NH 1A extends Massachusetts Route 1A north 18.3 miles from Salisbury through Seabrook, Hampton and Portsmouth along the Seacoast. The state route branches east from South Seabrook to Seabrook Beach and a northerly turn along the Atlantic Ocean. A former toll bridge spans Hampton Harbor Inlet north from Seabrook Beach to Hampton Beach, where NH 1A separates into the couplet of Ocean Boulevard north and Ashworth Avenue south.

Continuing north through the town of Hampton, New Hampshire 1A remains along the coast from Hampton Beach to North Beach and Plaice Cove. The state route enters North Hampton along Ocean Boulevard ahead of Little Boars Head and the town of Rye at Rye Beach. NH 1A hooks westward in north Rye to Foyes Corner and Sagamore Avenue across Sagamore Creek into the city of Portsmouth.
