17 million visitors expected to visit the Granite State this summer
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire tourism officials are anticipating 17 million visitors and $2.25 billion in visitor spending this summer, up 4 percent in both categories over last year.
More than 1 million visitors are expected to generate more than $150 million in spending from June 30 to July 4.
Tourism officials are anticipating increased overnight visits, extended weekend and day trips compared to last summer. Their research cited a number of economic indicators suggesting a successful summer tourism season, including a 10-year low in the unemployment rate and growth in U.S. travel volume.
