Special churches

North Church in Portsmouth
The North Church in the city of Portsmouth has a long history but its actual construction can be dated back to 1854. This year the church underwent extensive renovations after being damaged. After this renovation, today’s church was completed in its Victorian style. The bright white church tower can be seen from many places in Portsmouth and thus helps some with orientation.

Religious Society of Friends Meetinghouse in Dover
The Religious Society of Friends Meetinghouse in the city of Dover is a historic Quaker meeting house, which was built in 1768.

Santa’s Village in Jefferson
The Santa’s Village amusement park in Jefferson City opened in 1953 and is all about Christmas. All of the 18 rides are somehow connected to Christmas. The park is particularly family-friendly. There are also 2 theaters and a 3D cinema in the park. But the absolute highlight, at least for the little visitors, is the house of Santa Claus. Here you can lie down in Santa’s bed, sit in his chairs and, of course, take a picture with him.
