While visitors may not be able to physically experience New Hampshire right now, they can virtually dive into some Granite State offerings. The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development (DTTD) has refreshed www.visitnh.gov to feature and online theater and ballet performances, scenic nature video tours and live stream opportunities, audio and video museum tours, and online learning resources for kids. VisitNH.gov also highlights takeout and delivery options in support of the state’s restaurant industry.
“We are always working to reinforce New Hampshire’s status as the premier destination in the northeast but we are adapting to the current temporary travel situation until we are able to welcome people back to our state,” said NH Travel and Tourism Director Lori Harnois. “These virtual experiences offer visitors and residents alike the opportunity to experience the state from the comfort and safety of their own homes.”
Attractions and destinations throughout NH are getting creative to reach their audiences. The Currier Museum of Art offers an audio/video tour, the M/S Mount Washington showcases a virtual exhibition, and there's a live view from the summit at Gunstock Mountain Resort overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee. Other offerings include a virtual yoga class at Evolve Mindful Movement and online learning opportunities at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire.
DTTD is also showcasing trip-planning resources to help visitors design future visits to the state. DTTD’s blog, Live Free With Kris, includes videos from destinations and attractions statewide and virtual content is updated daily.
