CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — An organization that studies New Hampshire tourism says an estimated 880,000 out-of-state visitors are expected for the July 4th holiday weekend and they are expected to spend about $131 million.

The forecasts from the Institute for New Hampshire Studies are higher than last year's predictions. The period covers July 3-July 7.

Most of the visitors will be from New England and the Middle Atlantic States. Canadians are anticipated to be visiting New Hampshire at higher levels than last year.
