Tuscan Village in Salem, New Hampshire, grabbed me because it has such a cool vibe and so much to offer for everyone, without being one of those crowded vacay destinations.

Doesn't this look like fun, yet with that casual vibe?  You can enjoy cornhole, beach volleyball, plenty of fire pits, and Adirondacks, live music, food trucks, all in a festival-style atmosphere.  Find your spot for the day and just be.

Tuscan Village is at Lake Park and is one of those inviting places to hang out and meet people. It's also one of those work-live-stay-dine concepts that's been sweeping the country for several years now.

What's cool about these concepts is the inviting atmosphere, where you can kick back with live music, enjoy your choice of restaurants and food trucks, relax with some day drinking, play games with your children, or make it a night out under the lights and stars.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time.
