RAZOR CLAM DIGGING
Razor clam digging is as much a family tradition as opening presents on Christmas
Throughout the holiday season, you may notice clusters of people digging on the ocean beaches. They’re not digging for gold, but something much tastier - clams!
At Seabrook, digging for clams is a popular leisure activity for families, groups of friends, and visitors to the region.
Because it’s fun and easy! You just get out here and do it.
Everyone who tries it loves it. And for many, it quickly becomes a family tradition.
Get your holiday shopping done early this year at Seabrook’s Annual Holiday Bazaar. Discover gifts for everyone on your list with a wide selection of souvenirs, ornaments, apparel, home items and more from a diverse group of vendors. This pop-up shop is the perfect way to support small businesses, find unique handmade gifts, and shop local all at the same time. Oh what fun it is to gather with family, friends, and neighbors to enjoy holiday shopping in a festive and fun setting.
BREAKFAST WITH SANTA
Santa Claus is coming to Town Hall on Sunday, December 16 for a yummy breakfast. Gather the whole family and head over to Town Hall for a decadent menu of farm fresh eggs, crispy bacon, buttermilk pancakes, and more. Adults can kick back and relax while sipping on sparkling mimosas while the kids are treated to cookies, hot cocoa, and photos with Santa… offering the perfect opportunity to tell ol’ Saint Nick all those last-minute Christmas wishes. This yuletide tradition is sure to put a smile on every child’s face and make memories that last a lifetime for the entire family.
Imagine waking up on Christmas morning in a beautiful beach home. It’s early and the kids are still asleep, so you turn on the cozy fireplace which lights up the stockings full of treats and gifts that hang on the mantle. Soon the room is buzzing with holiday cheer, the excitement in your children’s eyes, and the delicious smell of fresh coffee and homemade cinnamon rolls baking in the oven. You spend the rest of the morning basking in the wonderment of the holidays – surrounded by your family and friends. Christmas evening begins with an elaborate feast and ends with a peaceful walk along the quiet streets and down to the beach to enjoy the serenity that you can only get by spending the holidays at the beach.
