The White Mountains & Majestic Coastline
Sometimes referred to as the “Mother of Rivers” it is also known as “the Granite State” as five of the great streams of New England originate in its granite hills. Lakes, mountains and areas of dense forest dominate this picturesque state which has 18 miles of seacoast and one photogenic village after another. The White Mountains provide great skiing and snowboarding in winter and fabulous hiking in the summer and autumn. On vast Lake Winnipesaukee, you can paddle or boat, fish or swim and its pine-clad islands provide a peaceful retreat from everyday life. Oh, and don’t forget that when you can steal yourself away from all this natural beauty and head for the shops, there’s no sales tax!
