One of the few states left with just one area code, New Hampshire measures only 9,270 square miles. What the Granite State lacks in size, it makes up in natural beauty. Tourists and residents alike often enjoy Mother Nature’s splendor through various outdoor recreational pursuits.
Off-roading, biking and horseback riding along country roads lets you explore at your own pace. For aerial views, ziplining is recommended. To discover parts of the Atlantic Ocean and various lakes or rivers, launch a kayak or canoe. If you prefer a guided tour, any number of outfitters await your call.
New Hampshirites benefit from four distinct seasons. Usually winter brings snow and colder temperatures, spring is still a bit cool and often rainy, summers pop in with pleasantly, mild days and in the fall you can feel those brisk temperatures synonymous with autumn. Most of New Hampshire averages 45 inches of rainfall a year, but in the White Mountains you’ll encounter 200 inches or more of snow, which make these slopes ideal for cross country skiing, snow tubing and year round dog sledding.
No sales tax, capital gains or income tax makes New Hampshire very desirable for many and means you get to keep more of that money you earn. Whether you work in tourism (the highest revenue source), high tech or health care, you’ll have one of the highest median household incomes in the U.S., which hovers around $61,000. Lumber and textiles also represent major employers in the state. Some of the fastest growing private companies headquartered in New Hampshire include Rocket Drop, Body Armor Outlet, Edge Velocity and RE/MAX Insight.
Seafood lovers will feel very comfortable here. Although the coastline is short, New Hampshire boasts their fair share of fresh fish and shellfish. You can order or buy fresh cod, scrod, haddock, halibut, and trout, plus shellfish like lobster, scallops, clams, oysters and mussels.
As one of the original 13 colonies, history prevails here in a rich and varied way. The Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion in Portsmouth showcases five different periods of architecture and reflects aristocratic living in the 1700s. You can also visit poet Robert Frost’s home in Derry where he lived for 10 years.
Don’t worry about Portsmouth being the site of the first published account of an alien abduction. That was a long time ago. On the other end of the spectrum, Dublin is home to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, a book people turn to for tide tables, weather predictions and gardening tips.
