Introducing Upper Connecticut River Valley
The Connecticut River, New England's longest, is the boundary between New Hampshire and Vermont. The Upper Connecticut River Valley extends from Brattleboro, Vermont, in the south to Woodsville, New Hampshire, in the north, and includes towns on both banks. The river has long been an important byway for explorers and traders. Today it is an adventure destination for boaters and bird-watchers, canoeists and kayakers. The region's largest population center is Lebanon, while the cultural focal point is prestigious Dartmouth College in Hanover.
