New Hampshire is defined by its quaint towns and large expanses of wilderness. Breathtaking mountains, pristine lakes and ponds, beautiful villages and farms, and miles of coastline are just a few of the fabulous sights New Hampshire has to offer. The city of Nashua, rated as the top city in the country to live, along with Manchester, and Concord, offer cultural events, seasonal events, museums, in addition to colleges and universities. On the outskirts of the cities, small towns thrive. It's New England at its best!
If you're looking to hike – we've got you covered. New Hampshire is home to 48 mountains with peaks higher than 4,000 feet! You can easily access the Appalachian Trail and numerous trails of various distances and difficulties throughout the state. It's also home to the tallest mountain in the Northeast, Mount Washington. If you're up for a challenge, the view is worth the climb. At the top holds a 100-mile view of three states and Canada.
New Hampshire also holds some phenomenal beaches. At the Hampton Beach State Park, there are plenty of places to swim in the ocean, go fishing, camp out, or visit the amphitheater for a concert.
We'd definitely recommend visiting New Hampshire in the fall. This time of year the foliage is incredible – and picture worthy. The colors are truly spectacular.
We mentioned Fall being picture-worthy, but have we mentioned all the covered bridges? Fifty-four of the remaining 750 covered bridges in all of the United States are located in New Hampshire. Each bridge is unique to its town and design. Because of their beauty and the history behind them, covered bridges became the first type of historic structures specifically protected by state law in New Hampshire.
According to the US Institute for Economics and Peace, New Hampshire ranks Number 3 in "Safest States to Live" (behind only Maine and Vermont). Basically, if you're looking for a comfortable, cozy place to settle down, New Hampshire is your best bet.
