We sure are lucky to call New Hampshire home. There's no shortage of things to do here year-round, as well as in our neighboring states of Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont.

Are you an avid hiker, skier, or general outdoorsman (or woman)? You can visit the White Mountains. Do you like history, or perhaps strolling through charming, quintessential New England towns? This writer recommends going to Portsmouth and experiencing all that the small coastal city has to offer. Then there's the beach. Whether you're hoping to sun, surf, or stroll down the boardwalk, this place has it all.

Besides our close proximity to these destinations, we're also fortunate to be surrounded by a beautiful natural backdrop every day. New Hampshire's scenery is lovely year-round. When nature's in full bloom during the spring and summer, we're extra appreciative of the beauty and color around us. Our falls are truly something spectacular, bringing in leaf-peepers from all over to see our fabulous foliage. And then there are the winters, which can be pretty in their own right, too.

But what are some of the most beautiful things in the Granite State? Where are our loveliest regions, scenic spots, or various landmarks and destinations? We asked some locals for their thoughts, and couldn't agree more with the responses. So, let's look at 12 of the most beautiful things in New Hampshire.
