I'm visiting some friends in the Lincoln area for a day or two and will have 5 days to tour the state. Now I've spent some time in NH but it's been years back. I'm very familiar with Dover and Portsmouth. I've spent time in Conway and numerous towns but really did not do much in the way of touring. What 2 or 3 towns would you tell a visitor they should visit. I love photography but I'm an amateur at best. Love outdoor scenes but an injury will keep from walking a lot. Love waterfalls, mountain views and so on.

Thanks in advance.

Hard not to find mountain views, but the good waterfalls require a bit of a hike, some more than others.

Check out September posts from years past on "New Hampshire Garden Solutions" for inspiration.

In that area, I'd take the cog railroad to the top of Mt Washington and then visit Whitefield, where you can stay the the beautiful Mountain View Grand Resort, a renovated historic hotel property with gorgeous views of the Presidential Range from its charming front porch. The town of Littleton is on a rushing river and has a suspension bridge and restored mill that might be nice for photos.

For a 5 day visit based in Lincoln I would suggest:
A. I second taking the Cog up Mt. Washington. Or drive it if you don't mind a half hour nerve-wracking trip in 1st gear. In either case, certainly drive up and down the Kanc.
B. Walk the Flume Gorge there in Lincoln. And/or do the Lost River Gorge in Rumney.
C. New London is a nice town but in September the Barn Playhouse is ending its summer run and the college students will be returning.
D. Head down 93 then east to Meredith and Laconia. See Lake W., visit Fun Spot and Kellerhaus.
E. Drive up 93 and visit Franconia, the north country. Hit 91 and go up and down the river. See the Hanover area.

Thanks. My visit to Lincoln will likely only be a day or two at most.

A less visited but beautiful part of the state is the Monadnock region. For the classic New England village look, I highly recommend Washington, Hancock and Harrisville. The latter is also a classic mill town, carefully preserved and very photogenic, especially the library and church from across the pond.
