Some of the more recent additions include multiple zip line and high ropes operations in Laconia and Gilford, and even off-road segway tours at Gunstock.  Perennial favorites include cruising Lake Winnipesaukee, taking in the views while touring the Castle in the Clouds estate, and having fun at the largest arcade in the world, Funspot!   

Check out these suggestions of area attractions and things to do that children may enjoy.  We'll cover boat rides on the lake, the worlds largest arcade which is Funspot, and the general Weirs Beach area.  A short drive away, you have more options including the Squam Lakes Natural Scenice Center and fun seasonal activities like corn mazes.

Summer options include the obvious-- boating, canoeing , fishing, and swimming at the beaches on Lake Winnipesaukee.  There are plenty of hiking trails around to take in the views from above the trees, whether on foot or horseback.  Winter visitors can enjoy skiing, ice fishing, or snowmobiling.

This is the schedule as of April 28, 2019. More shows may be announced in the coming months depending on fundraising success.  Many towns will have fireworks each summer, including Meredith, Alton, Wolfeboro, Laconia and Center Harbor.

New Hampshire has no sales tax, so it's as if everything everywhere is always on sale. Tilton offers you the Tanger Outlet Center with more than 50 big name stores.  Up in Moultonborough, you'll want to check out The Old Country Store and see what has kept it in business for 234 years.  You shouldn't miss strolling around the Mill Falls Marketplace if you are seeking quaint little shops.

There are only about 50 National Scenic Byways in the country, and New Hampshire is proud to feature three of them.  The White Mountains Trail, the Connecticut River Byway, and by-far the most popular; the Kancamagus Highway.  In addition, NH offers over 1,000 miles of state or locally designated scenic byways. 

Skiiers love it. Gardeners loathe it.  And for six months out of the year, you can't escape it.  There is still much to do between artic blasts and nor easters, and we'll give you a quick run down on your options and what winter is like in the Lakes Region.
