Located in the New England region of the Northeastern United States, New Hampshire has 10 counties and 234 cities and towns. Bordered by Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, Quebec and the Atlantic Ocean, New Hampshire was named after the Southern English county of Hampshire. New Hampshire is a “Dillon Rule” state, meaning that the state retains all powers not specifically granted to municipalities. Even so, the legislature strongly favors local control, particularly with regard to land use regulations.
