Summer in NH

A summer of adventure awaits you.

Summer is a time for the Live Free state to really shine. Our beaches, lakes, and rivers are a perfect way to cool down. Try renting a surfboard, kayak or canoe, or find cruises if you’d like to enjoy the water without getting your toes wet. When you’re ready for a bite, New Hampshire is home to amazing cuisine in all seven regions, ranging from waterfront dining to mountain views. Don’t forget to check out our calendar of events during our summer months when festivals, concerts, and fairs take place each and every weekend.
