I am reviewed Vermont and New Hampshire together as we saw them both and one day and are similar in lots of ways. I found both of these states to be lovely and have a great vibe, they are very mountain chic. By that I mean that they are very artsy and have lovely highway drives. Maybe not worth spending weeks in, but definitely worth a trip for a long weekend or short break. My total score out of 50 is 32.
