New Hampshire Way is your ultimate guide to New Hampshire travel. Whether you’re visiting for the first time or a seasoned New Hampshire visitor, this site is going to give you ideas for your next trip!
We love the Granite State, and we want to share it with you.
Our team of New Hampshire experts — from New Hampshire natives and current residents to frequent visitors and niche experts — is here to make sure you have the best New Hampshire trip ever.
Our Core Values
We believe in sustainability and preservation. Our beautiful state is only as good as we keep it, and we each have a duty to do our part — and hold the government accountable to do the same.
We believe in honoring the Indigenous peoples of New Hampshire and their unceded land. New Hampshire’s history begins with its first inhabitants, not its first European settlers, and we must always provide a place to keep their culture alive.
We believe in supporting small local businesses whenever possible. New Hampshire’s small businesses give the state its quirky feel, and it would be so different if they weren’t here.
We believe New Hampshire is worth far more than a brief stop on a trip around New England. We’re not the layover between Vermont and Massachusetts — we are the main meal, not a side dish!
We believe New Hampshire is for everyone. It may be a small, mostly rural, ethnically homogenous state, but we believe New Hampshire is for people of all ages, races, all ethnic backgrounds, all sexualities, all gender identities, all religions, and all ability levels.
KATE McCULLEY, EDITOR AND PUBLISHER — Kate took her first New Hampshire trip at 10 days old. Since then, she’s spent nearly every summer in New Hampshire and has criss-crossed the state dozens of times, from moose-spotting in the Great North Woods to brewery-hopping along the Seacoast.
An award-winning travel writer who has lived around the world, Kate started New Hampshire Way to turn her New Hampshire knowledge into an easy-to-navigate resource for travelers in the Granite State. She is equally at home hiking in Franconia Notch, swimming in White Lake, or browsing bookstores in Portsmouth.
JEFF DECK, CONTRIBUTING WRITER — A Manchester native and published author, Jeff has lived in the Seacoast area for over a decade. As a writing coach and ghostwriter, he helps other writers tell their stories. He likes to explore Portsmouth’s food and drink scene with friends and his wife Jane, and the many coastal trails and beaches with his dog Burleigh. You can find him writing at Cup of Joe or Liars Bench. His website is jeffdeck.com.
BEKAH DIAMOND, CONTRIBUTING WRITER — A UK native and New Hampshire Way’s hiking writer, Bekah fell in love with the White Mountains in 2005 and has returned to New Hampshire at every possible opportunity since! She has spent three summers leading hiking trips in the White Mountains, and in 2019 completed the hut-to-hut hike along all eight AMC huts on the Appalachian Trail. Bekah has hiked across the world — but her heart belongs to the wild beauty of White Mountains. Her favorite post-hiking treat is an ice cream at Lickety Splitz or coffee at the Met in North Conway.
KATIE PIERCE, CONTRIBUTING WRITER — A southern New Hampshire native and New Hampshire Way’s outdoor adventure writer, Katie is a lifelong outdoors enthusiast. She began skiing at the age of two, summiting peaks at the age of five, and today she’s game to try anything that involves being outside. You can find her often in the White Mountains backpacking or skiing, at Bear Brook on her mountain bike, or exploring New Hampshire’s rock climbing spots.
