Tourism officials expect 6.5 million visitors to New Hampshire this winter, a 2 percent increase over last year.

The state Division of Travel and Tourism Development says spending by tourists and business travelers in the next few months is expected to total $830 million, on par with last year.

Officials expect an increase in the number of day trips, with most of the winter visitors coming from other New England states.
