All-time highs for fall visitors expected in New Hampshire
By: Associated Press

State tourism officials are forecasting all-time highs for visitors and spending this fall season, with a good chunk of the travel occurring over Columbus Day weekend.

The state Division of Travel and Tourism is expecting 9.8 million visitors to spend $1.5 billion throughout the fall. The figures represent increases of 4 percent in visitors and 5 percent in money spent over last fall.

Travel researchers said Thursday about 710,000 visitors are projected to spend more than $100 million over Columbus Day weekend, a 5 percent increase over a year ago for both categories. The division said scenic drives and outdoor recreation will remain the most popular activities, followed by visiting farm stands, orchards, festivals and family.
