    Tourism officials in New Hampshire are projecting a slight increase in the numbers of visitors and the amount spent this fall in the state.

    The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development on Monday projected that 3 million out-of-state visitors who spend the night will spend $1.4 billion in the state. That would mark a 4.5 percent increase for visitors and a 5 percent increase for spending.

    The fall season is considered the second most important travel season in New Hampshire, representing a quarter of all the visitations. Scenic drives and outdoor recreation are among the most popular activities for visitors.

    Early projections are that this fall season should be a good one, with a University of New Hampshire scientist suggesting there will be vibrant fall colors.
