I went to the Science Center and helped with ocean debris cleanup. I got the chance to walk through the Science Center. It was very cool. Definitely check it out. Its a great area for kids and adults with exhibits of sea creatures and posters full of great marine information. The park itself has a rocky beach with plenty of seating. The organize events and have plenty of volunteer opportunities. Its paid parking too. I didn't have to pay because I volunteered, maybe it was because I was on a motorcycle, lol, not sure.
A unique natural area in New Hampshire! I spend my free time exploring New Hampshire, and this is one of the only seacoast/tidal nature areas to visit. When tide is out you can explore the tide pools (which are slimy and not very appealing), the coast is mostly rocky but you can wade in the water as well. There is marshland on the inland side. I just didn't find it that pretty overall or I would have given it 5 stars.
