While the rocky mountains of New Hampshire may
be its most noticeable and famous feature, "The
Granite State" is something of a misnomer!
New Hampshire is as diverse a state as can be
found anywhere in the U.S. It is a state not just
of stone and mountains, but a state of hills and
valleys, farms and cities, lakes and rivers, beach
communities and picture perfect New England villages.
||As one of the original 13 states, New Hampshire's
state motto, "Live Free or Die", certainly
reflects the fierce independent streak which runs
through their peoples, but the population is justly
proud of their heritage and is eager to share their
rich history with visitors from all every corner
of the world with an openness and warmth rarely
found anywhere else. They are the quintessential
Americans. Just remember what they say about the
crucial New Hampshire primaries - as goes New Hampshire,
so goes the country.
From surfboards to snowboards, from mountains to valleys,
New Hampshire offers a taste of just about everything
