New Hampshire, located in the northeastern region of the U.S., is dominated by the White Mountains, a rugged mountain range in the Appalachian Mountains.
The major White Mountain peaks are found within White Mountain National Forest, including the state's highest point, Mt. Washington, at 6,288 feet.
Northern New Hampshire is covered by forest, while the Coastal Lowlands lie southeast of Concord along the coastline, forming picturesque sandy beaches.
