The Granite State

"A place of distinct natural beauty that places a premium on self-governance and informed public discourse, New Hampshire reflects the very best of our nation."

New Hampshire's well-known state motto - "Live Free Or Die" - perfectly captures the spirit and character of Granite State citizens.  Fiercely independent, Granite Staters place a high premium on personal freedom and self-reliance - and believe strongly that government should not be allowed to get in the way of each of us reaching our full potential.

For those who haven't been, New Hampshire is a great place to spend a vacation - or a life.

While the state may be internationally famous for its "First-In-The Nation" presidential primary, New Hampshire's cultural heritage and unspoiled landscape make it an attractive destination for visitors from around the country and the world.

There's something for everyone in the Granite State - from public beaches at the Seacoast, to the majestic Lakes Region, to the White Mountain National Forest, and north to the pristine beauty and solitude of Coos County. Autumn in New Hampshire brings a spectacular fall foliage display, as leaves turn bright shades of orange, yellow and red. And during the winter months, snowmobiling, skiing and snowboarding are just a few outdoor activities that attract visitors to the state. Click for more information about visiting New Hampshire.

New Hampshire is also a competitive place to own or locate a business, with its favorable business climate and talented workforce. Firm in the belief that "low taxes are the result of low spending," the state has no sales or income taxes, which reflects its business-friendly approach.
