Lakes Region

Lake Winnnipesaukee and New Hampshire's central lakes: summer tourist destination

The name alone stirs memories of blissful, sunny days spent on the water, the joy of vacations, boat rides and camp, when everything moved at a slow summer simmer; and you connected with people and places that still resonate within you today. Summer may be the Lakes Region’s best-known season, but wrap the hillsides in spring green, the blazing colors of fall or a thick blanket of snow, and it is every bit as magical. While there are 273 lakes and ponds in the Lakes Region, one lake dominates them all: Lake Winnipesaukee.

The Lakes Region of New Hampshire is the mid-state region surrounding Lake Winnipesaukee, Winnisquam Lake, Squam Lake, and Newfound Lake.

The area is a popular tourist destination in the summer time, with the activity peaking during the annual Motorcycle Week and races at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
