This state is one of the earliest states settled by British colonials in the United States and one of the original thirteen colonies that founded the United States of America. Perhaps this colonial revolutionist attitude is the reason for the state's motto, "Live Free or Die." Nicknamed "The Granite State," New Hampshire is filled with granite formations and quarries.

Concord is the state capital of New Hampshire and Manchester is its biggest city. Portsmouth is also a popular tourist destination, as it is the original city settled by British colonialists and thus one of the oldest cities in the States.
