New Hampshire brings together all the best that New England has to offer, and serves it without any sales or income tax.

It is surprising that one hears more about the Green Mountains of Vermont, when the White Mountains of New Hampshire are not only much more impressive - actual mountains as compared with foothills - but also contain the Presidental Range which includes Mt. Washington.
The small cities are none-the-less vibrant, and the towns are quaint and charming.

The climate produces four very distinct seasons, and while the winter is quite cold, it helps one appriciate the summer.
While New Hampshire does have a small seacoast, the Lakes Region is truley unrivaled in New England.

From the rocky shores of Portsmouth, through the small cities of Manchester and Concord, past the shimmering lakes, and up into the awe-insipring mountains (a three-hour drive) New Hampshire has it all.

White Mtns alone rate a 5 and the Kangamangus Hwy is spectacular. Good to great skiing (eastern) and Wildcat is a hoot especially in a blizzard. Red state turning blue, God Help Us All...

A good state- but taxes are not as low as the previous poster said. Sure there is no state income tax or sales tax- but real estate taxes are astronomical. The state is pleasant nonetheless, with nice summers and rather harsh winters in the up country.

New Hampshire is a good state- politics are a wee conservative for New England, but it is changing and becoming more open and liberal. Nice towns and small cities that offer a high quality of life. Winters upstate are a wee harsh, however. People tend to be a wee cold and reserved, but genuine and 'up front' with you, which is generally what you find in most of New England. Lots of 'outdoor' things to do. Great food and resorts. Some decent beaches on the short shore of the Atlantic.

A nice state, with much to offer. Winters are a bit long away from the coast- too many hangups on taxes, and a rather confused attitude on the states political attitude. But becoming slightly more progressive in time.

One of the best states to live. Low crime rate and high quality of life with suberb services for the young and the old. Quaint towns and villages. Manchester is a nice urban center. Weather in the north a bit servere, but this does little to degrade the state.

New Hampshire is a very pretty state with many charming towns. The people are generally friendly with a New England reserve.

I've never had the privlege of visiting this beautiful state, but after reading the comments would like to pack up and go there now. Out of 30-40 comments -only a couple rated lower than a three. Moreover, the fact that the ocean and mountains are within a two hour drive combined with four seasons and beautiful scenery...with NICE people...yes...I could do this.

Beautiful, clean, safe and an overall cheap place to live (taxes are low, especially when compared to surrounding states). My experiences here have been enjoyable overall.

Like most states in New England- New Hampshire offers a decent quality of life- and in my visits have been impressed by the states abundance of natural beauty and the friendly and down to earth people.

New Hampshire is a very good state- with low crime, charming towns and small cities that offer a superlative quality of life. The climate is a bit toward the harsh side- winters can be daunting. Best months are from May through early November.

The granite state does rise above the genre of strip mall hell- sure the southern part of the state is becoming A Boston suburb- but is that a bad thing? I can think of hundreds of areas in the country that would love to be in such a position- try driving throughout most of California- like Orange county- San Diego- or the drive from San Jose to San Francisco up the El Camino Real-talk about strip mall hell- it makes New Hampshire look like peace in paradise. The state is moderating its politcal views as well- becoming part of all blue New England. Charming towns with a long and distinquished history and real people that are open minded and fair- and not overly materialitic- sounds like a damn solid place to live.

New Hampshire is nice. The White Mountains are very pretty and the state is full of charming little towns. Portsmouth is a cool little city. It's very historic and has a number of houses dating back to the 1700's and 1800's. Lots of scenic waterfront and postcard New England scenery with rocky shore and lighthouses. On the downside southern NH is turning suburban very fast (could be coined northern Mass'). Cross the state line from Mass into NH on any major road and you will enter strip mall hell. Politics seem to sway back and forth between conservative and liberal here. If you want to see the best of New England I'd reccommend Vermont or Maine however NH does claim Mount Washington (very impressive) and good skiing.

A state with a high quality of life. Many services that help the general populace- no sales tax, but high real estate taxes. Great schools and colleges. A small shore line on the Atlantic at Portsmouth. Nice towns and small cities. A state with countless reasons to live and visit. If you are seeking a high quality of life- low crime rate and friendly real people- choose NH.

I don't have anything to add to Spacewolf's excellent comment except to say I think these folks have cute accents. So quaint.

The least progressive of all the New England states- NH is the antithesis of Vermont-Portsmouth, Dover and Concord are very pretty New England towns- its just that Vermont is better, as is Maine- if you like Northern New England. Good thing is the state is becoming more moderate in its views- getting closer idealogically to the rest of New Englands growing progressive idealogy- as opposed to the south, southwest, plains and mountains states backwardness and right wing religous zealot idealogy.

I know this show got cancelled over a year ago, and it only had a few episodes, but i would live in Poland, New Hampshire, or a town like it. I don't know why, but i would.

I spent 2 years of college in New Hampshire at New England College (Henniker). Beautiful scenery and the stress level is so low you may be comotose. Lake Winapasaukee (spelling?) is breathtaking and the Connotook River (sp) in Henniker was equally as good. Live Free or Die is an appropriate motto. You have to like the outdoors and be agrarian to like the state. I have not been back since the early 90's, but will be back some fall.

New Hampshire is my favorite upepr New England state. Not quite as desolate as Maine, a bit less sophisticated than Vermont, but a pleasant state overall. It's probably a bit overstated, but I once had a conversation with a New Hampshire resident (who worked across the river in Vermont), and his comments on the differences between Vermonters (too liberal, all Democrats) and New Hampshireites (conservatives, trustworthy, relatively speaking) were amusing to say the least. His advice to me was If you ever shake hands with someone from Vermont, after the handshake check to see that all of your fingers are still there. They'll steal anything they can!). Anyway, when I lived in Connecticut, I often took day trips to NH, just for the scenery and to try new spots to eat (Peter Christian's in New London, and the New London Inn were favorites. Best French toast I ever had was at New London Inn).

I haven't been to New Hampshire since I was 5 I think. It was such a beautiful place, and everyone there is so welcoming. They have the most beautiful beaches and the restuarants are to die for. It's a pretty small state, but well worth going to.

NH is a most wonderful place- you have the ocean, mountains, close to Boston- and no sales or income tax! You can hike, ski, bike, swim, boat, anything. Granted, the southern part of the state has been hit with Mass. people moving up and has very much become a suburb of Boston, but go to the North Country or the Seacoast- you can't be disappointed!
