We look forward to sharing our New Hampshire summer with friends and family each year. Several friends fell in love with the area and return each year. This year, we’ve enticed my sister to travel here for the first time.
For the returning visitor, we look around for some sightseeing opportunity that they haven’t yet seen. Of course, we try to fit in a lobster feast at some time during the visit. Here are my tips for preparing the lobster feast.
For the first-time visitor, trying to match their interests to the local sites is fun. Since my sister has an inquiring mind and loves history and architecture, there’s a wide range of possibilities. I want to show her the amazing building that is the Wakefield Public Library. Then we’ll explore the village with the houses and the inn dating back to Colonial times.
Of course, we’ll probably take a drive over to the coast, eat some seafood and walk the beach at Wells or Kennebunkport. Another day we might hunt for covered bridges and stop at scenic overlooks to get photos of the White Mountains.
There are so many beautiful and unique things to do in New Hampshire and Maine, that it makes it hard to choose. Naturally we will want a few days at home to savor the quiet of the woods, lounge on the deck with a good book or take a walk down to the lake.
