New HampshireBounded by Maine to the east, Vermont to the west, Massachusetts to the south, and Canada to the north, the "Granite State" was one of the original Thirteen Colonies whose fervent "Live Free or Die" motto set the tone for the War for Independence in 1776.

Today, New Hampshire continues to make history every four years as the site of the first U.S. presidential primary and is well-known for its independent political tradition honoring individual freedoms and an inbred aversion to governmental interference.

New Hampshire is the only state to have neither a general sales tax or personal income tax, although the state makes up for it by levying some of the highest property taxes in the nation.

Its economy relies heavily on light industry, farming, as well as tourism with millions of visitors a year flocking to the state's breathtaking fall foliage, scenic summer cottages and world class New Hampshire ski resorts.
