Top spot on the coast with the most.
And it's easy to see why - with its spectacular 100ft cliffs, miles of sandy beaches and pine-lined avenues.
Set in a sheltered bay, Bournemouth gets the best of the British weather and the sea water is reputedly warmer too - something to do with the Gulf Stream!
There's accommodation to suit all budgets from hotels, B&Bs and self-catering apartments with prices from pounds 15 to pounds 70.
And there's plenty to do. Next weekend Bourne- mouth will be marking National Piers Day with a programme of family fun events.
The day's activities will all go on around the main pier with live bands, a bi-plane display, parakiting, speedboat spins and bucking banana rides.
A Kids' Free Fun Festival runs for five weeks through the school summer holidays.
Held on the beach, there is daily entertainment for children including clowns, magicians and plenty of sporting opportunities along with sandcastle building. And it's all for free!
Out and about, around Bournemouth there are plenty of places worth a visit, including Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy and Brownsea Island as well as the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.
