A summer walk down Wolfeboro's Main Street is like a walk through Oscar Wilde's play "Our Town", the quintessential New Hampshire downtown. With weekly band concerts at the town's lakeshore gazebo, a family-owned local bakery, and the "white elephant" sale at the annual hospital benefit fair, you'll feel like you stepped back in time. Look a bit closer and you see the modern side of Wolfeboro that includes some of the area's finest dining and nightspots, shopping and water sports.

Nestled between the eastern shores of Lake Winnipesaukee and the western shores of Lake Wentworth, the town of Wolfeboro offers much to its residents and visitors. Whether it is touring one of the country's oldest hand-made pewter makers, walking the trails in the Sewall Woods Conservation Area, enjoying one of many beaches or ski areas, or even skateboarding at "The Nick", the lake is just a part of the many things to do.

If you are looking for a change in scenery, New Hampshire's White Mountains and the White Mountains National Forest are just an hour away and offer another wide range of recreation and exploring. Take a drive up the Mt. Washington Auto Road to the highest point in the Northeast, explore miles of trails for walkers and experienced backpackers, or visit North Conway's many outlet stores.

Whether you would like eggs for breakfast, fresh bread still steaming from the oven or a nice refreshing ice cream to end your day, Wolfeboro has some place to fit every taste. Below is a sampling of the local offerings. If you find a great spot that isn't on the list, please let us know so we can pass it along.

A glance at any New Hampshire map will show why this is called the "Lakes Region." Ancient glaciers molded this land into the lakes, rivers, and mountains that draw people here to work, play, or to simply live in the beauty of it all.

Covering over 72 square miles, Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest and grandest of the lakes and offers a wide range of year-round recreation. Ringed by eight communities, the "Big Lake" provides spectacular scenery and year-round enjoyment.

Just east of the Big Lake is Lake Wentworth, home to one of Wolfeboro's three public beaches, Albee Beach. The beach is a short drive out of downtown, or an easy bike ride on the "rail trail."

To the north are the Squam Lakes, Little Squam and Big Squam, known to many as the beautiful setting for "On Golden Pond." To the west are Lake Winnisquam, Newfound Lake, and Lake Sunapee.

Each of these lakes has its own unique character and beauty.
