New Hampshire Overview

New Hampshire was the ninth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution, and was one of the original 13 states that founded the United States of America, but its history goes back even further than that. It was the first sovereign nation in America when it broke off relations with Great Britain in January 1776, and was also the first state to bring into effect its own state constitution. It is also known for being the only state which does not have a personal income tax or a general sales tax, and contains some of the most majestic New England landscapes in the entire United States. Known as The Granite State, New Hampshire is one of the most majestic states to visit, not only for its natural beauty and history, but simply for the experience.

Tourism is the main industry of the state, and its residents are extremely proud of their ecosystem and natural environment. The White Mountains are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the United States, and boast some of the best ski slopes in the country during the winter months. Outside of those, the area is perfect for hiking and biking, and there are plenty of forests and rivers and lakes to keep you occupied outside the mountains.

However, New Hampshire is also a treasure trove of historical buildings, from the colonial settlement of Portsmouth to small village such as Keene. In addition, Dartmouth University resides within the state, and there are plenty of New England coastal areas to take advantage of as well. All in all, New Hampshire is one of the most picturesque states when it comes to the sheer beauty of North America, and visiting here at any time of year is considered a treat. The winters are a bit cold, but the frigid temperatures can easily be forgotten when standing against the backdrop of such epic history and amazing views.
