New Hampshire tourism officials are projecting an increase in visitation and spending this Labor Day Weekend.
The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development expects 660,000 visitors will spend an estimated $95 million over the three-day weekend, representing a 3.5 percent increase in visitors and a 5 percent increase in spending over last year.
The Labor Day Weekend is typically the state’s second busiest travel weekend.
“New Hampshire has experienced a positive summer travel period and that momentum will carry through the long holiday weekend,” said Victoria Cimino, director of the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development. “Strong consumer confidence, reasonable gas prices, and a sunny weather forecast, are significant factors in this year’s Labor Day Weekend forecast.”
Labor Day weekend draws visitors to the Granite State for outdoor recreation and attractions, shopping, events, and visiting friends and family.
