CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire tourism officials are anticipating that upward of 2.5 million travelers will spend just over $1 billion dollars in the state this winter.

The projections released Friday from the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development would be about a 3 percent increases in both visitation and spending compared to last winter.

Victoria Cimino, the division’s director, says the uptick in visitors is a reminder that the Granite State remains a popular destination for those seeking outdoor recreation such as skiing and snowboarding. Tourists also visit for the dining and tax-free shopping.

For the 2019 winter season, the division will continue focusing on markets in northeast Canada, New York and the New England region.
