Fodor's Review

These 135 acres of protected seaside land are where David Thompson established the first permanent English settlement in what is now New Hampshire. Several nature trails from which you can enjoy vistas of the nearby Isles of Shoals have informative panels describing the park's military history. The rocky shore's tidal pools shelter crabs, periwinkles, and sea anemones. Throughout the year, the Seacoast Science Center hosts exhibits on the area's natural history. Its tidal-pool touch tank and 1,000-gallon Gulf of Maine deepwater aquarium are popular with kids. There are also guided nature walks.
