Day Two

Breakfast is included this morning before we begin our day of touring. Our first stop takes us to Meredith where we are excited to introduce you to a brand-new experience and activity at the Hobo & Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad – exploring the rails with Rail Bike Adventures! Enjoy the beauty and history of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region as you and your family or friends pedal state-of-the-art four passenger rail bikes along a rail line that dates back to the mid-1800’s. Your guided rail bike adventure will begin and end at the historic Laconia Railroad Station in Veterans Square which opened in 1892 and operated until the late 1960’s. Each custom-made rail bike is equipped with comfortable seating, built-in hand-holds, pedals for up to four riders, hydraulic hand brakes and a basket on the rear of the bike for personal items. A variety of snacks and bottled beverages are available before departure.  If riding the rail bikes is not your cup of tea our local guide will take you downtown to the Mills Falls Marketplace for a little shopping and leisure time along the lakefront. Next, we travel to the charming town of Wolfeboro for lunch and shopping on your own. We complete our day with a visit to the Wright Museum of World War II. Another wonderful dinner is included at a local restaurant. (B,D)

This afternoon we travel to Squam Lake for an afternoon cruise where you will hopefully, see some of the famous loons and where the Academy Award Winning movie “On Golden Pond” was filmed.
