Discover New Hampshire's Secret Nooks and Crannies
By Jeffrey Smith
New Hampshire is a great vacation destination, especially if you like outdoor activity. Most people don’t realize that such a small state has so much to offer, from its 18 miles of ocean coast to soaring Mount Washington to massive Lake Winnipesaukee. One of the great things about the size of the state is that it’s possible to incorporate more than one of these great areas in your Granite State vacation.
The Seacoast Region is a small but diverse area that is suitable for families, groups of friends or couples on a romantic getaway. Beginning at the Massachusetts state line, the coast begins at a busy state park with nice sandy beaches and amenities such as restrooms and picnic tables. A little farther is the bustling Hampton Beach area, with its classic East Coast boardwalk with arcades, shops and restaurants, all across the street from the wide beach.
