Hampton is all around a great town with something for everyone. It's a great town to grow up in that cares a lot about the safety of their residents, their education, and their enjoyment. With Hampton being right on the ocean and just a short drive away from the White Mountains, there is always something to do. It's also a very popular tourist destination for families to vacation on Hampton Beach. You can relax next to the ocean, go to the arcades, and try some of the best seafood, all without spending a lot of money. With lots of opportunities for entertainment, enjoyment, and growth, Hampton is a great place to be.

Hampton is a good area that is able to provide the local feel of a tight knit community, along with having the most amount of shoreline in New Hampshire. This provides an incredibly helpful opportunity to provide an area where studying by the beach is something only a handful of college students are able to say.
In the winter, especially inland or close to north beach, the town is nice.
Unfortunately, the tourists from Massachusetts really destroy the quality of life throughout Hampton for the entire summer. The beach is overrated, trashy, crowded, and noisy. Young men drive around in a loop, blasting rap music, showing off whatever ridiculous work they had done to their car (lights underneath, sounds as if the muffler fell off, etc.)
It's really a shame, because the year round residents in town are great. Unfortunately they are the minority once it's warm enough to even stand outside.
