Hampton Beach has been
  named one of the Top 6 Beaches in the country based on a new article
  by the Weather Channel and Weather.com.

This is the first year
  that a New Hampshire Beach has made the Weather.com list of favorite beaches, a list that
  was compiled by readers of Weather.com.

 Among the things that
  people liked:  the small but lively beach scene, which includes more
  than 80 free concerts, fireworks shows and the sand castle
  contest, which draws master sand sculptors from all over the world to
  the beach each summer.  Hampton Beach State Park was also one
  of four beaches nationwide honored for having clean water quality in
  2011.  This designation was actually given to Hampton
  Beach four years in a row.
