History? We've got it in spades! Historic homes, lighthouses, and forts dot the coast. Take a tour as you meander up the coastline hopping from town to town. And for the kids--what little guy wouldn't like a cool zoo? You'll find that in York. Or how about a fast action water park in Portsmouth or a tugboat ride right down at the harbor?
For the whole family there are plenty of excellent beaches for picnics, surfing and just beach reading and if the weather outside is not delightful, the Children's Museum in Portsmouth will keep younger kids occupied for an afternoon.
