About NH Tour Guide.com!

 

NHTourGuide.com was originally created for our kids. After much struggling to get them to read, write and learn at home, we decided to come up with something a bit more clever. Yup, we needed to outsmart the kids! Being a website developer recovering from cancer, I had a lot of time on my hands so I decided to use my knowledge and my free time as a  "Fun" way to learn. I didn't ask them to help, I didn't make them do anything they didn't want to, never asked them to pick up a book, nothing...  I simply asked if they wanted to go have fun. They were in the truck before I even told them where we were going. Little did they know we were headed on a snowmobile trip to Pittsburg NH and renting a cabin on First Connecticut Lake for the weekend.

From there, every weekend, and school vacation we would go on a trip here in our own state of New Hampshire, take photos and write down details, much like a news reporter. After the first few trips, they finally asked me what we were doing. I told them I had a new website idea and I was doing a website about New Hampshire. Well, of coarse dad is stupid and embarrassing, looking like a tourist and all, so they separated themselves from me in public as much as possible. But we kept going with the idea hoping they would get used to it and stop acting like we were strangers in public. Every once in a while I would show them a place we had just gone on the website and they thought that was pretty cool that our adventures were online for the world to see.

 

Once the website was completely up and running, they could see just how many places we had been and was able to recall the memories of our NH trips. The kids began to pay a little more attention to places we were going, knowing that we would need to put accurate information on the website.

 

I knew I had them hooked when they began taking photos with their own cameras and cell phones and told me I should put them on the website...  Yup, I got 'em hooked like fish!

 

So now what?

Well, it's been a few years, the youngest is still in school, his grades have gone up. The oldest is now beginning college for aviation mechanics and both are still helping us with this website. They tell their friends about the website and how it has become a great place for information for students all over the world, as well as travelers and curious NH residents.

 

In the Spring of 2009, they convinced me to take them to Florida for Spring vacation, so we left New Hampshire to see what the rest of the Country was like. During our stay our hotel room was broken into and everything was stolen. Needless to say, we love New Hampshire just a little more now, and yes we wrote an article about being robbed while on vacation as this can happen to anyone.

 

NH Tour Guide.com receives many more visitors than we ever expected and it continues to grow. Because it has grown so much, we now devote a lot more of our time to the website and have added places for advertisers to support the project so we can continue to bring unique NH information to the public. Our site now also offers a NH business directory (as seen on the left), Live NH Webcams and other interesting links which can be seen on the left side of every page.

We have certainly been to a lot of really great places in New Hampshire and met some interesting people over the years and had some great experiences (a few bad ones too). But who is going to tell you about the good stuff, give you advice that you might not have considered and warn you about the not so good stuff? We are! We visit different areas of New Hampshire first hand and see what all the hype is about. We may find a restaurant, hotel, or a resort to stay at, then check out the fun and exciting spots nearby so we can tell you about those things too. And of coarse, we have a great time doing the "hard work" for you. Let our experiences give you the travel information you need to visit New Hampshire!

New Hampshire is a small state, but don't be fooled by it's size. There is a lot to see here. Some people choose to travel the world, or to see every state in the USA, but we have chosen a different route. We are going to see as much of New Hampshire as we can!

 

Join us as we discover (and rediscover) the great State of New Hampshire....
