Hike on a trip to New Hampshire during the Indian Summer in the White Mountains and explore the colonial buildings in one of the first European settlements in America.
New Hampshire is located in the northeastern United States and belongs to the so-called New England states. The landscape is characterized on the one hand by the Atlantic coast and on the other by the snow-capped peaks of the White Mountains. The so-called Granite State is about the size of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and is inhabited by approximately 1.3 million people.
A round trip is recommended to explore all of New Hampshire’s highlights. You should definitely visit the capital Concord. There are numerous historic colonial-style buildings here. The State Capitol with its golden dome and the old Victorian-style post office are particularly worth seeing.
The White Mountains, part of the Appalachian Mountains in the northeast of the state, are considered an excellent recreation area. Its name comes from the snow-capped peaks and accordingly there are excellent ski areas in Attiash or in the Waterville Valley. In summer, the region is popular for its numerous extensive hiking trails. A highlight in the middle of the dense forests is the 240 meter high waterfall Flume Gorge. The mostly rocky coast of New Hampshire is also ideal for hiking. We recommend a visit to the small port city of Portsmouth, which is considered one of the most beautiful places in the USA. Stroll through the narrow streets and admire the many buildings from the 18th century. In the Strawbery Banke Museum, an entire colonial street area has been preserved in the original.
