CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s travel and tourism division expects more visitors to spend more money during the Columbus Day holiday weekend.

The Institute for New Hampshire Studies, which provides forecasts for the department, says nearly 645,000 people are expected to visit the state this weekend, with spending reaching $95 million. The visitor count would be a 3 percent increase over last year, while the spending number represents a 4 percent jump.

Most of the out-of-state visitors come from other New England states and New York, though the region’s fall foliage also attracts visitors from Canada and Europe.
