Salisbury is a small, coastal town and popular summer resort beach situated on the Atlantic Ocean. It is the northernmost town on the North Shore of Massachusetts along the New Hampshire border. It is home to the new Salisbury Beach Boardwalk, full of souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, arcades and panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.
coastal history meets modern relaxation
Salisbury has much to offer as it is drenched in history, natural beauty and fun attractions for all. Salisbury was once territory of the Pentucket tribe of Pennacook Indians and was later settled by the English in 1638. Lying along the northern banks of the Merrimack River, the town is home to Salisbury Beach State Reservation, a park which includes the entire seacoast as well as the Ram Island and Carr Island State Wildlife Management Areas.
Salisbury lies along the northern end of U.S. Route 1 and has direct access to I-95 and I-495. Salisbury is an ideal location running along the coast with easy access to Portsmouth, Hampton Beach, Boston and so much more!
Family Fun Year Round
Salisbury is not just a summer attraction. With a booming business industry, a top ranked elementary school, and family-friendly fun all year round! The famous “Fairy + Gnome Walk” at Pettingill Farm each year is something you don’t want to miss! Then take a walk down memory lane at Joe’s Playland with the nostalgic feel of the arcade that has been a landmark on the beach for over 90 years!
