Travel Announcement – A Spring Time Road Trip

Exciting announcement time!

It all came around very quickly.
At home in Toronto I don’t have a car. I get around the city by bicycle, foot and public transit. So when the opportunity to have a set of wheels for a few days I couldn’t not make the most of it.

After a few quick emails and map research I devised a 4-6 day road trip that I am excited to announce!

Objective: Explore a place within 12 hours drive from my home.

Destination: New Hampshire, USA

Co-Pilot: My Mother

So, as the journey begins, stay tuned to my Facebook and Twitter profiles as well as here on the blog.

Thank you to the state of New Hampshire for hosting me. Check out the New Hampshire Tourism site and take a look at what this great state has on offer!

Also, if you are from New Hampshire or have been and have any reccomendations please share them in the comment below or over on Facebook or Twitter.

Enjoy the adventure!

    Howdy! I’m from the granite state and you’re simply going to love it! Ready for some top picks?

    - Portsmouth (located on the seacoast with a young and relaxed vibe. Check out the area’s breweries and restaurants and if open, take a harbor cruise)
    - North Conway (Located in the White Mountains on the east side by Maine. Tons of outdoor activities and owner run eateries. Hike, look for moose, drive up Mount Washington.)
    - Tax free shopping and city vibe check out Manchester or Nashua
    - Lake living. Visit the cute towns around Lake Winnipesaukee or the many NH inns
    - Franconia Notch (More hiking and scenic drives with a few waterfalls and notches thrown in)

    Hope this helps and enjoy!

    There is no sales tax in NH on anything! If you are into musical instruments there is a cool Mom and Pop music store in Manchester, called Manchester Music Mill. Tons of cool stuff and cool people.

    NH is one of my favorite states. The whole North Conway area is beautiful with a lot to do and see you can shop and enjoy nature the best of both worlds!

    Nice, I don’t think I know a single thing about NH despite being so close to it. Please find some gigantic monument, it’s my favourite part of Americana to find like the world’s largest apple or something like that.
