This site lists what years tropical storms and hurricanes have affected various cities in its database. It lists how often a city is impacted on average and gives details about some of the more notable storms to hit the city. At the bottom of the page you will find a dropdown box that says "Info for this city". There you can find some interesting city statistics.

Historical Hurricane tracks from NOAA
This site allows you to view any past hurricane track using a viewer. You can zoom in on any storm track. A unique feature of this tool is the ability to enter your zip code to see what storms have passed near you. One very interesting feature is the ability to add all storm tracks on a single image, which of course makes things extremely crowded.

Historical Hurricane tracks from AccuWeather
A nice feature of this site is that it plots wind and pressure in a graph in addition to storm tracks in Google Maps.
