Seacoast, lakes and mountains, thriving small cities, picturesque villages, rolling farmland, and deep forests--New Hampshire has it all. It's easy to pack a lot into your vacation without a lot of driving, thanks to the state's modest size. Even if you only have a day or two, you can sample quite a bit of the state. For instance, one could have breakfast on the seacoast, and tour one of the many historic sites; then head north for lunch and an afternoon of shopping or relaxing by a lake; and have dinner and spend the night in the mountains.
