What is there to do in New Hampshire? We were hoping you'd ask, because the moment you begin anticipating your New Hampshire visit, you'll feel yourself slipping into vacation mode. And if you're a Granite Stater looking for things to do close to home, we have ideas for you, too.

New Hampshire is a land of contrasts, where you can climb a mountain one day and scuba-dive in a glacial lake the next. Feed Santa's reindeer in July, or surf indoors while January flurries fly. Laze on a beach, or feel the rush of swooping tree to tree on a zipline canopy tour. Catch a chairlift when snow-coated slopes beckon, and again in the fall for a splendid view of our kaleidoscope of colorful foliage. Stalk moose in the Great North Woods, or hunt for bargains at outlet stores. Roar through the woods on an ATV. "Meet" characters from history who shaped our nation, or gaze through a viewer to see the Old Man of the Mountain, whose granite face is gone but not forgotten.
