Excitement and Relaxation Meet in the Lakes Region

The Lakes Region: the name alone evokes images of the blissful and lazy days of summer...the joyous exuberance of a child, knees to chest, cannonballing off a dock into crystal clear waters...and of camps, cottages and whole communities hugging the water's edge. There are 273 lakes and ponds in the Lakes Region-Winnesquam, Newfound and Squam are quite popular-but one lake dominates it: 72-square mile Lake Winnipesaukee, the largest lake in the state.

Lake Winnipesaukee is the sixth largest natural lake completely inside U.S. borders. Eight towns border the lake: Alton, Center Harbor, Gilford, Laconia, Meredith, Moultonboroughugh, Tuftonboro and Wolfeboro. It covers 72 square miles, is 28 miles long and 13 miles wide, and has numerous islands; the number is said to be anywhere from 230 to 274. The largest of these islands are Long Island (1,186 acres), Bear Island (780 acres), Cow Island (522 acres) and Governor's Island (504 acres).

Here the nation's first summer resort was created, and today Wolfeboro remains a popular vacation area; other communities-Meredith, Laconia and Weirs Beach, and Gilford-are every bit as popular.

Water, as you might expect, is a big part of the fun here, from swimming and fishing, to waterparks, cruise ships, boat tours and nature centers. In winter there's ice fishing, ice sailing, cross country and downhill skiing and snowmobiling, too.

To really get to know the Lakes Region, you also should explore communities like Sandwich, where the state's crafts organization was born; Wakefield, with an impressive historic district; Melvin Village, a favorite stop for antique lovers; and Plymouth, home of Plymouth State College and the Silver Cultural Arts Center. Venture south to Rochester, "the Lilac City" at the gateway to the Lakes Region, or north to Madison and Snowville, a sleepy hamlet where sleighs were once made.
