New Hampshire is perhaps the most conservative of all the states in the New England region, enjoying a unique position as the first primary in the US presidential cycle. A strong libertarian streak runs through the state, emphasised by the state motto you’ll see on car number plates – ‘Live Free or Die’.
New England also has a strong creative streak, with artists, poets and writers inspired by its jagged mountain ranges, forest-lined lakes and natural beauty. However, it also has picture perfect villages such as Keene and Peterborough, which make great day trips for international students – close your eyes and you could imagine still being in the English countryside.
