University of new HampsHire 2009 � ski team � 2010 The University of New Hampshire, located in Durham in the southeast corner of the state, offers students a wealth of cultural and recreational opportunities within a two-hour drive of campus. The University itself is located just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean. Historic Portsmouth Harbor, less than 10 miles from UNH, offers many shopping and fine dining opportunities, while Hampton Beach, to the south, is a popular vacation spot where thousands of Granite State residents flock to each summer. Just an hour south of campus is Boston, the cultural "hub" of New England. There, visitors can enjoy a baseball game at historic Fenway Park, visit Quincy Market or walk the Freedom Trail which features many of the sites where early American history was made. Less than a two hour drive to the north of campus is the White Mountain region of New Hampshire, which offers numerous skiing and hiking opportunities. Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeast. Also to the north is the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. The crown jewel of the region is Lake Winnipesaukee, which is one of the largest lakes in the Northeast. Countless recreational opportunities exist on the many lakes in the area. Maine is just minutes away as well. The Kittery area is home to many factory outlet stores, and the world-famous L.L. Bean Company is in nearby Freeport. The city of Portland, just an hour's drive north of campus, features another historic waterfront district with fine seafood restaurants and one of the busiest ports in the east. Chances are, if you are looking for something to do, no matter what it is, the opportunity you are looking for is close to the University of New Hampshire.
