A great lake in a part of the country deprived of Great Lakes. Not that New England -- and particularly the White Mountains region of New Hampshire -- has anything to complain about regarding drawing the short straw when nature's beauty was being divvied up, but massive signature lakes are not a conspicuous characteristic of the region. But Lake Winnipesaukee... More

The Lake Winnipesaukee area has something for everyone. In June, the roar of motorcycles can be heard everywhere as Laconia is the home of the oldest motorcycle rally in the world. There is too much to do to list here. I suggest you go online and see for yourself whet the area has to offer.

We went to New England in hopes of doing a lot of leaf peeping. Unfortunately however, because of a warm September the trees didn't cooperate so the foliage change was spotty at best. We took the train ride along the lake and were lucky enough to get the cupola in the caboose so it gave us a better view as... More

We set off on our cruise in appalling weather and very quickly the boat was shipping water through many "orifices". We were soon moved to a drier part of the boat!! Didn't really see anything of the lake as it poured down all the time. So perhaps my 3* rating may be a bit harsh!

We took end boat trip on the Mount Washington. The weather was chilly and a bit blowy but bright sunshine. The scenery was terrific the the trees in great colour. A really pleasant trip and I would recommend it. The boat fine and stable. The only annoying part was when the pier hand insisted on searching bags. I don't think... More

We had a lovely ride around the lake. We were with a touring group so also had the buffet, which was very good.

The two and half hour cruise was absolutely worth the time! We even got an AAA discount for our tickets. Sights were beautiful with million dollar mansions lining the shore. I would highly recommend this boat trip.

We go to this area every September. It is a beautiful time of the year and not many tourists. Most of the restaurants are open and all the shops! If you've never visited New Hampshire, it's a great place. Weirs Beach and its shops/restaurants are still opened as well! Awesome!

I grew up vacationing here and so it is magical to me! Understated and sort of like a hidden treasure, being from NY this is a much more relaxed way of life and it is great to get to experience even if just for a vacation!
