New Hampshire's Geography Offers a Variety of Activities


Visitors: 120

From the Great North Woods bordering Canada to the Lakes region in the state’s midsection, from the small but busy seacoast to the alpine grandeur of the White Mountains, New Hampshire’s physical geography provides its residents and visitors with a wealth of recreational activities.

The state’s abundance of rivers, lakes, and streams provides opportunities for fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and other boating, while its mountains delight sightseeing tourists and challenge the strength and endurance of thousands of hikers and climbers annually. On the seacoast, the visitor can choose to tour Portsmouth’s historic Strawbery Banke, lovingly restored several decades ago, swim and sunbathe on bustling Hampton Beach with its Carnival atmosphere, or take any number of cruises on the open sea.

New Hampshire’s many summer camps, scattered throughout wild areas of the state, are home to thousands of kids a year; also dotting the landscape are small summer theatres, some of which import well-known professional actors to perform a variety of plays. A sizable population of skilled artists and artisans also make their home in New Hampshire, enjoying the solitude and the natural beauty of the largely rural state to provide themselves with a suitable environment in which to create.

In short, New Hampshire’s varied geography and its wilderness areas help define the state, attracting visitors and residents who treasure its natural beauty, enjoy the recreational activities it offers, and appreciate its often quiet rural character. In an increasingly hectic world, the often slower pace of New Hampshire’s countryside is much needed.
