Both are bordering states in these United States in a region known as New England, the area of the country first settled by European colonists when they came over and, you know, kicked Native American nations off their lands throughout the 1600s. The Connecticut River separates them, and each joke the other state is the upside-down version of itself.
So although Vermont and New Hampshire are right next to each other, and although they are about the same size, and although even the shape of each state is similar to a point where people often mix them up, there are a lot of differences between the two.
Before we get to the differences, let’s keep going with what they have in common. Both have a lot of natural beauty, filled with rolling hills, mountains, streams, lakes, and forests. Both have plenty of protected land. Vermont has the Green Mountain National Forest and New Hampshire has the White Mountain National Forest. The Green Mountains in Vermont and White Mountains in New Hampshire are both part of the northern Appalachian Mountains, a range that goes up and down the eastern portion of the country. New Hampshire has the taller highest peak of the two states, with Mount Washington, one of the windiest places on earth. On April 12, 1934, scientists recorded a wind speed of 231 miles per hour on the top of the mountain, which is still the world record for wind speed if you don’t count cyclones or tornadoes.
Vermont does have a more rugged terrain, overall, and in fact New Hampshire’s land gets all chill and flat in the southeast portion of the state. It even borders the Atlantic Ocean. For 18 miles (29km). The shortest ocean coastline of any state, but at least it’s not landlocked like Vermont!
Tons of Americans who live in the NORTHEAST MEGALOPOLIS go to both Vermont and New Hampshire for tourism, especially for outdoorsy stuff like fishing, hunting, and hiking. Winter sports like skiiing and snowmobiling are also big in the winter in both states. Oh, and don’t forget the fall foliage! Oh my, it’s so pretty.
Both states have a lot of people with lighter skin. The vast majority of people in both states trace most of their ancestry back to Europe. The earliest European settlers were mostly Puritans and other groups from Britain, but before the English arrived French explorers checked out both states. These European settlers encountered various Native American nations already living there for hundreds of years. Most of them were Algonquian-speaking Abenaki tribes, although in Vermont the Pennacook and Mohican tribes also resided.
+Pywaket Pilot . Hey, as a native of New Hampshire for 40 years.. I find your rants quite funny!! It's sounds like the Barnstead, New Hampshire town community page! Where you'll find the natives arguing with all of the "massholes" that have decided to relocate to NH for the beautiful country living!! You come to vacation here first, then you decide it's so beautiful you people want to live here!! To get away from the city and the things that you describe above.. but yet the "massholes" complain about EVERYTHING! Don't move next to a 200 year old farm if you don't want to smell a manure pile! You say you despise having to put up with us NH driver's coming south for work? But from May until September, NH is FILLED with rich, city dwelling Massachusetts people vacationing in their "summer cottages" and boating on Lake Winnipesaukee! We have to put up with your driving, which is extremely well known in New England!Thank you so much for spending your money in our beautiful state but we can't wait for you to go home at the end of the season! We have beautiful lakes, beaches, and beautiful mountains! Too bad most of NH people go to the beaches in Maine, because our limited coast line is inundated with Massachusetts people! Western Massachusetts, and the Cape is pretty! Vermont is beautiful state! Maine is beautiful state!! Massachusetts is all city pretty much..but the funny thing is? When I lived in down south for 2 yrs? Whenever, I met somebody from Mass, it was like meeting your long-lost cousin. I guess it was our accents that gave it away! We all live in New England! So let's just all be friends!!
You forgot Vermont's PHISH & Maple Syrup!
I have always FELT the difference in VT. Honestly, I can feel it just by crossing the border into VT. It feels like crossing into Canada.
btw, NH folk from the Connecticut River area are a unique breed, indeed.
Both have epic swimming holes!
White Mountains National Forest is my favorite place on Earth. I love it WAY MORE than Big Sur or Yosemite. way more!
Vermonters, to me, are like redneck hippies. I picture a naked farmer, driving a John Deer Tractor, smoking a joint and wearing a grateful dead hat.
I've only been to New Hampshire, went to Waterville Valley. Thought it was fantastic, I was only about 10 years old at the time but I remember saying to my parents that I wanted to live there when I was older haha
If you evicted the scourge of Flatlander transplants that started infesting Vermont since the 1980s, it would be solidly conservative again. F'n libtards from Massholechusetts, NY, CT, and NJ are ruining VT.
Wait so. Will I get taxed if I'm out of state? Can I call that out? I get state pride but me and my dad aren't very rich. He's a pilot, I hardly get any time with him and now that I do we are going to New Hampshire! Idk why but I think it'd be cool to surprise him with some facts about saving money! (I came here to learn tbh, great vid!)
Vermont leans much further to the left and has higher taxes and minimum wage, yet along with a much higher poverty rate. New Hampshire has the lowest possible minimum wage, no sales tax, no income tax, yet has the lowest poverty rate. Every Democrat wanting higher taxes and minimum wage should watch this video.
1. You will spot more grazing cows in Vermont than in New Hampshire.
2. There are more holdovers of the hippie community in VT.
3. It is a fact Vermonters are more affluent than NY upstaters
4. NH has a fewer more of the older mill towns than VT.
5. Cities along the border will look much alike. Keene , NH and White River Junction, VT
6. NH has a small stretch of a coast line. VT is landlocked.
7. VT has a larger lake , Lake Champlain.
8. Vermonters have money. They just don’t flaunt it.
9. You can buy liquor on weekends in NH and it is sanctioned and sold through the State.
10. There are more toll plazas in NH. After all there is virtually no Sales Taxes in NH. Money gotta come from somewhere.
11. There are more quarries in NH, so beware where you take your swim.
When comparing Vermont to New Dumpster, mention must be made that Vermont women are infinitely preferable. Here's a joke from my youth; "How can you tell a New Dumpster girl from a scarecrow? One scares away birds and small animals, and the other is made of straw and old clothes." :)
I live in Ma. and I love both NH and Vt. The White Mt of NH are beautiful and have great hiking and backpacking. I do most of my skiing in Vt. and I spend almost every weekend at Killington. Hampton Beach in NH is also a lot of fun. I worked in field service for many years and V.t was part of my service area and they would call me a flatlander, but they were always very nice to me. NH leans more to the right and VT. to the left. Either way you can not go wrong as they are both great states.
Southern nh looks just like Massachusetts. I live near the border and go to MA all the time for shopping and stuff. And yeah we do have very high property taxes, up there with NY and NJ.
Also don’t tell anyone but most of NH is basically MA...shhhhhh
you Vermonteers and New Hampshireites please keep your travels to Fla to a minimum we all for tourism but you all make the traffic so horrible when you snowbirds come south. I ony single you out because those are all the main out of state license plates you see on Floridas highways either from Vermont, New Hampshire or Connecticut.
I HAVE lived here for 15 years it sucks you buy property and the state dictates what you can do go ACT 250!! Tree huggers! they dont what change!
High TAX is the normal EXTREMELY high water sewer bills where i live! OH and by the way by the way you can't drink the water! just as good as Flint Mi!
A few of my Puritan ancestors thought the settlements in Massachusetts were getting too crowded in the mid-1660s, so they moved to Vermont. Much of Vermont is still wild and "rustic". I can't imagine what my ancestors found when they reached Vermont. They didn't stay long.
i wish this idiot narrator lived in the day of the Indians. Every other week, they were savagely attacking and murdering each other's tribe. Watch Apocalypto by Mel Gibson to get a feel for what it was like, as in the very first scene.
Because of the state run liquor stores and low prices NH runs #1 in liquor consumption (sales) per capita. Tourists that vacation here from out of state fill their trunks before heading home, much of for friends back home. Manchester Airport has a NH Liquor Store after you pass through security.
Burlington, VT only 42000 in pop. Madison, AL around 49000 in pop. Although I understand its not as populated as other states, Madison isn't even the Largest city in Alabama. Birmingham is with a population around 210, 710 as a 2017 census
What makes New Hampshire and Vermont so lovely is the total lack of diversity. Look at how nice the towns are. You can go pretty much anywhere in even the largest cities of New Hampshire and Vermont. There are no ghettos full of minorities that you have to worry about getting shot, stabbed, or raped in. Everything just works. A throwback to 1965 america.
Vermont is great.. If you're a tourist, be friendly! The best trip you can get is if people like you. And people invite you on their regular day. February, ice fishing. March , sugaring. The only other good month is October, leafs. just don't be a leaf peeper and park in the middle of a road. Be careful of roads! Just because it's a weird road doesn't mean nobody uses it! Be safe.
I grew up on the NH side of the Connecticut River, in Hanover. Our school district was the first multi-state school district in the country and is still one of the very few around. So I grew up with kids from both states, and spent a lot of time in both of them. Although I am very proud of being from NH, I absolutely love Vermont too. I think most people in both states feel the same way, especially those of us who are from the Connecticut River valley. The communities on both sides of the river are very intertwined.
The eastern Massers are the flatlanders, here in western Mass we've got mountains too. In fact that picture he uses of the Connecticut River was taken in western Mass, it was taken from Mount Sugarloaf facing the Holyoke range.
I was actually born in Vermont and lived there for a while and I’d say it depends on who you are. But obviously I’d prefer Vermont. Another thing is Vermont really isn’t as liberal as he made it sound, there are definitely plenty of Republican Party members there as well. And yeah Ben and Jerry’s.
Yes, the Indians were there for "hundreds" of years before whites came along -- in other words they were RECENT IMMIGRANTS too, compared to what people think. They were certainly not "native Americans", one of many "politically-correct" buzzterms custom-designed to get rid of whitey.
One thing you didn't mention is that people in both states make maple syrup and maple sugar.
Also the property tax rate in NH is set and collected by the town. There is no state funding for schools (that I know about). Each town has to fund it's own schools which means richer towns have much better schools.
Us locals don't notice the fall foliage much because we see it every year! It's the Leaf Peepers who travel here as tourists who get excited about the leaves!
One more thing - there are many ski areas in each state which is awesome and also great for the economy - if we get snow. And sometimes we get waaaay to much snow!
My boyfriends from NH and I travel there often I can say NH is way better, best part is the regular speed limit everyone drives is like 80 so you don’t even gotta drive slow you can just go and the staties don’t give you any trouble.
Plus fishing there is nice! Good food too
You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
