We made a day trip here when staying in NH one day this summer and we had fun. We lucked out with someone leaving a parking spot right across from Weir's beach, otherwise, it was pretty full along the street. We walked along the boardwalk which was pretty average, but nice lake views. There were a few shops and a... More

I was visiting my boyfriend and he took me for a scenic tour of Lake Winnipesaukee. Wherever we went, whatever road we drove on, the view was absolutely STUNNING! The colors are beautiful, the houses on the banks were nice...I can only imagine how busy this place is during the summer. Looks like I will be back to check that... More

We were disappointed we added this to our tour of New England as the lakeside mostly belongs to residential housing and we couldn’t even have a walk along it.

Fall colors are amazing, a must see in Autumn. Definitely worth a stay overnight here. A little rainy but still beautiful. If you like snapping photos, this is a great place.

It was raining so we didn't go out on the lake, but the drive around was fun. Charming lakeside towns and beautiful Fall foliage.

If you love to swim, boat, fish, shop, eat fabulous food, catch the local farmers markets, fairs, parades, and much more you will find it here. Animal lovers will watch bald eagles fly and loons swim by. I recommend Wolfeboro for the family and Meredith for shopping.

Luckily, we were with friends who had lakeshore property.. Our piece of lake heaven had crystal water, beautiful scenery from every angle. I love the ocean, but for this lake, I would definitely return.
