Cheap flights to New Hampshire

New Hampshire is an American state in the northeast of the United States of America, one of six that make up the New England region (the others being Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut). Named after England’s Hampshire county by Englishmen who had first set up a fishing colony in the area, New Hampshire was granted statehood in 1788, making it the 9th state of the USA and one of the original 13 states that had made up the nation.

Though New Hampshire is one of the smallest and least populated states in the USA (with an area of slightly over 9,000 square miles and a population of about 1.3 million) natural attractions and scenic beauty are not lacking within this state: it contains some of the largest ski mountains on the country’s east coast, making it a popular destination for skiing and snowboarding in the winter and hiking and biking in non-snowy seasons. Valleys, lakes, hills, forests and mountain streams are also a-plenty in the Granite State, whose nickname was borne of the large quantities of granite that can be found in its natural formations and quarries.

Getting around

As with most of the United States, driving is one of the best ways of getting around New Hampshire. With well-developed and extensive road networks as well as an abundance of scenic routes, road trips are one of the best ways to see what the Granite State has to offer. Furthermore, New Hampshire’s public transport network is rather limited (as of February 2015).

For those who’d really prefer not to drive, though, New Hampshire’s Concord Coach Lines provide long-distance coach services that link many of the states major cities.

What to see and do

One of New Hampshire’s most renowned natural attractions, White Mountain National Forest has an area of 1,225 square miles and offers outdoor recreational activities all year-round; be it hiking, skiing, camping, mountain biking, climbing, fishing, nature viewing, or scenic driving, White Mountain National Forest is the place to do it.

But if water scenery is more your thing, then head over to New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, a popular area for locals and tourists alike. Consisting of more than 270 lakes and ponds including some of New Hampshire’s largest lakes (Lake Winnipesaukee and Squam Lake), Lakes Region is the perfect place for a tranquil holiday spent in a lakeside cabin, with some swimming, tubing, kayaking, water-skiing, boating and fishing during the day.
