| 5 min read

Popular for its vast granite formations, New Hampshire is a state in the United States of America with plenty of lures for tourists. Buzzing cities in the region such as Concord and Manchester are perfect destinations to gain insights into the local history. Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, which was founded in 1929, houses old and modern art pieces, including paintings, sculptures, and furniture. If you’re looking to explore the state’s terrain while indulging in activities such as biking and hiking, then don’t skip visiting Franconia Notch State Park. The state park has scenic trails and waterfalls that are worth exploring. That’s not all, New Hampshire boasts a wealth of lakes — some of which are the cleanest in the US.
