New Hampshire is one of the United States' smallest components, forming part of the New England region in the northeast of the country. Although best known internationally as the state where the starting pistols are fired in US presidential candidates' bids, New Hampshire possesses some of the north-east's best scenery, changing with the seasons to provide stunning views no matter what the time of year. Hire a car in New Hampshire to treat yourself to fine food, wonderful scenic drives and some of the best skiing facilities this side of the Rocky Mountains; the Granite State attracts many winter sports enthusiasts to sample its many slopes.
The Appalachian Trail which runs from the north to the south of the States passes through the White Mountain National Forest; many visitors come here to hunt local game, and to take a break from city life in nearby Boston and New York. Hiring a car from New Hampshire allows you both the quiet time up in the National Park and the chance to savour some big-city travel in New England's neighbouring states. Although state capital Concord has many fine historical landmarks - including a former hotel which had accommodated several US Presidents, it's nearby Manchester that offers a traveller more of a cultural experience; it being the only city in NH to host professional sports teams.
For the best sights of majestic mountains and snowy peaks, the White Mountain Trail offers many miles of amazing scenery - just be sure your car is adequately prepared for the harsher elements of the colder months. New Hampshire is well-known for its moose population; it's important that drivers pay very close attention to the road in case they should happen across one of these massive animals in front of them. They are attracted to the roads by the salt which is put down to make the roads safer in wintry conditions, so keep your maximum speed down to 55mph to increase your reaction time should you spot one in your way.
