Yankee travel Guide singles out N.H. restaurants, hotels

More than 40 N.H. locations are listed as winners of “Editor’s Choice” awards in the 2013 issue of Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England


More than 40 New Hampshire locations are listed as winners of “Editor’s Choice” awards in the 2013 issue of Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England.

The designation is awarded by Yankee’s editors and contributors, who name select restaurants, lodgings and attractions to the list. A total of 317 awards were given this year.

“Every one of the 300-plus places we highlight contains an untold back story about someone striving for perfection, having a dream, and having the vision to make a difference, whether it’s a small artisan’s studio or a lobster-in-the-rough shack or a dressed-up steakhouse on a tree-lined Boston street,” says Yankee’s editor Mel Allen. “While it may be hard to create a business, the true challenge is in making it work, being good enough that it endures and brings people back. Those are the qualities we look for and reward when we say ‘Best of New England.’”
