Hampton ©
Hampton is a town in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, United States. Step off the beaten path and head to Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House and Abacus. PANACHE FINE JEWELRY AND ART GALLERY and Sea Space Marine Discovery Center will appeal to museum buffs. Explore Hampton's surroundings by going to Nubble Lighthouse (in York), Ogunquit (Perkins Cove, Marginal Way Walkway, &more) and Provincetown (Dolphin & Whale Watching, Herring Cove Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: stroll through Wells Beach, contemplate the long history of Strawbery Banke Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Hampton Beach State Park.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Hampton trip builder site.

Des Moines to Hampton is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Des Moines to Hampton due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Des Moines in July, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Hampton: temperatures range from °F by day to °F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to travel to Gorham.
