LIFE ON LAKE WINNI
ALL SEASON FUN
Live, Love, Lake!
Come and enjoy all the outdoor activities Lake Winnipesaukee has to offer. There is something for everyone to do around the Lake. Take a hike or bike ride on one of the many trails around the region. See all the sites around the lake by boat, kayak, canoe or jet ski.
Spend a day of family fun at Weirs Beach, which is located just 3.5 miles down the road. The boardwalk runs the full length of the beach with gorgeous views of the lake and mountains. There is no shortage of activities at Weirs Beach including penny arcades, eateries, shopping and there is plenty of parking. Take a one or two-hour excursion along the western shore of Lake Winnipesauke aboard the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad in their restored vintage coaches.
Take a beautiful cruise around Lake Winnipesaukee on the M/S Mount Washington, which offers afternoon sightseeing cruises or dinner/dance cruises. For the concertgoers, there are concerts just about every weekend at the Bank of NH Pavilion, a 9,000 seat amphitheater just minutes away!
Autumn is in the Air
You will not want to miss the spectacular scenery in the Lakes Region during fall foliage! There is a 115-mile scenic drive loop that leads you through the foliage. The Zip Line at Gunstock Mountain Resort is a fabulous way to experience the foliage. Take a drive up to Castle in the Clouds and stop at the waterfall and scenic overlooks to take in the amazing autumn colors! If you prefer seeing the colors from the water, take a tour on the M/S Mount Washington or the Winnipesaukee Belle.
The Pumpkin Festival in Laconia is a must-see! Laconia’s Pumpkin Festival is a Guinness World record holder for “most Jack-o-lanterns in One Place at One Time.” Bring along your carved pumpkin to take part in achieving another world record! There is music, kiddie rides, food, bungee jump, games, horse-drawn hayrides, great food and a riverside duck derby! There are over 60 food and craft vendors, live bands, and pumpkin bowling. You will not want to miss the 34’ Tower of Jack-o-Lanterns! Admission is free!
