to enjoy and experience in the Granite State. You can think of this publication as a snapshot of a state in motion because, as publisher of New Hampshire Magazine, one thing I’ve learned is that New Hampshire is always on the move. There are new restaurants, new businesses and new cultural attractions popping up everywhere. But you can also think of it as a family album, because there is so much here that is rooted in tradition, which speaks to a quality of life that has all but vanished in many parts of the country. Read up on the seven economic development regions of the state and you’ll get an idea of their uniqueness and of what a diverse and remarkable state this is. We asked newcomers to each region to explain why they chose to settle in their particular parts of the state — I hope their experiences and stories will help you navigate your new home.

to New Hampshire 1 If you’re new to the state or you’ve been here awhile and are still trying to figure out what makes it tick, then you’ve come to the right place. And either way, there’s a lot you’ll need to know.
One important fact is that you’re not alone. The majority of Granite Staters are from somewhere else. This fact once bothered locals who feared that their way of life was being challenged by “flatlanders” (which basically just means “from somewhere else” no matter how hilly it might be). The trend has been going on long enough that most locals have calmed down, but don’t be dismayed if you see the occasional bumper sticker reading “Welcome to NH, Now Go Home.” What the natives have learned is that most of the newcomers are eager to settle down and fit in. This probably describes you, or else you wouldn’t be reading this publication. Anyone who does arrive with an agenda soon encounters a hard fact: people don’t change New Hampshire nearly as much as New Hampshire changes people. You might even say, you don’t move into New Hampshire. New Hampshire moves into you. So have fun exploring and meeting the locals, but to begin your orientation and to really understand the Granite State, here are five words you need to know ...
Destination NH | 2019
Capt. John Smith (of Pocahontas fame) parked his fishing boat at our Isles of Shoals back in the early 1600s before anyone had tripped over Plymouth Rock. Apparently, Boston had a better PR team back during the Revolutionary War era, but the first real act of war against the British Crown took place here in Portsmouth (Google “Raid on Fort William and Mary”). We were the first state to declare independence from England, and when the founding documents of our country were being approved, it was New Hampshire that sealed the deal, becoming the ninth and binding signatory of the US Constitution.
Although we can’t claim to be the origin of words “Yankee ingenuity,” Dean it’s certainly part of the Kamen Granite State DNA, from the unique cog railway up Mt. Washington to the Segway (created in the Manchester millyard by genius inventor Dean Kamen). The first public library in the US was founded in Peterborough in 1833; and the first American man in space was Alan Shepard of Derry. Manufacturing is our largest industry and we have become a full-blown epicenter of the Boston-area tech explosion.
Our ratio of forested land to developed is one of the highest in the country. With outdoor tourism as one of our main industries, we are proud of our gorgeous environment and also eager to put it to wise use. We have the highest peak in the Northeast (Mt. Washington at 6,288 feet) and hundreds of lakes and wild rivers. We’re bounded on the west by the Connecticut River (and own the whole thing, bank to bank), on the east by mostly undeveloped forests of Maine and by the country’s shortest stretch of seacoast.
Some would say “quirky,” but it’s really deeper than that. Not only do we have the most pugnacious state motto in “Live Free or Die,” we’re home to the largest museum of classic arcade games (at Weirs Beach in Laconia); the birthplace of America’s first documented serial killer (H.H. Holmes of “Devil in the White City” fame was born in Gilmanton); the two most significant encounters with UFOs (Betty and Barney Hill’s abduction in Franconia and the “Incident at Exeter”); and the site of what is possibly (though not likely) the country’s oldest archeological site: America’s Stonehenge in Salem. Our highway welcome centers are also state-run liquor stores and we don’t require adults to wear seatbelts or motorcycle helmets, but we’re still one of the healthiest places in the country to live. Oh, and we were selected by the libertarian Free State Movement to be the new home for 20,000 liberty-minded individuals who hope to redefine our political structure over the next decade. We wish them luck and repeat that hard fact: You don’t so much move into New Hampshire as New Hampshire moves into you.
To be clear, we’re political but not especially partisan. Although the Republican Party was founded here in Exeter in 1853, the state has wobbled between Republican and Democratic over the decades, but the strongest political bent in the state is Independent. With our huge 424-member State Legislature (the largest in the country), our heritage of town meetings and our 100 plus years of hosting the First in the Nation Presidential Primary, folks here get to know their candidates (at every level) up close and personally and aren’t easily swayed by campaign promises.

To help you get your bearings on the state, it has been neatly divided into seven “economic development regions.” Sometimes these are obvious zones (like the Seacoast or Lakes Region), sometimes they are cobbled together and contain their own sub-sectors (like the Dartmouth/ Lake Sunapee Region), but each one is a treasure trove of places to explore. To help illustrate the characteristics of each region, we’ve asked several newcomers to share why they chose to live and start businesses in their particular part of New Hampshire. Their stories and more information on each region start on page 10.

Jessica Maxcy and Ted Seely of Newmarket found the pace of life and community they craved. There is a chill vibe here — people want to get to know you and not eat you up and spit you out!” She says that might sound a little on the harsh side, but that it’s still true. “All the cool and genuine people that live here,” she adds. “They live here for all the same reasons as us — we know we have found our people.”

The seaside community of Portsmouth
SNAPSHOT OF THE area Our short coastline (13 miles — 18 if you add the islands) is bursting with beautiful beaches, arts, music, theatre, an amazing dining scene with a focus on keeping it local, too many craft breweries to count and important historical landmarks. Oh, and if you’re a shop-til-you-drop type, the area’s many boutiques and other local stores are a delight. Here you can eat fried dough as you stroll the boardwalk at Hampton Beach, enjoy a show at the historic Music Hall, take in local art at one of the many galleries, sample brews with Granite State Growler Tours or walk through Portsmouth’s living history museum Strawbery Banke. Consider taking an ocean tour to the Isles of Shoals, which were settled in the 1600s and have a diverse history as an important fishing area in Colonial times, a hideout for pirates, a peaceful retreat for artists and much more.
After spending the day on her family’s lobster boat in Maine, Jessica Maxcy and her fiancé Ted Seely were dreading “another long, eight-hour drive to get back to the grind in the urban jungle on a beautiful New England summer day,” says Maxcy. Right then on the road, she started looking for jobs on Indeed. As soon as they got home, they applied to new positions, soon finding themselves ready to move to Newmarket. This turned out to be the perfect location, she says. It’s close to the “three coolest cities” (Portsmouth, Portland and Boston), plus it’s just a quick trip to the White Mountains or lakes where they enjoy camping, fly-fishing and snowmobiling. “We wanted to get married here,” she says. “It’s the place we love. We want to start a family, and we felt like we are very comfortable doing it here. New Hampshire feels friendly and safe, [there are] great schools and lots of space for kids to run around.” Maxcy, who is originally from Maine and lived and worked in Manhattan for almost 20 years, has a background in handbag design. Today she is the brand manager of a skincare line in Portland, Maine, and has her own straw beach bag line called Beach’d. “I’m glad I had the New York experience,” she says, “but the cities here have everything you need and the people are so great.

MerrimackValley New Explorations The winter weather was a bit of a learning curve but overall, relocating from Arizona to Manchester turned out to be the right move for this couple.
Destination NH | 2019
The State Capital in Concord
SNAPSHOT OF THE area The most populous region of New Hampshire, the Merrimack Valley is the cultural, commercial and political center of the Granite State. Named for the river that gave life to a booming textile industry, today the area’s mills are finding new life as luxury condos, breweries, shops, other businesses and, in Manchester, as a hub of science and technology. In the northern part of the region is Concord, the state capital. The Statehouse was built in 1818 and is the oldest such building in continuous use in the country. It’s not all tech, government and industry. Catch an independent film at Red River Theatres in Concord, sample fine dining in many cities and towns, and in Manchester, view famous works of art at the Currier Museum of Art, enjoy America’s pastime with the NH Fisher Cats at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium or see today’s biggest stars at the SNHU Arena.
“I think no matter how much we tried to prepare ourselves for the winter weather, we had to learn from some mistakes,” says Mary McIntyre. “It was such a drastic change — for me in particular. But we figured it out for the next winter.” When McIntyre landed a job as a producer at New Hampshire Public Radio in Concord, she says the opportunity was worth the big move — and the change in weather. She and her fiancé Eric Reitano (and their two dogs Milo and Brandi) now live in Manchester, where Reitano attends nursing school at Manchester Community College. The change was tougher for McIntyre, who grew up in Phoenix. Reitano, originally from Rochester, New York, started school in Phoenix after serving in the Air Force. Still, after seven years living in the heat of Arizona, getting used to snow and sleet all over again is a tough process. Getting to know their Mary McIntyre and Eric Reitano new home has been fun, says McIntyre. “I hadn’t spent much time in New England, but I liked the idea of exploring a new region,” she says. “It seemed like there was a little bit of everything in New Hampshire — access to the White Mountains, to the Seacoast and larger cities like Boston.” She says she’s grateful exploration is part of her job, adding that, “I’ve had a great time visiting and meeting people who work and live in different regions of the state.” Like many who live here, they like the fact that everything — from dining in downtown Manchester to the ability to take day trips to Portsmouth — are in close proximity. They also enjoy driving to the western part of the state and up to the White Mountains, where they can take the dogs hiking. For this summer, they have plans to check out the Lakes Region and Laconia Motorcycle Week in particular as Reitano is an avid biker. Though New England’s changing seasons inevitably bring winter, McIntyre is glad she gets to experience fall, which is now her favorite. “I love the scenery. I love apple picking and fall festivals. It’s really a magical time of year here,” she says.

The magic of the Monadnock Region led Ciarán Nagle and Tara Novak to the town of Peterborough.
Destination NH | 2019
Get a taste of local wine along with fantastic views of the lush countryside at Walpole Mountain Winery.
SNAPSHOT OF THE area With its beautiful fall foliage, farmland and scattered covered bridges, the Monadnock Region is the embodiment of picturesque New England. The region’s namesake, Mount Mondanock, is one of many idyllic spots for nature lovers, but culture abounds here as well. In fact, this part of the state has attracted artists and intellectuals for many years, including Ralph Waldo Emerson. The city of Keene is a vibrant college town with great food, shops, art galleries and more. Perhaps the most famous arts and culture attractions are the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough (a world-renowned artists’ retreat), the historic theatre troupe the Peterborough Players and Keene’s Colonial Theatre. In tiny Walpole you’ll find the famous chocolatier L.A. Burdick Chocolates, home to confections and a delightful restaurant. It may seem sleepy at first, but our western corner holds many surprises.

“In August 2018, while on our way to hike Mount Monadnock, we stumbled upon Parker and Sons in Peterborough. With that, the trap was set: Peterborough spun its magic, and we were spellbound,” says musician and food industry entrepreneur Ciarán Nagle. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Ciarán and his wife Tara Novak, who hails from Omaha, Nebraska, lived in Boston and Somersworth, Massachusetts, for two years before Peterborough lured them and their two children (Laura, 17 and Rachel, 12) to New Hampshire. Ciarán is the founding member of The Three Irish Tenors and Ciarán Nagle and Tara Novak together he and Tara have an Irish band, ISHNA. They also own a business called Foundation Kitchen, which they created in 2015. “Foundation Kitchen is a shared commissary kitchen work space that incubates startup food businesses,” explains Ciarán. “When moving from Ireland to the US in 2012,” says Ciarán, “my wife and I firmly vowed to live in a strong community to which we could positively contribute and be active for many years — a community full of the beauty of nature, forward, creative-thinking people, with a grounded connection to nature and an informed sense of the world.” They found everything they were hoping for in Peterborough. Immediately, he adds, they were welcomed by the community. Tara was invited to co-chair the Peterborough Arts Collective, and Ciarán was invited to join an “economic ecosystem dialogue based on a hub-and-spoke model,” he says. The idea, he learned, is to gather people from many areas — business, arts, agriculture and tourism — with someone heading up each “spoke” in an effort to “exchange ideas about how to support, nurture, and promote the resources of the region,” he says. Toady, he leads the food spoke, otherwise known as Grow Eat Drink Monadnock, which supports and advocates for local food and products. In addition to world-class dining, art, a strong sense of community and an emphasis on all things local, the area’s many natural wonders are important too, says Ciarán. “To have Pac Mondanock, Temple Mountain and, of course, Mount Monadnock right on our doorstep is just magical,” he says. “I have to say, we really love ‘Our Town’ of Peterborough.

Small City Life
SNAPSHOT OF THE area
Kate McNamee says she and her husband Tom live in “the best small town in New Hampshire, Claremont.” Ignoring for a moment that Claremont is, in fact, a city (the only one in rural Sullivan County), her delight with its provincial offerings is clarified by the fact that they moved here from bustling Reno, Nevada. Kate works as a Verizon Wireless Small Business Representative with Amcomm Wireless. Tom is a truck driver for Patten Trucking in nearby Newport. Tom has five grown children, two of whom live in state, and the couple is raising
Destination NH | 2019
three rescue dogs, Mr. Buddy, a yellow lab, Miss Ida (“our pocket Bluetick and boss of the pack,” says Kate) and Sammy, a coonhound mix (“who has a streak of the devil in her,” Kate adds.). The couple moved here to be closer to Tom’s oldest daughter after her son Liam was born with some health issues. All’s well, says Kate. “Liam is thriving and will be 2 in July,” she says. But the move was a plus for other reasons as well. “We are absolutely awed by the natural beauty and the variety of outdoor activities available,”says Kate. “And I was thrilled with the level of community involvement in Claremont. Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming.” Kate sticks with a “mostly vegan” diet, while Tom loves meat and dairy, but they find common ground at food spots like Best Subs on Washington Street, Farro Deli on Opera House Square and the Barn Café on Main Street in Claremont. “Oh, and Uptown Bakery is the best bakery,” says Kate. “Get the donuts!” The couple loves the easy access to so many cultural and recreational activities close to home and have no serious complaints, but, Kate says, “If you could do something about the ticks though ...”

Perhaps one of the state’s more overlooked regions is also one of its best. Here a love for the outdoors, art, culture and learning all come together to create a unique mix of everything that makes New Hampshire great. The region represents a harmonious dichotomy that’s anchored by the prestigious Ivy League school Dartmouth College in Hanover and the serene Lake Sunapee. The graceful grounds of the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site are juxtaposed against the groundbreaking discoveries at the worldrenowned DartmouthHitchcock Medical Center. This part of the state is also known for its world-class precision manufacturing. Industry giants Hypertherm in Hanover, Timken Aerospace in Lebanon and Thermal Dynamics, a division of Thermadyne, in West Lebanon all have operations here. Firearms manufacturer Sturm, Ruger & Co. has facilities in Newport.

Living the Dream
“I still pinch myself every day that I’m living here full time.”
— Jessica Graustein
Destination NH | 2019
Iconic Lake Winnipesaukee
SNAPSHOT OF THE area Located in the middle of the state, the Lakes Region comprises the areas surrounding Lake Winnipesaukee, Winnisquam Lake, Squam Lake and Newfound Lake. With all its aquatic beauty, it’s no surprise that this region has been a recreation destination for centuries (really). Lake Winnipesaukee serves as the region’s star attraction, first made popular in the 1700s by John Wentworth. Laconia, as the region’s largest city, is the business center for the area, with Wolfeboro, Meredith and Weirs Beach as the major tourist hubs. Tour the lake on the historic M/S Mount Washington, ride the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad, view the spectacle of Laconia Mortorcycle Week, shop the Tanger Outlets or learn about the surrounding natural world at the Squam Lakes Natural Science Center.
“I grew up in rural Illinois and Missouri, and have never really lost the need to be surrounded by fields and trees,” says Jessica Graustein. “Our house in Meredith feeds that need — six acres of meadow and woods with no other houses in sight. Now I get to use my training as an ecologist to manage our land while running a small literary press [Folded Word] from our kitchen.” Husband Kurt brought his IT job with him, she says, and now enjoys his home office with a view, while daughter Megan (22) is completing a pastry arts degree from Lakes Region Community College, and son Ian (21) works as a paraeducator at Inter-Lakes High School. Both kids were born and grew up in their previous home state of California. “We lived for a short time in Silicon Valley, but spent the bulk of our time in the suburbs of Sacramento,” says Jessica. Kurt actually grew up in the Lakes Region until he left to build his career. “But life has a sense of humor,” says Jessica, “so now he’s back.” They made the return move during California’s record-breaking sixyear drought. Jessica’s lung problems were aggravated by smog and wildfire smoke and the Lakes Region was one of the places she says she researched “while looking for air I could breathe without pharmaceutical help.” But New Hampshire’s businessfriendly policies played a big role too. Reasonable licensing fees, no sales tax paperwork, and a generous buffer before having to pay business profits tax have helped keep Folded Word running within the tight margins for sales of poetry, essay and short fiction collections, she says, adding, “New Hampshire writers and poets are amazingly supportive of each other.” Prior to moving, the Lakes Region with all its lakes, rivers, woods and lush gardens, had been the family’s summer happy place, says Jessica. Now, she says, “I still pinch myself every day that I’m living here full time.” Kurt and Jessica Graustein

Royce Bellini says that it was during a winter trip at Santa’s Village — visiting from their home in south Florida — that the family decided to move to North Conway. It was his wife Samantha’s first trip to New Hampshire. Helping to smooth over that winter introduction is the fact Royce has a deep connection to North Conway. Going back to the ’80s, his parents were close friends with Vito Marcello,who opened Bellini’s restaurant in North Conway as a tribute to his friend, Royce’s father. The friendship continues today with Vito’s son (also named Vito) who now owns Vito Marcello’s Italian Bistro, “The best Italian restaurant in America,” says Royce. After years of vacationing in North Conway to visit their family friends, it seemed like the right place to relocate. It just so happened that the inn at which they loved to stay — the School House Inn — was up for sale. “We decided to give it a go,” says Royce. They purchased the inn in March and have been permanent Granite State residents ever since. In addition to the inn, Samantha is a doctor of psychology Mt. Washington Valley Psychological Services and Bellini Psychology. Besides friends and fond childhood memories, Royce says that the appeal of a “slower-paced” life also drew them to make the move. They enjoy outdoor activities all year long, swimming in the Saco in the summer, snowmobiling in the winter, and driving Royce’s 1963 Oldsmobile along the mountain roads. What surprises him about New Hampshire these days, says Royce, is how tourism has expanded. Not too long ago, he says, it seemed as though visitors to North Conway were limited to the New England area or New York and New Jersey. Now, he adds, he regularly sees people from all over the world. When asked to pick a favorite thing about New Hampshire, Royce says that’s impossible. “Low taxes, low crime and quality people,” he begins. “Outdoor activities year-round. Mountains. Great shopping and dining. History and culture. Is there really anything else needed?”

Great North Woods
Lower taxes and housing prices drew Christian and Sara Hodges to Berlin, but it was the landscape that ultimately won them over.
Christian and Sara Hodges
Christian and Sara Hodges moved to Berlin after Christian got out of the military back in January. He now works at the local Walmart and Sarah remotely as a teacher. Christian had been stationed in Maryland for the previous two years, and Sara had moved from California to be with him about a year ago. Sara says Christian has been studying for an electronics engineering degree online, and New Hampshire seemed to have a lot to offer. “Not so much in the Berlin area,” says Sara, “but Berlin had more affordable houses, so we chose here until he could finish his degree.” They say they love the mountain and river scenery,
relatively low taxes, low crime rates and relaxed gun laws. Also, says Sara, “There seem to be more small businesses than chain stores. New Hampshire seems like a great opportunity for people with an entrepreneurial spirit.” We’ve only been here a few months, so we haven’t done much exploring but we love the shops on Berlin’s Main street,” says Sara. “We only wish there were more of them.” But hands down, the biggest plus for the Hodges is summed up in two words: “The landscape, Sara exclaims, “The hills, the rivers, the lakes — everything is gorgeous.”

Destination NH | 2019
The Great North Woods region is a wonderland for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. The northernmost section of the state has the fewest people but plenty of hidden gems that are well worth exploring, whether you enjoy skiing, hiking, fishing or even just long drives through gorgeous scenery. Once home to a booming paper mill industry, this region is undergoing an outdoor tourism renaissance. Ride a network of snowmobile trails in the winter, and in the summer drive on 1,000 miles of trails via ATV at Bear Rock Adventures in Pittsburg. Head to Jericho Mountain State Park for more ATV fun and the annual Jericho ATV Festival held in August. Nearby, the Connecticut Lakes Natural Area has more than 25,000 acres on tap for fishing and other outdoor activities. Hit the rapids with ELC Outdoors, or sign on for one of their many other guided adventures. In Berlin, connect with current arts and culture at the St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts.

un in New Hampshire comes in many forms — from fairs that celebrate our agrarian roots and summer music festivals to wine-tasting benefit galas and snow-sculpting competitions. Here are some of New Hampshire Magazine’s favorite, can’t-miss, big events, plus some of the smaller, perhaps quirkier happenings that often fly right by the tourists.
The Jaffrey Festival of Fireworks
Though the NH Music Festival lasts for a month and takes place in several venues, this celebration of classical music tends to take people by surprise. The NHMF presents world-class performances of symphonic, choral and chamber music that are meant to be accessible for all. Concerts mostly take place in Plymouth and Wolfeboro. July 2-August 1. Visit nhmf.org for a complete schedule of events.
Opera North is a New Hampshire gem,

though it’s somewhat under recognized. This summer you can catch performances of “Macbeth” (August 4-10, Lebanon Opera House) and “Pirates of Penzance” (July 26-28, Blow-Me-Down Farm), but if you want to build some real artistic cred, don’t miss the Hoe Down at Blow-MeDown Farm. For the second year, Big Apple Circus director Mark Lonergan and a team of professional circus artists
each summer, local company Atlas Fireworks closes out the season with a bang — lots of them, actually. Jaffrey Festival of Fireworks, August 17, Silver Ranch Airpark, Jaffrey. Visit jaffreyfireworks.com for more information. One of the most charming Fourth of July celebrations is held in historic New Boston. This cherished tradition has taken
place for 89 years. It starts with the barn dance, and continues to July 4 with an award-winning parade, chicken barbecue, music, games and fireworks. Visit newboston4thofjuly.org for more information.
Fall » Fall is fair season in New Hampshire,
and if you want a taste of tradition, then consider one of the oldest and most iconic fairs we’ve got — the 142-yearold Deerfield Fair. September 26-29, deerfieldfair.com
For small-town fall celebrations, consider the delightful Apple Harvest Day in downtown Dover (October 5, dovernh. org/apple-harvest-day), the Giant Pumpkin Weigh-off and Regatta on the banks of the Piscataquog River in Goffstown (October 19-20; goffstownmainstreet.org), the Warner Fall Foliage Festival (72nd annual festival on October 11-13, wfff.org) or the smaller Sandwich Fair in Center Sandwich (October 12-14, thesandwichfair.com). will team up with Opera North to create a unique blend of acrobatics and opera music. The location itself is a historic part of the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Park, which Opera North is turning into a new, exciting venue. July 12-14, BlowMe-Down Farm, Cornish. Visit operanorth.org for tickets and more information. Who doesn’t love fireworks? At the end of
Fall in New Hampshire wouldn’t be complete without a pumpkin festival. One of the biggest is NH Pumpkin Festival in Laconia. This year’s celebration of our official state fruit is from October 18-19. Trust us, you’ve never seen so many jacko-lanterns in one place. The’re a ton going on here — see nhpumpkinfestival.com for a complete schedule of events.
The early-October Milford Pumpkin Festival is a little smaller in scope, but is no less fun, and this year it’s celebrating 30 years of pumpkin-tainment. Most events are held right on the charming Milford Oval in the heart of the small town. Enjoy fireworks, the giant pumpkin weigh-in, a talent show, craft fairs and more at this charming celebration. October 11-13, milfordpumpkinfestival.org In September, two can’t-miss festivals take place in vastly different areas of the state. On the Seacoast, the annual Hampton Beach Seafood Festival, happening in early September, is your chance to stuff yourself silly with everything from lobster rolls to fried scallops. See hamptonbeachseafoodfestival.com for more information. Up north, get your kilt and head to the New Hampshire Highland Games, taking place from September 20-22 at Loon Mountain in Lincoln. More than 50 clans gather to compete in Scottish heavy athletics, enjoy good food, music and more. Visit nhscot. org for a complete list of events. Halloween enthusiasts should not miss the
Portsmouth Halloween Parade, a commu-
nity tradition that’s currently celebrating its 25th year. All are welcome to participate in this all-inclusive event, but you better be on top of your costume game. Group theme costumes are not uncommon, so get creative with your friends and family. Just no motorized vehicles allowed. Learn more at portsmouthhalloweenparade.org.
Four Seasons of Events Winter » If you’re not into snow sports, no worries — there’s
plenty of other fun to be had during the cold months. For holiday celebrations, you really can’t beat the incredible month-long series of events in downtown Portsmouth called Vintage Christmas. Not only is this a premier local shopping destination, the city is filled with music, the Candlelight Stroll, theater and more. Visit vintagechristmasnh.org for a complete schedule. A smaller, but no less charming historical Christmas experience can be had during the Christmas at Canterbury weekends at the Canterbury Shaker Village.

The magic of wild lupine in Sugar Hill
You can’t avoid the snow, so embrace it at the annual Snow Sculpting Competition held in Jackson. Weather permitting, this is usually held in late January or early February. Dozens of New England’s most talented sculpting teams will carve up snow to make amazing works of art. See jacksonnh.com for more information. A lesserknown winter celebration happens in early February at the Colebrook Winter Carnival. Enjoy the pancake breakfast, ice carving demonstrations, snow bocce and more. See northcountrychamber.org for more information.
Spring » At first glance, spring (we call it “mud season”) seems
like a slow time in New Hampshire, but if you look closely, there’s still plenty going on. First of all, warmer days mean the sap is flowing and maple syrup can be made. Don’t let anyone fool you — Vermont may have the maple rep, but we’ve got plenty of the local sweet stuff. The mid-March/early-April New Hampshire Maple Weekends are your chance to visit working sugar houses (there are over 60) to see how maple syrup is made. See nhmapleproducers.com for details. On the cusp of spring and summer is the Chowderfest & Brews celebration at Waterville Valley. Held in Town Square in late May, area restaurants compete for the coveted Golden Clam and regional brewers offer samples.

hen thinking about New Hampshire, you’re forgiven if farmland and mountains come to mind rather than provocative plays and gallery openings. Yes, our forests, lakes, oceans, mountains and other sites of natural beauty are some of the big perks to calling the Granite State home. But if you’re ready to trade your muddy hiking boots for dress shoes (or just regular sneakers), then you’re in luck — a vibrant arts scene awaits discovery. New Hampshire has a history of inspiring great artists, such as the mid-19th century painters of the White Mountain School and writer, naturalist and philosopher Henry David Thoreau. Today, New Hampshire continues to draw and showcase talent from New Hampshire and beyond. Though you’ll find artists and galleries all over the state, a great place to start is at McGowan Fine Art in Concord. This contemporary gallery has been a home to local and New England artists — in a variety of mediums — since 1980. For those on the Seacoast, Nahcotta in Portsmouth has become a mainstay since its opening in 2000. Returning to the White Mountains, 42 Maple Contemporary Art Center in Bethlehem is part gallery, part entertainment space and part studio housed in an 1877 church. For 50 years, the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery at Keene State College has hosted work by local and international artists, and provided a gathering place for students, artists, educators and patrons. In Manchester, two newcomers to the city (which is already home to the renowned Currier Museum of Art) are already doing big things. Kelley Stelling Contemporary gallery is located on Elm Street and Jupiter Hall on Hanover Street is an intriguing multipurpose venue. Perhaps it’s something in the water (or granite) that makes New Hampshire a continuous source of artistic inspiration. In the western corner of the state is the charming town of Peterborough, itself inspiration for the Thornton Wilder play “Our Town” (which, by the way, you can occasionally catch at the historic Peterborough Players, founded in 1933). Here, tucked into the woods, is the renowned MacDowell Colony, a retreat for artists of all types. Founded in 1907, it is the oldest such retreat in the country. Over the years it has supported composers, authors, painters, filmmakers, poets and more from
Willa Cather to Michael Chabon. Each year in August on Medal Day, the public is welcome (with free admission) to explore the grounds. You can also attend the ceremony where the Edward MacDowell Medal is awarded to “an artist of enduring vision and creativity.” Five poets from New Hampshire served as US Poets Laureate, including iconic New England poet Robert Frost. The RobCurrier Museum of Art in Manchester
ert Frost farm in Derry still stands, and its grounds are open to the public. Take a tour, listen to a reading or simply walk along the trails through the landscape that inspired his writing. In fact, Frost attributed many of his poems to his years spent at this two-story white clapboard farmhouse. The Granite State’s poetic tradition continues with the help of the Poetry Society of New Hampshire, which hosts an annual poetry fest in September at Manchester’s New Hampshire Institute of Art. It’s also a great resource for other poetry events happening around the state. Continuing in the vein of the written word, New Hampshire also claims a number of famous authors: John Irving,
J.D. Salinger, Grace Metalious and Jodi Picoult are among them. Aspiring authors will want to hook up with the NH Writer’s Project, which organizes meet-ups, workshops, readings, book clubs, conferences, socials and much more. If you want to find a literary event or like-minded folks, then check out this excellent local organization. Lest you think it’s all painters and wordsmiths, New Hampshire is no stranger to the performing arts. The historic Peterborough Players were mentioned earlier, but there are two other places to soak up a unique mix of small-town New Hampshire charm, history and great performances. Along with the Players, the New London Barn Playhouse and the Barnstormers Theatre in Tamworth represent three of the oldest — and most respected — summer theaters in the country. All three opened back in the 1930s, and each is home to excellent companies and cherished traditions. If you want more history with your plays, musicals, concerts, film screenings or comedy shows, nearly each region of the state has a beautiful, fully restored historic venue. Among them are the two Colonial Theatres, one in Keene and one in Bethlehem, The Music Hall in Portsmouth, The Palace Theatre in Manchester and The Rochester Opera House in Rochester. Music of all genres is in no shortage, but New Hampshire happens to have an abundance of ways to enjoy classical music. With the New Hampshire Philharmonic, Symphony NH, the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra and the Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra, you’re able to enjoy a huge range of performances around the state. One of the summer festival season’s crown jewels is the New Hampshire Music Festival, which aims to make classical music accessible to all with a month of concerts. Fans of the blues should follow the Granite State Blues Society for the lowdown on concerts and festivals, and jazz lovers will want to catch a show at Pittman’s Freight Room in Laconia or the Purple Pit Coffee Lounge in Bristol. Finally, one of the state’s hidden gems mixes nature, history, art and music together at one gorgeous estate. The Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish is the former home of one of America’s premier artists, sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Spend a summer day strolling the incredible grounds and galleries that are peppered with over 100 of his artworks. We could go on, but consider this an excellent starting point to understand our cultural roots and vibrant present. Destination NH | 2019 33

Raleigh Wine Bar & Eatery » Portsmouth
At Raleight Wine Bar and Eatery in Portsmouth, find creative, elegant food expertly paired with natural wines.
All it took was a wine appreciation course in college for proprietor Nimi Idnani to rethink her career plans. Ever since, the 31-year-old has been traveling and studying wine and hopes to eventually attain Master of Wines level. At Raleigh, a modern, bright white space with large windows offering views of Memorial Bridge, Idnani works with her chef, Jeremy Glover, planning exquisite bites that pair perfectly with her wine collection of about 80 carefully selected bottles — many naturally produced — from Alsace to Germany to the Loire Valley. There is also a nice selection of wines by the glass, focusing on complexity. Find more than cheeses and charcuterie, as the menu changes often, offering a short selection of clever entrées, a foie gras with streaks of cocoa appetizer and a blue fin toro tuna tartare covered with thinly sliced cucumber dusted with baby basil flowers. There is even a goat dish, which surely has a wine to match. Not to miss: soft boiled egg appetizer blended with spices, all carefully returned to the shell and topped with trout roe. Opens at 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday with a brunch menu. 67 State St., Portsmouth (603) 427-8459, raleighwinebar.com Destination NH | 2019

The menu caters to all kinds of dietary needs and tastes, offering options such as beet ravioli with cashew cheese for vegans, vegetarian dishes that change with the seasons, and dishes for those who follow a paleo or gluten-free diet. Respect is also given to conscientious omnivores, who will find sustainable seafood and local grass-fed beef. The wholesome feel is further enhanced by plating on rustic, handthrown stoneware. Relish in the menu, as dining here takes the guilt level down a few notches. Not to miss: dairy- and gluten-free beet ravioli. Closed Tuesday and Wednesday, open at 5 p.m. for dinner. Enjoy their café next door for breakfast and lunch. 13358 White Mountain Hwy., North Conway (603) 356-6068, tableandtonic.com

Greenleaf » Milford
If you’re interested in discovering local, farm-to-table dining, then you need to know the name Keith Sarasin. For years, he’s championed local sourcing and farms, eventually founding the Farmers Dinner, a farm-to-table event planning company that hosts seasonal dinners around the state. His latest venture, Greenleaf, which he opened with Chef Chris Viaud, is a celebration of local, fresh and seasonal ingredients, sourced from New Hampshire and New England farms whenever possible. Find an exciting, but approachable menu with a nod to regional classics as well as ever-changing seasonal dishes. — Erica Thoits

New Restaurants Osteria Poggio » Center Harbor
Once the sous chef at the Local Eatery in Laconia, Kaylon Sweet now manages his own spot in the former Coe House/Lavinia’s in Center Harbor. The interior was beautifully redone a number of years ago, and little was changed to disturb it. A great feature are the two bars, one upstairs and one down, that offer convivial meeting spots for casual dining, while the sophisticated rooms with French wallpaper suggest a place for a more relaxed meal. Sweet focuses on Italian food, his personal favorite, as he trained, in part, at the Apicius International School of Hospitality in Florence. All pastas are housemade, including a sausage ravioli with meatballs and braised pork with artichoke ravioli. Even the pizza, hot from the wood-fired oven, is given a special touch and served on a wooden board. Pastry Chef Bella Price is a wizard with panna cotta and gelato, packing the flavors of the season into the dessert course, while bar manager Andy McClure creates his own bitters, shrubs and even a Pernod-style liqueur for building inventive cocktails. Not to miss: meatballs and ravioli, a fall-inspired panna cotta and Professor Plum cocktail while dining in the cupola atop the building. Reserve it and tip well, as it’s three flights up. Open for dinner 5 p.m., closed Monday, while brunch on Sunday is a new option. There’s the best of both worlds at Osteria Poggio in Center Harbor — find casual fining in the cozy bars, or enjoy an elegant meal in the dining rooms.

Cornerstone Artisanal Pizza & Craft Beer » Portsmouth
This is so much more than another pizza joint. The old Frank Jones Brew Yard buildings have been renovated over the past couple of years into a hip center for businesses of all sorts. Cornerstone is located inside a multi-use building, and features the original brick walls and a few mechanical contraptions, now just wall art. Cornerstone was started in Ogunquit, Maine, but this location has expanded the menu beyond their tasty wood-oven pizza to main dishes featuring duck breast or seafood, sticky ribs apps and interesting sandwiches piled with butternut squash. Enjoy it all in this multilevel inviting space. Chef Andrew Morin has been given the reins to up the ante, plus find a nice selection of craft brews on tap. Not to miss: The duck entrée of the day. Open at 11:30 a.m. daily for lunch and dinner. 110 Brewery Ln., Portsmouth (603) 294-0965, cornerstoneportsmouth.com
In addition to the wood-fired pizza, find entrées like the dish pictured above — duck breast with bordelaise sauce, butternut squash purée, quinoa and wild rice, beechwood mushrooms, almond crust and a honey coriander glaze.

New Restaurants 1750 Taphouse » Bedford
Here is a prime example of what’s happening in the New Hampshire food scene. The former Tek-Nique, which was known for elegant dining, was cleared out, from the too-tiny bar to the white tablecloths. In its place is a lively, completely reimagined casual restaurant with a much larger bar — in fact, it’s the focal point. Behind the bar is an impressive draft list featuring 40 craft beers, many of them local. The star of the menu is the brick-oven pizza, but other dishes, such as burgers and larger entrées, are offered too. Families fill the booths lining the walls and the bar is often hopping. Must be the perfect answer to a night out for a breadth of local citizenry. Not to miss: 1750 pizza with the works. Open for lunch and dinner, daily and Sunday brunch. 170 Route 101, Bedford (603) 488-2573, 1750taphouse.com The 1750 Taphouse offers everything from brick-oven pizza to burgers and larger meals, plus a nice selection of local craft beer.

Casual and quick doesn’t mean poor quality, or at least it doesn’t at this Asian fusion restaurant. The ramen options – with housemade noodles – are hard to pass up, but if you can get beyond the comforting bowls, try the bao. They also have a nice selection of local beer, and the upbeat, modern atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Noodz is the sister restaurant of local favorite Birch on Elm (located just down the street), an upscale tapas place with excellent craft cocktails.

New Restaurants Lure Bar and Kitchen A new partnership has taken over the former Banana Republic retail space, presenting another dining option in Portsmouth. They plan to focus on seafood, small, shareable plates, and offer a modest raw bar along with tinned seafood — such as squid in ink and smoked sardines from Spain — for a tapas feel. Chef Brendan Levin, formerly the chef at 3S Artspace, encourages folks to sit and nibble, as that’s the way he likes to eat. With a focus on an intriguing dining menu, also expect to see a nice selection of white and sparkling wines, while a variety of gins and gin cocktails will highlight the spirit offerings. Beverage manager Megan McNeil is crafting many of the ingredients, including bitters and tonic. The space centers on a large, white marble bar and a reclaimed wood accent wall, both fostering a casual beach atmosphere. Flip flops welcome! Not to miss: charcuterie plate with a glass of Cava. As of press time in early October, Lure Bar and Kitchen was scheduled to open later in the month. Opens at 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday; bar opens at 4:30 p.m. with light snacks. 100 Market St., Portsmouth (603) 373-0535, Facebook

Care & Living
ccording to the 2015 US Census estimates, New Hampshire ties for the second oldest population when it comes to median age, a title we share with
Vermont – the median age in both states is at 42.8, with Maine just a step behind. In fact, we’ve traded this title with our neighbors over the years. There’s a litany of stats that show the state is aging, and as a result, it’s more than ready to offer its population anything and everything older residents may need — starting with a reason to be here. The “Live Free or Die” motto describes the attitude as well as a way of life for many New Hampshire retirees. There’s a robust feeling of independence here in the Granite State, which has to do with a tangible sense of being connected to the place and to its traditions. Like all of New England, the cost of living tends to run higher than the national average. Yet compared to some other parts of the Northeast, New Hampshire can be considered a bargain. The biggest plus is that the state’s income tax of 5 percent does not apply to salaries or IRA distributions. In addition, there is no general sales tax or personal income tax. When it comes to staying active, the Granite State has an abundance of natural beauty for retirees who appreciate the outdoors, including the majestic White Mountains, with more than 1,200 hiking trails, top-notch skiing and stunning fall foliage, more than 270 lakes and ponds for boating and fishing and six public beaches along its picturesque, 13 miles of seacoast that are perfect for sailing, swimming or simply enjoying the sun and sand. New Hampshire also has a large range of care options available to retirees, including about 30 hospitals, 28 assisted living facilities, 62 skilled nursing and rehab centers, and a plethora of medical and non-medical home care agencies. Overall, the Granite State is a welcoming destination to spend your retirement years. In this section, you will find a list of retirement, assisted living and residential care facilities in New Hampshire.

Chambers of Commerce
lthough we think of them as being as American as cherry pie, chambers of commerce are actually a European innovation that dates back to the 16th century. The oldest known existing
chamber in the English-speaking world with continuous records, the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, was founded in 1783. New Hampshire’s many chambers of commerce are a good way to get detailed information about local businesses but also about traveling in specific areas of the state. They can recommend great places to stay and things to do in the towns and cities in their areas.

NH State T
here are 93 state parks in New Hampshire that range from ocean and lake beaches to campgrounds, historic sites, natural areas, trail networks and
much more. Here are some of our favorites, but for a complete list, and more information, make sure to visit nhstateparks.org.
Ocean State Parks
Our coastline may be small, but we managed to fit five state parks into 13 miles (or 18 depending on who you ask). Hampton Beach 160 Ocean Blvd., Hampton Perhaps the most famous of our beaches, Hampton is home to a lively boardwalk with shops, food, bars and entertainment. In fact, during the summer and early fall, there’s a busy schedule of events including the marquee shindig, the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival in September. Visit hamptonbeach. org for more information. Jenness State Beach 2280 Ocean Blvd., Rye Keep in mind that the parking lot is relatively small — there are just 67 spots, so get there early. This is a great family spot that's ideal for swimming and picnicking. There are bathhouses onsite and lifeguards.
North Hampton Beach Rte. 1A, North Hampton There is a bathhouse here, but there are no lifeguards on duty. North Beach 920 Ocean Blvd., Hampton Lovely sandy beach and nice places to picnic. Lifeguards are on duty daily through mid-August. There is a bathhouse available. Wallis Sands State Beach 1050 Ocean Blvd., Rye Enjoy views of the Isles of Shoals, plentiful parking, a shop with food and drinks, a large bathhouse with showers, a picnic area and daily lifeguarding until 5 p.m. through September 5.
Lake State Parks
We may be the Granite State, but an alternate moniker could very well be the Lakes State. With 959 lakes, there’s plenty of freshwater fun to be had. We’re going to give you some insider info — on weekends, the major lake parks tend to reach

capacity by midmorning. Here are some of the more out-of-the-way parks that won’t be as mobbed. Echo Lake 68 Echo Lake Rd., Conway The impressive 700-foot Cathedral Ledge towers over this pristine mountain lake. Echo Lake is located within Franconia Notch State Park in the White Mountains. Forest Lake State Park 397 Forest Lake Rd., Dalton Created in 1935, this is one of New Hampshire’s 10 original state parks. Enjoy the 200-foot sandy beach, picnicking, fishing and more. Wadleigh State Park 78 Wadleigh State Park, Sutton Tall pines shade the picnic areas located on the shores of Kezar Lake. Wentworth State Park 297 Governor Wentworth Hwy. Wolfeboro The park spans 50 acres and is located on the shore of scenic Wentworth Lake.
Here’s a tip for talking like a New Hampshire native — when someone says, “North of the Notches,” they’re referring to the upper half of the state accessed through three narrow mountain passes — Crawford, Dixville and Franconia Notches. Crawford Notch State Park 1464 US Rte. 302 Harts Location This park has 5,775 acres that provide access to tons of hiking trails, waterfalls, fishing, wildlife viewing, campsites and spectacular mountain views. If it’s wilderness you seek, then this is the place. Dixville Notch State Park 1212 West Rte. 26, Dixville Dixville Notch State Park may seem small at just 127 acres, but you won’t want to miss its scenic gorge and waterfalls. Then there’s the spot that gives anyone afraid of heights nightmares — various

trails lead to the infamous Table Rock. Beware — this hike is not for the faint of heart. Franconia Notch State Park 260 Tramway Dr. Franconia/Lincoln We saved the biggest for last. Franconia Notch State Park is located in the heart of the White Mountain National Forest. The notch itself is a spectacular mountain pass traversed by a unique parkway that extends from the Flume Gorge (also a state park) at the south to Echo Lake at the north. For 8 miles, I-93 winds between the dramatic peaks of the Kinsman and Franconia mountain ranges. While in the park, you can fly fish at Profile Lake, bike on the Recreational Trail, watch for rock climbers, hawks and falcons on Cannon Cliffs, hike on the Appalachian Trail, ride the aerial tramway at Cannon Mountain or just enjoy all that nature has to offer.
Why not learn something while taking in the views? Daniel Webster Birthplace 131 North Rd. Franklin This is the early childhood home of Daniel Webster, one of our country's most respected orators and statesmen. It also provides a glimpse of 1700s farm life in the infant years of our country. Fort Constitution Off Rte. 1B at US Coast Guard Station, 25 Wentworth Rd. New Castle This late 1700s fort is located on a peninsula on the northeast corner of New Castle Island. It overlooks both the Piscataqua River and the ocean and is an excellent spot for a picnic. Fort Stark 211 Wildrose Ln. New Castle Fort Stark overlooks the Piscataqua River, Little Harbor and the ocean, and was named in honor of John Stark, commander of NH forces at the 1777 Battle of Bennington. General Stark was responsible for the state’s “Live free or die” motto.
NH hosts 161 miles of the Appalacian trail and some of its toughest terrain.
Franklin Pierce Homestead 301 2nd NH Turnpike Hillsborough The 14th president of the US may not have been the best (in fact, he’s often referred to as the country’s worst president), but he’s New Hampshire’s nonetheless. This site was his home from infancy until his marriage in 1834. Robert Frost Farm 122 Rockingham Rd. Derry This was the home of Robert Frost and his family from 1900-1911. Frost, one of the nation's most acclaimed poets, attributed many of his poems to memories from the Derry years. Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion 375 Little Harbor Rd. Portsmouth This is the former home of New Hampshire's first royal governor, Benning Wentworth, who served from 1741 to 1767. The rambling 40-room mansion, which overlooks Little Harbor, is one of the most A Newcomer’s Guide outstanding homes remaining of the Colonial era. Its stateliness and impressive interior and furnishings reflect aristocratic life in Portsmouth in the 1700s.
