Massachusetts resident Catherine Graham was understandably underwhelmed to learn that she had won a trip to neighboring New Hampshire while appearing on The Price Is Right last week. But now, the state is stepping up to make her trip unforgettable with $6,500 of "wicked awesome" upgrades to the original prize package.

"We heard that Catherine was hoping for a trip to Tahiti, but we would tell her not to take the short-haul trip to New Hampshire for granite," Donna Morris, a board member of the Granite State's Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, told PEOPLE.

After learning of Graham's disappointment, she says, "chambers across the state mobilized quickly over the weekend to curate a wicked awesome visit when Catherine is ready to book."

Some of the activities and sights they've picked out for the winner include visits to Canobie Lake Park and Pat's Peak, a wine tasting, jet ski rental and even a chance to throw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, a Double-A team for the Toronto Blue Jays.

"Bottom line?" she adds, "New Hampshire believes the prize is right!"

The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development and multiple chambers of commerce came together to create the package of additional experiences for The Price Is Right winner.

Graham has free tickets waiting for her for the Great Bay Food Truck Festival on May 7 as well as wine tasting at LaBelle Winery. She can indulge her sweet tooth on the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour or enjoy a meal at five restaurants including Great New Hampshire Restaurants, Tuscan Kitchen, Lilac City Grille and Spaulding Steak & Ale and Valley Originals.

She'll also have the opportunity to take in a performance at seven different venues across the state, enjoy a movie at Red River Theatres (with free popcorn, of course).

Last week, after winning a firepit and loveseat during her appearance on classic game show, Graham had the opportunity to compete in the "Side By Side" game, where she learned she would be competing for a five-night stay in New Hampshire at The Hotel Concord and a small food stipend, which she later won after correctly guessing the trip's value.

"My face says it all. I said 'Oh, you're kidding.' [Host] Drew [Carey] goes, 'Oh, that's great. Congratulations, New Hampshire is beautiful!' I go, 'Drew, I live in Boston!' " Graham recalled to Boston CBS affiliate WBZ. "I've been [to New Hampshire] a million times."

"I just wish it was Tahiti or some place, or Bora Bora," she added. "A cruise around the world maybe."

In addition to the trip, Graham also walked away with $1,000 after landing on the $1 when she spun the big wheel.
