I have an unhealthy obsession with New England travel, specifically New Hampshire.

What are some good things to do there, and more importantly, how much different is living there than visiting?

born and raised in boston and traveled all over new england, though I no longer live there. where you coming from OP? if you come from another part of america then I'd guess the biggest change would be the slightly smaller distances to get from place to place. new england, and the eastern seaboard as a whole, is pretty densely populated and urban sprawl is a major problem. nonetheless, the nature is top-notch and new england state governments are more proactive than others in protecting the environment.

the first thing any new englander would say to the biggest difference between living and visiting there would be taxes. it's one of, if not, the most expensive region to live in. salaries are higher there as a result.

I've been in Boston since May. It's what made me realize I love the region. I'm from Georgia though. Rather than move back, I'd like to move around the region a while longer but don't know if it's just a honeymoon phase or not.

I'm currently living in NH. It's a pretty nice state. Even though it is pretty small it has some distinct variations between regions. Southern NH will be much more densely populated with more indoor things to do. The further North you go, to the Lakes region or North Country it becomes much more out door oriented. The major attractions being boating on the lakes in summer and skiing in the North Country from Nov-Mar.

The major difference between living and being a tourist is that unlike other regions in America people are slow to make friends with outsiders, I guess people are worried the culture will wither away like, for example Texas, by the invasion of outsiders.

Also young people tend to be liberal (or at least libertarian) but are secretly very racist.

The difference between a tourist and living here?
How you drive.
That said, NH is pretty dope and has something for everyone.

not really...our culture in the northeast has constantly been shaped and reshaped by outsiders. (except maybe NH, which is one of the whitest states in the union)

We're more independent and less friendly to everyone, outsiders and locals alike. We mostly just keep to ourselves and expect to be ignored. Outsiders can find this distance off-putting.
