This is a great place to visit for all ages and interests. I loved the Seaport village. All the docents and staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

It's your classic lovely living history village with the shops homes and businesses, and add in the harbor and the ships. I remember it as being way more crowded but on this Friday in July it isn't over crowded at all.

We arrived at sunset and quickly went to the seaport. Off in the distance you could hear a band concert playing. Can hardly wait to explore this lovely town.

Great experience. My son really enjoyed the historical aspect. I was a nice step back in time to visit each shop to see how life and work were in the mid-1800s. The whaling museum was very informative and eye-opening. Great workshop events for the kids...More
