What are some weird traditions in New Hampshire?

We’re a weird bunch here in the Granite State, and these eight traditions prove it. Do we sometimes wear our pajamas inside out to encourage a big, old snow day? We do! Do we do a major snow dance on the first snow of the year, acting as though it’s an all-out blizzard? Guilty. Do we choose Dunkin’ over the ‘Bucks every single time? Proudly! These are the unique traditions that make us who we are, and we are a weird and wonderful bunch.

What are some weird places I can visit in New Hampshire?

We’re typically always on the lookout for the beauty and fun that can be had in New Hampshire — and there’s certainly a lot of that here! But every so often we’re hungry for something slightly different. By this, we mean the unique, off-the-beaten-path spots that surprise us. These are the things that make us look twice and today we’re giving you a few of our favorites. These are the weird spots, and New Hampshire is full of ’em! From the New Hampshire Telephone Museum in  Warner to Madame Sherri’s Castle in West Chesterfield, enjoy a weird adventure through New Hampshire at these eight quirky spots!

What are some weird foods New Hampshire is known for?

Whether on a cold winter day or at a warm summer barbecue, New Hampshire residents love to refuel with old-school New England treats. To some, these items might be considered weird; to us, they are downright delicious! From sweets, to beverages (alcoholic and non) to main courses, here are 11 weird and iconic New Hampshire foods. Many of these items are seafood related, because, you know, we’re on the coast! Lobster rolls are iconic (and sorry, Maine, but NH is where it’s at!), as are fried lake bass and steamers. With regard to the latter, we recognize that steamed clams might look a bit weird, but anyone who is brave enough to try them knows that they taste oh-so-good, especially dipped in melted butter! The weirdest food in New Hampshire might be our riff on the classic sundae: the maple sundae! On a hot day in the Granite State, there’s nothing better.
