September in NH’s Lakes Region

LAKES REGION — September is a great season for visiting the Lakes Region, as the beginning of the month usually has weather warm enough for outdoor summer activities, and the end of the month heralds the starts of fall foliage, festivals, and fairs. Travelers love to boat and swim on the beautiful lakes then go see fall harvests and farmers’ markets, getting the best of both seasons.

While visiting the Lakes Region, travelers can take advantage of special rates and deals being offered by area lodging properties. During September, Mill Falls at the Lake in Meredith is offering discounted rates for the entire month, and a number of lodging properties are offering special packages/events. To begin September, Danforth Bay Camping Resort in Freedom will host a Murder Mystery Weekend September 6-8. In the middle of the month, The NASWA Resort in Laconia, NH has a package for a BFF Girlfriend Getaway September 13-15, then Purity Spring Resort in East Madison, NH is inviting guests for a Baby Boomer Adventure Weekend September 20-22. In addition, bicycle enthusiasts, causal bikers and nature lovers alike will enjoy taking advantage of the Inn to Inn Bike Tour package with several participating inns throughout the Lakes Region.  Even without a special deal or package involved, however, there is much value to be had in a Lakes Region vacation, and many mid-week stays offered by area lodging properties are bargains. A full list of travel packages and lodging options can be found on the Lakes Region Tourism Association website.

Here are a few of the events going on in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire this September:

24th Annual Labor Day Weekend Craft Fair at the Bay at the Community House in Alton Bay - August 31-September 2. Free admission to an annual Lakes Region staple.

Fall Foliage Tours: Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad in Weirs Beach and Meredith - September 7-October 27. Passengers can relax and enjoy the scenery as they travel along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee.
