Please give me one good reason to visit New Hampshire

I would like to plan a tour of the U.S.A.
Would you help me decide where to go by giving us one good reason to visit your State.
Thanks

Go in the fall, and go anywhere. The entire state will have the most gorgeous foliage you have ever seen. If you've never seen NH in the autumn, you havent seen what Fall colors really are.

Most gorgeous leaves ever. Or read the pumpkin fest post in this section as well!

The mountains are great, but I also love the lakes region, Lake Winnipesaukee is a favorite. Also Lake Ossipee is smaller and good for camping as well.
The seacoast is also a nice place to vacation. Porstmouth has some decent restaurants and places where local bands play. (The Music Hall)
Of course there's always "Strawberry Bank" to visit as well.
There's the Robert Frost house to visit in the Derry area:
Robert Frost Farm, Derry, New Hampshire

No sales tax!

If you're not shopping, I recommend checking out the White Mountains for some great hiking. And drive up Mount Washington! That's an experience!

x2 on this, people love the no sales tax when they come up here, and they are amazed at how much they save.
