Seacoast Discovery Center has a hanging whale skeleton, multiple tanks with interesting fish, a great educational center! This was the earliest settled spot in NH (before Strawbery Banke), now it's a large promontory with the SDC, earliest graveyard in the state, and gigantic gun emplacements from WWII.

I enjoyed this park. My only complaint would be the visitors who had no where to put their doggy bags and just left them on the trails because it would simply be too inconvenient to carry them home I guess.

“Odiorne Point is the largest undeveloped stretch of shore on New Hampshire's eighteen mile coast.” The coast provides good potential for seeing beautiful landscape in the “right” light. During my short visit at a less then optimal time of day, I was inspired by three things: - What appeared to be a lighthouse across the water and the colorful fall... More
