From the heavily forested north country, to its rugged mountains and clear blue lakes, to its historic coast, New Hampshire is naturally a magnet for vacationers and homeowners. When the snows fall in the winter, New Hampshire becomes a true winter wonderland. You can enjoy skiing on spectacular terrain that ranges from novice to expert. When summer arrives, boaters and swimmers head for the sparkling blue lakes, hikers and campers seek out the beauty of the mountains, and beach lovers head for the ocean. No words can adequately describe what happens in fall in New Hampshire. The hills become a festival of fall foliage color, the days are clear and crisp, the skies of the deepest blue, and the lakes sparkle with brilliant sunlight.
