There is a saying that “Where there is water, there is life.” Nowhere is that truer than in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. New Hampshire is home to 273 bodies of water, including Lake Winnipesaukee (the largest lake in the state), Squam Lake, Newfound Lake, Ossipee Lake, and Lake Sunapee – just to name a few of the gems.

Not only have these H2O oases given rise to a high concentration of recreational offerings, including boating and waterskiing in the summer to ice fishing and ice sailing in the winter, but also the lively four-season culture that surrounds their shores in the major towns of Laconia, Meredith, and Wolfeboro. Think everything from preserved historical sites and boat museums to an ever-evolving culinary scene and an annual motorcycle rally that is the third-largest in the US. So when it comes time to consider your next New Hampshire vacation or holiday, just remember that the Lakes Region is the place where life truly starts.

Walking and driving through the area is the best way to get to know this new favorite destination! Take a Lakes Region scenic drive along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee and Lakes Sunapee while taking in the calming scenery that surrounds visitors. Or, take a walk through small towns like Belmont Village, Tilton / Northfield, or Gilford Village that make up this beautiful area. Walking tours allow visitors to get to know how the area came to be and are one of the best ways to get to know the extensive history behind this New England area!
