One of the absolute shittiest areas of NH, no questions asked. Miles upon miles of tiny, go-nowhere towns in the middle of fucking nowhere, row upon row of trailer parks and absurdly run-down houses (most of them with rusted car parts and appliances dotting the yards), shitty general stores, pizza parlors, and ice cream stands dotting the land, gun shops in every town, and tourist trap gift shops littering the more populated areas. Meth and heroin are big in the area, alcoholism is rampant, and there have been a fair amount of confirmed incest cases in quite a few of the towns. Even the more populated areas are still pretty seedy, with Newport holding little more than a strip mall, a few convenience stores, and other assorted unsuccessful businesses. When the biggest draw of a town is a fucking Ocean State Job Lots outlet, you know there's a problem. Claremont is much the same, just larger, while Sunapee is populated by rich out-of-staters in the summer and is damn near a fucking ghost town in the winter. Really, this describes the entire fucking area in a nutshell. There are only three things worth giving a rat's ass about here: Lake Sunapee, which is okay, Mount Sunapee, which is overpriced as fuck and worthless if you don't like winter sports, and the assorted hiking trails, which are mosquito-ridden hellholes for much of the summer and snowed over in the winter, making them useless for snowshoeing. In short, fuck this place.
"Fuck, man, where are we going today?"
"Fuck that shit, it's like a larger Newport, AKA devoid of anything worth giving a pig fuck about."
"Man, fuck Sullivan County."
