More than 1 million out-of-state visitors are expected to spend in excess of $155 million over the Fourth of July holiday, according to the Division of Travel and Tourism Development.
Spanning nine days between June 29 and July 8, the holiday period officially kicks off New Hampshire’s busiest travel season. Overall, DTTD expects a record-breaking 2018 summer travel season drawing more than 3.4 million visitors who will spend $1.8 billion.
“The Fourth of July is a critical time for businesses and attractions throughout New Hampshire that draw visitors to experience outdoor adventures such as kayaking, biking, ATVing, and camping that are so popular during the summer months, as well as the state’s tax-free shopping,” said DTTD Director Victoria Cimino. “We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors from throughout the Northeast and beyond.”
The majority of people visiting the state during this holiday period will travel from New England and the Middle Atlantic states. Outdoor recreation, patriotic events and visiting friends and relatives are popular activities during the Fourth of July period.
