A Guide to the Granite State

For such a little state, New Hampshire sure has its share of larger-than-life icons, from our first-in-the-nation primary to that dear Old Man (gone but not forgotten) to our much-ballyhooed yet beloved license state motto. 

Compass American Guides were meant to give thoughtful travelers quick access to the essential New Hampshire: fewer gimmicks and more character, authenticity, and even (gasp!) cultural details like historical insights, literary excerpts and favorite artists. 

In this study of my own adopted home, I strove to showcase experiences that might make traveling to our quirky little state a more-than-memorable adventure. 

Live Free or Die, baby.
