The Light of Liberty on the Freecoast
The Seacoast (or Freecoast) offers the highest population density of any region of New Hampshire. It functions as a “network city” composed of several historic urban nodes – Portsmouth, Dover, Durham, Newmarket, Exeter, Hampton, et al. From pristine beaches to fine dining to cutting-edge startups, the Seacoast is the place for libertarians seeking a cosmopolitan life in the freest of states.
Freecoasters have an official meetup every Thursday night to keep in touch and to welcome new movers and interested locals into the community. They also have quarterly potluck events. Casually, families (and single folks as well) gather several times a week, supporting each other and giving their children access to families who share their values. They go to the beach together, go to the farmer’s market, share potluck dinners, and more.
The Freecoast is also home to The Praxeum, a unique flexible-use space centered on liberty. It is an incubator for new companies, an art studio, an unschooling classroom, a meditative retreat, and much more.
It’s hard to imagine what our life would have been if we had not come to the Seacoast of New Hampshire to raise our kids in this community, and hard to remember how risky it felt when we first decided to make the leap. We’re eternally grateful for that decision now, and hope you’ll come out and see New Hampshire for yourself some time soon.James Davis
