Letter: Disney’s New Hampshire
Re “Dreaming up an area to rest” (Monitor Business page, July 1):
An ungainly pastiche of historical references attached to a supersized liquor store is the best way to present our state to visitors?
Reinforcing the rural image of New Hampshire with this unimaginative and dated approach is a very large missed opportunity. You would expect something like this in a Disney New Hampshire Experience ride, not in reality.
Take a drive through Vermont and observe the handsome rest areas in that state. They are clearly influenced by the state’s agrarian history but do not stop with simply recreating a barn. This does little to help our state project an up to date image that respects the past while embracing the future, and it’s too bad.
