Quality of Life, New England Style!

Newmarket, fronting on the Lamprey River and Great Bay, is part of the undiscovered Seacoast Region of New Hampshire. It offers the relaxation of a small town, yet it is just minutes away from the activities of the State University, Phillips Exeter Academy and the cosmopolitan charms of Portsmouth with its outstanding dining and cultural events. With white church steeples, old mill buildings, a dammed river, park land with nature walks, and good road access to beaches, skiing and golfing, Newmarket is an ideal place to work and live. In fact, some of America's most successful businesses began and continue to grow in and around Newmarket. If success breeds success, Newmarket can take pride in being an incubator for new ideas and business concepts.

Access & Transportation

The old New England joke that "you can't get there from here" certainly does not apply to the town of Newmarket. Whether it be via highway, rail, air or water, not only can you get people and products from here to virtually anywhere else, one can do it with ease. By land, Interstate 95 is the primary access to the town from north and south. State Highway Routes 108, 101, 4 and 33 provide convenient access from adjoining areas.

The Boston & Maine railroad provides limited supplemental rail freight service. The line runs along Route 108 which borders one of Newmarket's major industrial parks.

Air transportation offers a number of choices. Boston's Logan Airport, the region’s largest, is 50 miles to the south and provides both domestic and international passenger and freight service through a variety of carriers. 35 miles east is the Manchester Airport, which has undergone a $65 million expansion and also offers freight and passenger service. Less than 14 miles away, the former Pease Air Base, now Pease International Tradeport, promises additional air service in the future. Smaller airports in Rochester, NH (17 miles) and Portland, Me ( 60 miles) offer additional options.

Transportation by water is also just 14 miles away at the often overlooked Port of New Hampshire in Portsmouth. Easily accessed by truck, highway, and rail, it is the closest United States point to Europe and the only ice-free deepwater port north of Boston. Plans for a major expansion of the port are currently underway.

Public bus transportation is available with destinations throughout neighboring Seacoast towns and the main campus of the University of New Hampshire in Durham.
