE THE SEACOAST SCIENCE CENTER

The Seacoast Science Center in Rye, NH is located in Odiorne State Park. They have programs scheduled throughout the winter and keep a calendar of the week ahead here.

 

TOUR ART GALLERIES & LOCAL MUSEUMS

Take a visit to the Ogunquit Museum of American Art (OMAA), and pair it with a cocktail or coffee at the Cliff House.

 

Explore the Strawbery Banke Museum – Your loved ones can skate Puddle Duck Pond while you cozy up inside at the Figtree Cafe!

 

Meander the Mofatt-Ladd House or Don Gorvett Piscataqua Fine Arts and follow it with a warm dinner at the Oar House on Ceres Street.

 

Visit the New Hampshire Children’s Museum in Dover and the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine in Portland, both in close proximity to shops and local eateries to enjoy while you’re there!
