New Hampshire has neither a state income tax nor a sales tax on general merchandise.

I was born in Concord, NH and lived in the Concord area for 37 years. An hour from the mountains, an hour from the seacoast, half an hour to the lakes region, an hour and a half to Boston for the arts. NH has everything including the most glorious fall foliage on the planet. As soon as our work-related nomadic life is over, my husband and I are heading back home. (tranplanted for the present in St. Louis, MO)

Is there a greater political contrast in this country than that between the People's Republic of Vermont and Live Free or Die New Hampshire? Only theory I've heard is that Vermont is populated by ex-hippies from Greenwich Village who went back to the land - that is essentially true of Bernie Sanders and Ben and Jerry. New Hampshire is populated by refugees from Taxachusetts. I suppose all that is true, but I think Vermont's liberalism and New Hampshire's conservatism go way back to before people moved up from Boston and New York. Anyway, Vermont is lovely, has great skiing, and Burlington is the perfect small city with views that rival those of San Francisco.

Whoops! Maybe that last post should have gone to Vermont. Then again, it says what New Hampshire does not have. But New Hampshire does have the White Mountains and Mount Monadnock which vies with Fujiyama for the title of most climbed mountain in the world.
