New Hampshire may be small, but the Granite State has a lot to offer. The eastern side borders the Atlantic Ocean, so there are plenty of beaches and quaint New England seaside towns to visit, but if you are looking for something a little more exciting and outdoorsy, like rock climbing, camping, hiking, or cross-country skiing, you will find plenty of opportunities to indulge your outdoorsy side, too. Some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country exist in New Hampshire.


01Kancamagus Highway

Kancamagus Highway is not your typical Sunday drive. Located in northern New Hampshire, in White Mountain National Forest, the Kancamagus Highway is a 34-mile stretch of road that is a destination for hundreds of thousands of people every year. A drive through the area in the fall is simply stunning as the leaves change to fiery red, orange, and yellow. If you want the full experience, make some stops along the way to check out the trails, waterfalls, and scenic views.
