Pinching pennies never felt so good! Check out our picks for the best bargains in New Hampshire for 2014.

BEST CHAMBER MUSIC:
APPLE HILL, Nelson

Musicians from around the world (Syria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Cyprus, Turkey, Northern Ireland, the UK, and Russia), as well as from cities across the United States, come here to learn and perform. And for five Sunday evenings every summer, open rehearsals and classes are free and open to the public. Even better, outdoor seating during weekly Tuesday night concerts is free. 410 Apple Hill Road. 603-847-3371; applehill.org

BEST WATERFALL:
BEAVER BROOK FALLS WAYSIDE, Colebrook

No hiking is necessary to find this waterfall right off Route 145. Have lunch at one of the many picnic tables and watch the show of water cascading from 80 feet on high. 432 Route 145. 603-538-6707; nhstateparks.org/explore/state-parks/beaver-brook-falls-wayside.aspx

BEST CULTURAL MUSEUM:
ENFIELD SHAKER MUSEUM, Enfield

A history lesson for the kids costs nothing here, as kids under 10 are free. Enjoy Shaker furniture, tools, and clothing inside the Great Stone Dwelling (the largest Shaker dwelling house constructed). Outside, enjoy gardens and views of Mount Assurance and Mascoma Lake. Adults $12, ages 10–17 $8; under 10 free. 447 Route 4A. 603-632-4346; shakermuseum.org

BEST BASEBALL:
NEW HAMPSHIRE FISHER CATS, Manchester

Can’t beat the Double-A action of this Toronto Blue Jays affiliate. They’ve won two Eastern League championships since setting up shop in Manchester in 2004 and sent more than 65 players on to Major League débuts. Can’t beat the price, either: individual tickets are just $12. Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, 1 Line Drive. 603-641-2005; newhampshire.fishercats.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t463

BEST LIGHTHOUSE:
PORTSMOUTH HARBOR LIGHTHOUSE, New Castle

Sundays from May to October you can climb the 44 steps to the Watch Room, then a ladder to the Lantern Room, while volunteers share the light station’s history. Adults $4, ages 12 and under $2. 25 Wentworth Road. portsmouthharborlighthouse.org/open-houses-tours
