Destination: New Hampshire

What are the best places for the public to play golf in New Hampshire? Well, according to Golf Digest the Balsams Panorama golf course is the head of the class in New Hampshire, and it's open to the public. Other New Hampshire golf courses recognized on the list were Portsmouth Country Club, Bretwood North Golf Course and The Shattuck golf course in Jaffrey.

How is the climate in New Hampshire?

As with every New England state, the further away from the coast, the warmer it gets, which means once you get into the mountains of inner New Hampshire, temps are five to 10 degrees warmer. Summers in New Hampshire range from May to August, with highs rarely over 90. The golf season in New Hampshire ranges from early May to late September. After that, resorts and golf courses begin shutting down for the winter ski season.

How rugged is New Hampshire?

New Hampshire is known more for its ski resorts than golf, and Mount Washington, located in New Hampshire is the tallest point in New England. The average elevation is about 1,000 feet, or about 1/5 of a mile. Only 1.2 million people inhabit New Hampshire, but coastal towns such as Portsmouth are one of the most visited places in the state.

What's there to do in Hampton Beach?

Hampton Beach is one of New Hampshire's most popular summer playgrounds, located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Aside from the normal array of beach activities, Hampton Beach also has two courses in town, Sagamore Hampton Golf Course and Breakfast Hill, located just three miles from Portsmouth.

I heard there's no sales tax in New Hampshire. Is this true?

It's a tourist's dream, especially if you've been to New York City lately. "Live Free or Die" is the state motto, and they stick to it, so if something is $5.99, it's $5.99.
