New Hampshire Vacations
This small state offers scenic mountains, picturesque forests and stunning lakes that inspired some of the country’s most famous artists and free-thinkers.

Prior to Euro-American settlement in the seventeenth century, the New Hampshire area was home to nomadic Abenaki tribes. Established in 1631, New Hampshire was one of the first colonies to declare independence and the first to form its own government. The small state flourished on a textile manufacturing economy, and in 1915 hosted the largest number of textile mills in the world. Today New Hampshire remains a pivotal player in the United States’ political system, hosting the first primary election for Democratic and Republican candidates.
