New Hampshire Guide


New Hampshire was the first of the 13 colonies to assert its independence in 1776 and became the first American state to adopt its own constitution. Today, New Hampshire’s independent residents continue to live up to the ‘live free or die’ state motto. New Hampshire’s most famous attractions are its stunning White Mountain ski resorts and its sales tax free shopping. The coastal community of Portsmouth, established in 1623, is the third oldest United States city.

Hiring a Vehicle

Budget, Dollar, and Avis are among the eight well-known companies with offices at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. However, plenty of other options are available across Manchester, Concord, Portsmouth, and most other New Hampshire communities, but visitors should compare car hire deals before commencing their trip to ensure the best price.

Transport Options

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, New Hampshire’s busiest, serves the state’s biggest city, Manchester, near the Massachusetts border. Manchester’s airport has also attracted many Bostonians for its wide variety of cheap flights to cities across the eastern United States. Amtrak’s Downeaster and Vermonter rail lines pass through New Hampshire, and the state’s bus networks are fairly well linked, but car hire in New Hampshire is still recommended to navigate most of the state.

Car Hire Driving Tips in New Hampshire

New Hampshire’s state route signs are the only places where visitors can still see its Old Man of the Mountain landmark. Route 1 and the I-95 both pass through New Hampshire’s 18 miles of coastline on their way between Maine and Florida. Interstate 93 links southern New Hampshire with the White Mountains along its path between the Massachusetts and Vermont borders. Interstate 89 links the cities of Lebanon and Concord. New Hampshire’s state, national, and interstate highways are all well signed and maintained.

Not to be Missed!

Visitors can drive their car rental in New Hampshire all the way to Mount Washington’s summit along the Mount Washington Auto Road. The road and mountain, the highest in the eastern United States, are both part of the White Mountain National Forest. New Hampshire’s seashore may be smaller than any other coastal American state, but nonetheless attracts numerous tourists to historic Portsmouth, Hampton Beach, and the nine tiny Isles of Shoals.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

The rural mountains of northern New Hampshire experience even colder and snowier winters than the rest of the state, whose average January temperatures range from as cold as -18°C in high mountain locations to barely above freezing on the coast. Summers are humid with average temperatures ranging from 24°C to 28°C. The Atlantic Ocean keeps coastal temperatures wetter and milder than those of inland locations.
