The coastal community of Portsmouth, established in 1623, is the third oldest United States city.
Budget, Dollar, and Avis are among the eight well-known companies with offices at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

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.
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.
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.
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.
