New Hampshire residents are a hearty bunch, who like to be prepared for everything, including a zombie apocalypse. Sure, it may seem the stuff of fiction, but you can never be too safe. If the undead return, you’ll be glad you have this list. Here are the 8 best places to hide in New Hampshire in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
1. The Isle of Shoals
These rocky islands off the coast of New Hampshire have been used for hiding out for years. If it's good enough for Blackbeard the Pirate, it's good enough for us.
2. The Fort At Number Four
This fort in Charlestown was one of the original settlements in Northern New Hampshire, built to withstand attacks by Native Americans. The tall, pointed fence makes it secure, cleared land makes it easy to spot invaders, and easy access to the Connecticut River provides an ideal escape plan.
3. A freshwater island.
We bet that zombies aren't very good swimmers, and New Hampshire has hundreds of islands in its lakes that are perfect for hiding out. In the past, many larger islands were used for farming, so you know growing food won't be an issue.
4. White Mountain National Forest
New Hampshire's most popular tourist attraction is also the perfect place to hide from Zombies. The national forest has over 1,000 square miles of untouched wilderness. There are plenty of berries and animals to eat if you're quick enough, and the freshwater streams in the mountains will mean you never go thirsty.
5. Ruggles Mine
This abandoned mine in Grafton has heaps of unexplored tunnels. If you're brave enough, Ruggles Mine could be the perfect stop to seek refuge.
6. Fort Constitution
This Fort in New Castle doesn't look like much from the outside, but that is part of its appeal as a hiding spot. Plus, the many inlets and coves around Portsmouth Harbor mean that you have plenty of escape options.
7. Mount Washington Summit
Where better to be if you're under attack than on the roof of New England? You could see attackers coming, but the downside is that escaping could be tricky. Unpredictable weather and scarce supplies mean this location would require some planning, but done right it could be great.
8. Former Navy Prison
This massive building in Portsmouth was built to military standards, making it a perfect fortress in the event of an emergency. During its hay day, the prison was known as the Alcatraz of the east. Yes, we know that the prison on Portsmouth Harbor is officially in Kittery, Maine, but we promise that in the event of a zombie apocalypse you won't care.
