New Hampshire Essential Info

Overview

With seven distinct regions and so much to see and do, there’s no wrong way to visit New Hampshire. Hike one of our 4,000 footers and inhale crisp mountain air. Take a boat ride on a glassy lake, or a refreshing dip in the Atlantic Ocean. If fine dining and tax-free shopping are more your speed, try some local fare, or bring a piece of the Granite State home with you. Whether you’re here for a week, a weekend, or a day, the adventures in New Hampshire are endless.
