Those of us living on the seacoast of New Hampshire are lucky to have some great, creative local businesses to celebrate. Some like Planet Fitness have gone on to national success, others are awesome in their own special way.

1. Planet Fitness

They started in Dover and went on to become coast to coast success. I've been a Planet Fitness member for years now.

2. Aroma Joe's

Can I tell you how much I've always LOVED their coffee? So good we need to share with the rest of the world.

3. Lagos' Lone Oak Ice Cream

The best ice cream anywhere! I lived nearby the Rochester Lagos for many years and always looked forward to the end of the season when they were giving away their overstocked inventory. Great folks!

4. Newick's

You can't duplicate the food or the atmosphere of having a meal there on Dover Point, but Newicks is too much of a local treasure not to try.

5. Thirsty Moose Tap House

You're missing out if you don't enjoy the Thirsty Moose the next time you want a night out with friends. It's become the downtown destination in Dover.
