New Hampshire is so full of natural wonders that it’s hard to pick a few favorites. We’ve got the mountains, the lakes, the ocean, and that amazing Granite State sky. There are infinite natural wonders in New Hampshire to take your breath away. Here are a few of the most incredible natural wonders from all corners of the state.
1. Mount Washington
At 6,288 feet, Mount Washington is the highest summit in the Northeast, and the crown of the Presidential Range. From the summit you can see New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts and even Canada! There’s a reason Native Americans considered the peak sacred.
2. Lake Winnipesaukee
The largest of New Hampshire’s 1,300 lakes and ponds covers 72 square miles, and has 178 miles of shore line.
3. The Atlantic Ocean
New Hampshire may have a short seacoast, but it certainly is beautiful.
4. Diana’s Baths
This series of waterfalls is breathtaking, and the perfect place for taking a dip.
5. Isles of Shoals
These islands were discovered by the Captain John Smith, of Pocahontas fame. Today they are a jewel on the New Hampshire seacoast, full of seaside charm and rocky beaches.
6. Arethusa Falls
New Hampshire’s biggest waterfall is 140 feet of pure beauty.
7. Lost River Gorge
Walking through Lost River Gorge, you’ll be in awe of the power of water. First forged by glaciers and then carved by the stream that play peek-a-boo beneath the granite, Lost River Gorge is a wonder you won’t want to miss out on.
8. The autumn colors
This isn’t one specific wonder, but thousands spread throughout the state each year.
9. The Old Man of The Mountain
Sadly, the Old Man of the Mountain collapsed in 2003, but the series of cliffs will always be a New Hampshire icon.
We’re so lucky to live among such natural beauty.
