Today's traveler to and in New Hampshire is concerned about getting added value for their money. According to recent research by the Travel Industry Association, 75% of travelers expect to book a packaged vacation to save money and six out of ten plan to comparison shop for prices and rates specifically on the internet. Visitors not only want to get more for their money, they want to be able to do more for their money.

Given the value-conscious nature of New Hampshire, with its tax-free shopping and wide variety of experiences, we thought it would be great to remind people of all the reasons New Hampshire helps stretch those dollars even further. All of these Yankee Dollar Stretchers have the same goal in mind- to save the traveler money and give added-value to their New Hampshire experience. Visitors can find discounts, special packages, 2-for1 deals, kids ski/stay/eat free offers and more.

You will also find that gasoline in New Hampshire is generally priced at or below the national average reported by AAA. You'll find fuel readily available here, or even better, visit one of the many highly-walkable towns where you can park your car and enjoy New Hampshire on foot.

On the Seacoast, Portsmouth was just named the state's most walkable city by Prevention Magazine. A 2008 National Trust for Historic Preservation "Distinctive Destination," it's the perfect place to wander historic streets, take a self-guided tour of the Black Heritage, Portsmouth Peace Treaty or Harbour Trails, browse in individualistic boutiques and soak up sunshine in a sidewalk cafe.

In the Great North Woods, Berlin was just named to Outdoor Life's best cities. Here, you'll be able to replace your car with a kayak, canoe or hiking boots to appreciate the pristine wilderness. For the many campers who enjoy the state's rivers, lakes and trails, the New Hampshire Campground Owners' Association lists sites where RV owners can park their trailers for a week, or a season, instead of towing them back and forth in between.

And now hunters can take advantage of special money-saving offers through the NH Department of Fish and Game's www.huntnh.com/save website.
