New Hampshire’s Only National Park Property Is A Treasure Everyone Needs To Explore At Least Once
When you think of National Parks in America, you might imagine huge mountains with peaks to summit. While that’s true for some states, you might be surprised to know that New Hampshire actually has its own National Park property. It’s a bit different than a traditional National Park in that it’s referred to as a “National Historic Site.” These sites are used to refer an “officially recognized area of national historic significance in the United States.” The one in New Hampshire is beautiful and worth a visit.
