Take a NH Staycation

STAYCATION: : a vacation spent at home or nearby*

Residents and visitors always have the same response when asked why they love New Hampshire “The four seasons are spectacular, and within a short drive you can reach a major city, climb beautiful mountains, or enjoy the ocean.” Why not make the most out of your summer vacation by exploring the adventures available in our backyard and have a NH staycation?

While you’re out there, “put your love for New Hampshire’s environment on the map.” The Department of Environmental Services wants to know “what you love about our environment, why you care about it, or what you’re doing to keep it clean.” Use #ThisIsNH and submit your photos at to get your photo on the map!
