Tourism is an industry in New Hampshire. While winter means skiing, snowmobiling and maple syrup, spring and summer are when people flock to our lakes and seacoast. In the fall, tourists are in pursuit of our trees changing color.
New Hampshire leads the lower 48 states in tree coverage at 89%. We have trees. 🙂
Leaf Peepers are the 8.2 Million people who visit New Hampshire and spend over $1.6 Billion between September and November hoping to see color. We even have a website devoted to Leaf Peepers and a foliage tracking site and app. Leaf peeping is big business.
Come visit, enjoy our history and natural beauty, sit a spell, have some fresh apple cider, and please bring a rake. 🙂
