Given that I have ‘topless‘ posts and even ‘topless in NH‘ posts, not to mention the recent posts about ‘Free the Nipple in New Hampshire‘, I do get ‘hits’ here of people looking for nude or nudist beaches in New Hampshire.
Today I felt compelled to address this, once and for all.
Yes, New Hampshire does have a bona fide nudist beach– Cedar Waters Village, 24 Smoke Street, Nottingham, NH 03290. Tel: 603-679-2036.
I have never been but I have driven past the sign on many an occasion.
So that is at least ONE genuine nudist park, with a lake and beach, in New Hampshire.
As to Topless Beaches …
There is no female topless laws in New Hampshire per se, though there is a rather broad one covering lewdness (which could be used to cover ‘topless’) and then there is always the catch-all ‘disturbing the peace‘. Plus individual towns, Laconia for example, can have specific topless ordinances — and Laconia does have one having to do with Bike Week. Kind of sad. I have lived here long enough to remember when there was quite a bit of female toplessness at Weirs during Bike Week.
Having lived waterfront in New Hampshire for 17 years, 10 of it on Lake Winnipesaukee, I can assure you that there is more toplessness and nudity around the NH lakes than you realize — albeit some on private beaches and ‘when the sun goes down’.
That there are no State laws against female toplessness does not mean that you will not get arrested on a beach if you happen to be topless and somebody complains. And the complaining part is key. Shame. As I have said many a times I grew up in Europe where most beaches are topless.
So now you have the full story. Enjoy.
