Guide to New Hampshire

Geography

Bordered by the White Mountains and Canada in the north, Maine and the Atlantic Ocean in the east, Vermont in the west, and Massachusetts in the south, New Hampshire is one of the smallest and least populated states in the country.

Although Concord is the capital city, Manchester is the largest city and economic hub in the state.

Climate

New Hampshire has a humid continental climate. It’s warm and humid in the summers, and cold and snowy in the winters. Temperatures in the winter can sometimes go as low as -4°F (-20°C) in the cites and 0°F (-17.8°C) in the northern wilderness. Nevertheless, winters are still a great time to visit because the city thrives on winter sports during that time.

Culture in New Hampshire

New Hampshire gets its name from the English county of Hampshire, which subsequently gets its name from an old English word “Hamtun” meaning “village town”. The Algonquian-speaking Albeki tribes inhabited the state before the arrival of Europeans.

Things to Do to New Hampshire

Immerse yourself in the picturesque outdoors

About a quarter of the state is dense with rolling mountains and crisp rivers. To lift your mood with some nature therapy as you sit beside soothing shores, the Lakes Region is a must-visit. Located in the east-central part, it is made up of many interconnected lakes that form the backdrop to many events and festivals. From summer camps to events like Gift of Lights and Kellerhaus Yuletide Open House, the Lakes Region is a popular day trip and camping spot for the locals.

Discover forgotten American history

The Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth is one of the oldest outdoor history museums in the country, spread over 10-acres. It spills the stories of Strawberry Banke, a historic district of Portsmouth of one of the earliest settlements by the English. With eight heritage gardens, traditional crafts and houses, and some restored houses built in the Colonial, Georgian, and Federal architectural styles, this place is a living postcard.

Eating out in New Hampshire

The Martingale Wharf Restaurant in Portsmouth treats you with mouth-watering breakfasts, especially if you’re not put off by the idea of starting your morning with seafood. Their lobster rolls are drool-worthy.  On the other hand, if red beef tickles your fancy, then the Red Parka Steakhouse and Pub in Glen is a hotspot serving a variety of tasty steaks and prime ribs. For mocktails, cocktails, and desserts, the Republic is the place to go to satisfy both your sweet tooth and inner alcoholic.
