A one-hour tour of the Anheuser-Busch brewing facility is completely free, and it includes the chance to both learn about the brewing process and to meet some of the famous Clydesdales. You'll have money left over to buy a pint at the end. Find it at 221 Daniel Webster Highway, Merrimack, NH 03054.
2. Fill up a bag of old-fashioned candy at Chutters in Littleton

4. Take a scenic drive
The Kancamagus is the obvious choice, of course. $10 should get you enough gas for an enjoyable adventure!
5. Tour the State House in Concord
New Hampshire's State House is beautiful and historic, and you can tour it for free (you do have to book in advance and follow some security procedures).

7. Take a walk through the ghost town of Monson

8. Take a beautiful winter hike on the Northern Rail Trail
