New Hampshire’s most visited beach received top ten honors for the Best Boardwalk in America by USA Today.

USA Today’s 10Best has crowned the Best Boardwalks for 2016 and Hampton Beach is #7. Hampton narrowly beat out their boardwalk brethren to the north, Old Orchard Beach which came in at #8.

Here’s what the beach experts at USA Today had to say about Hampton Beach:

While Hampton Beach doesn't have a boardwalk in the strictest sense of the term, it does have an ultra-wide sidewalk with a serious boardwalk vibe. Smells of pizza, waffle cones and cotton candy mingle with the sounds of booming music as swimsuit-wearing pedestrians amble by.

They speak the truth, and are only missing the smells of FRIED DOUGH that permeate the air. Am I right?

Congratulations to Hampton Beach for having one of the Best Boardwalks in America.
