Summer in New Hampshire is so short that we have to take full advantage of it. When a hot day is coming, you have to be prepared to live it to the fullest. Here are 14 things you must do in New Hampshire on a hot day.
1. Wake up early.
We know, no one likes to be told to get out of bed. But we promise, today is going to be worth it. You don't want to sleep till noon and miss half the fun.
2. Pack your bag.
Today is going to be full of adventure, so here's what you'll need: sneakers, a swim suit, a towel, bug spray, sunblock and a snack.
3. Head to Dunkin Donuts.
Buy an iced coffee, obviously.
4. Hike your favorite trail.
If you think hiking isn't the perfect start to a hot day, you haven't tried it. The woods are still cool in the morning, and a little physical activity will make you enjoy what's to come even more.
5. Enjoy the view.
Whether you make it to the top of a mountain or just to your favorite quiet spot, take a moment to appreciate nature.
6. Purchase watermelon
This glorious fruit will soon become your favorite part of your picnic.
7. Head straight to your favorite beach.
Whether it is the ocean, a lake or a river, just get to the water.
8. And jump in.
Yes, we know the water is cold.
9. Read a book in the sun.
Or a magazine.
10. And take a nap in the shade.
This is what life is about.
11. Get an ice cream.
From your favorite local ice cream shop, of course.
12. Invite all your friends over for a cookout.
There's nothing as great as grilling with friends.
13. End the night with a campfire.
With your favorite drink and a s'more, of course.
14. Look for shooting stars.
Warm summer nights are already magical, and a shooting star makes them even more so.
