Things to Do In and Around Wolfeboro, NH


Take a classic New England town, perch it on the banks of New Hampshire’s largest lake, add spectacular views of mountain ranges across the water, surround it with fabulous hiking and cross country ski trails, sprinkle in some beaches, museums, concert venues and shopping, and the result is Wolfeboro, NH.

Known as “America’s Oldest Summer Resort,” Wolfeboro sits on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, the third largest lake in New England. During the off-season, Wolfeboro is a cozy community of a little more than 6,000 year-round residents. When the weather warms up (or the ice fishing derby is happening!), the population swells five-fold as second homeowners return to their vacation properties and visitors come to enjoy the area’s stunning beauty and plentiful activities.

Whether you enjoy arts and culture, outdoor activities, or shopping and dining, the perfect adventures await in the Wolfeboro area. We’ve shared a few suggestions at the links below.
