|NEW HAMPSHIRE: THE LAKES REGION
|Lakeside cottages, cookouts in rest areas, lazy days
in the warm sunshine with a cool breeze - the ideal
family vacation from the 1950s and 1960s. The Lakes
Region of New Hampshire is one of the only places in
the country where you can relive those simpler, safer,
Tubing on Lake Winnipesaukee
provides enjoyment for the entire family.
Massive Lake Winnipesaukee is one of the largest lakes
in the continental United States. It's picturesque towns,
each of which is a perfect example of postcard New England
life and worth exploring for a day, and cottage and camping
communities which dot the lakeshore are life as we knew
it. Although all the modern convenience and amenities are
available, the area has moved with the times without losing
its charm from days past. For instance, there is a decades-old
amusement attraction at Weir's Beach (one of the lake's
major ports) which is housed in perfectly preserved buildings,
but which features the most modern of video games. It is
also the home of a national competition for players of
the older arcade games from pinball up to PacMan and Pong,
all of which are available as well as the new games. In
addition to a multiplex in town, there is a still a Drive-In-Theatre,
perfect for a family-oriented or romantic vacation evening!
Weirs Beach, know for hosting the
Annual Motorycle week is always a great family spot.
The Weirs offers swimming, fishing, boating, arcades
The biggest attraction, year-round, of couse remains
the lake itself. In summer, it provides the best
of everything the water in New Hampshire has to offer:
safe, clean swimming; abundant fishing; lazy cruises
or sailing. In winter, there's ice-fishing and -sailing,
skating, skiing and plenty of well-marked snowmobiling
Experience a good, old-fashioned, "real"
vacation in New Hampshire's Lakes Region!
