Welcome to the Granite State

The northeastern state of New Hampshire is a captivating state renowned for its natural beauty, rich history, and independent spirit (having “live free or die” as their state motto should probably be a dead giveaway).

With its diverse geography, New Hampshire offers a tapestry of picturesque landscapes. Majestic mountains, including the famous White Mountains, provide ample opportunity for outdoor adventures, including hiking, skiing, or just taking in the breathtaking vistas. The state’s charming lakes, such as Lake Winnipesaukee, beckon with their tranquil shores, inviting boating, fishing, and relaxation.

Good to know: New Hampshire earned the nickname “the Granite State” due to its abundant granite formations and quarries.

Bordering States

The Granite State is bordered by Massachusetts to the south, Vermont to the west, Maine and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, as well as the Canadian province of Quebec to the north.
