Located in the north-eastern United States, New Hampshire is best known for its picturesque towns, excellent skiing, and extensive areas of scenic beauty, with a diverse range of geographical features including lakes, mountains, waterfalls and beaches. The state makes up part of the New England region and is one the smallest in the United States, with a proud population of 1.3 million people known for their rugged independence.
New Hampshire's unpredictable weather is just a way of life for its locals, who often remind you that "if you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes". However, summer usually brings warm weather and is an excellent time to get out into the great outdoors, whilst autumn's pleasant and mild temperatures are great for exploring. Those considering New Hampshire holidays during the winter months should be aware that the area is known for its cold snaps, though plentiful skiing resorts make it a popular time to visit. New Hampshire is serviced by the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, though international visitors may find it more economical and flexible to travel to Boston Logan International airport in Massachusetts before making the short drive north to New Hampshire. Because of the state's extensive scenery, car is the best way to get around. New Hampshire is in the Eastern Time Zone (GMT - 5).
Although the state only covers an area of 10,000 square miles, New Hampshire holidays offer plenty of diversity regardless of when you visit. Those visiting during spring and summer should take advantage of the many hiking, biking, and kayaking opportunities found in the White Mountains and Lakes Region of New Hampshire, whilst autumn is the best time to witness the New England foliage, when trees transform the area into a brilliant sea of red, yellow, and orange. During winter, visitors can ski some of the best slopes in the eastern US.
