Seacoast Staycation Ideas for 2022: School Vacation Weeks


Sticking around for school vacation weeks this year? We have tons of Seacoast Staycation Ideas for 2022. Let’s make vacation fun again!

  1. Visit a museum. The Seacoast is within driving (or train or bus) distance from several amazing museums. Best of all? You can pick up a discounted museum pass at most local Seacoast libraries. Just be sure to plan ahead! Some of our favorites:
  2. Hit the Slopes! Whether you’re teaching your kid how to ski or you’re seasoned pros, the Seacoast has several great mountains within an hour and a half! 
  3. Check Our Calendar. If there’s something fun happening on the Seacoast, you better believe it’s on the Seacoast Moms’ Calendar
  4. Hang with PAW Patrol: This is super cool if you’re into pups on a mission. And obviously we are. 
    1. Our Sister Site Boston Moms has more details.
  5. Go on a Dino Safari. Just an hour away in Boston, this trip will be worth it for a dinosaur loving kid! 
  6. Go Ice Skating near you. We like these three spots. 
    1. Ski rink in Somersworth. 
    2. Puddle Duck Pond in Portsmouth. 
    3. Jackson’s Landing in Durham. 
  7. Get Outside! Even if it’s cold. 
    1. Try snowshoeing with your kids
    2. Channel Elsa and hit the Ice Castles

What are you doing over your break?!

Allison’s mission in life is to notice the extraordinary in the ordinary. Her commitment to see beyond what’s in front of her was fostered by her degree in Philosophy and Theology from Boston College. Allison’s a book nerd and credits her parents and inspiring English teachers for her love of reading and writing. She went on to earn her Master in Pastoral Ministry from Boston College and then taught high school for several years, both in New England and San Francisco. After moving from San Francisco to Boston with her engineer husband, she began teaching yoga and working as a social media marketing consultant. Now a Portsmouth resident, she spends most of her days with her three daughters (she does not have enough arms) and does her best to find the bliss amidst the endless snacking, dance parties and tiaras. With all the beautiful chaos in her life, she’s grateful to have her partner-in-crime (husband Charlie) and fellow movie quote enthusiast alongside her. Her passion for writing first drew her to Seacoast Moms as a contributing writer, and her desire to connect moms of the Seacoast with businesses who serve and interest them led her to become SM’s owner. Being able to write about the ordinary grace present in motherhood, while interacting with incredible Seacoast business owners is a dream come true.
