Rugged and authentic, the Granite State has long attracted visitors with its mountain peaks, forested lakes and scenic valleys – a heaven for outdoor adventure. Colonial history is alive and well in New Hampshire, from larger settlements like Portsmouth to pristine New England villages like Keene and Meredith.

A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to picked the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. Experts Kim Knox Beckius (EverythingNewEngland.com) and Eric D. Lehman were chosen based on their knowledge and experience of travel in New Hampshire.
