The Washington Post, in an article written by Christopher Ingraham, entitled "America's highest earning state probably is not the one you expect" written on September 13, 2017, said this:
“Pop quiz: Which U.S. state had the highest median income in 2016?
New York or California, perhaps, home to some of the nation's wealthiest cities? Maryland or Virginia, with their Washington suburbs flush with government cash? Alaska, home of the famous oil revenue checks for every man, woman and child?
All of those guesses are wrong, according to the latest 2016 income data released by the U.S. Census. The correct answer, believe it or not: New Hampshire
The Granite State's median household income last year was a whopping $76,260, nearly 30 percent higher than the national median of $59,039, according to the Census.
The typical New Hampshire household earned $35,000 a year more than the typical household in the country's poorest state, Mississippi, where the median income is $41,099. Put another way, the median income in Mississippi today is about as low as the median income in New Hampshire 20 years ago, in 1997 ($40,998). One of the chief drivers of New Hampshire's high median income is its poverty rate, which is the lowest in the nation. Only 6.9 percent of the state's residents live below the poverty line, compared with a national average of 13.7 percent (in Mississippi nearly 21 percent of people live in poverty).
New Hampshire's workforce is also among the best-educated in the country, according to previously released census data. Better-educated workers tend to make more money…
…In the census data, New Hampshire's strong showing is consistent from year to year — it hasn't fallen out of the top five median household income states in the past decade.”

Manchester, New Hampshire has become a regional destination for southern New Hampshire residents rivaling Boston for sports and entertainment. The Verizon Center is a major venue attracting large concerts and other events as well as being the facility where many local indoor sports teams play.
