I'm definitely looking forward to more (safe) beach time before fall arrives (how is it the end of August already?). Take a trip down memory lane with this book about the history of the Hampton Beach area.
Hampton Beach is a gem tucked away on New Hampshire's 18-mile coastline, but its unique qualities and picturesque views have made it one of New England's most beloved vacation destinations. At the center of beach activity is the Seashell Complex and the Hampton Beach Casino. The Seashell has been on the coast since 1962, and the Casino Ballroom has occupied Ocean Boulevard for over 110 years. The community boasts a seamless combination of old and new, from the recent Hampton Beach Redevelopment Project to the long-standing Ashworth by the Sea Hotel. Its small-town values, annual parades and festivals, and weekly fireworks continue as they have for decades. -- Publisher's blurb.
