This One Beautiful New Hampshire Lake Has A Beach That Rivals The Coast

New Hampshire has some great nature. Forests, trails, and lots of mountains. But beaches? Some folks might not think we measure up to our New England neighbors. To those people we say, “okay, you might be right!” The truth is that while we love our 13 miles of coast, sometimes we want to try something new. That’s why we love this lake beach. Don’t let the fact that it’s not on the ocean dissuade you from a visit. In fact, you might just forget that you’re sunning your buns at a lake!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
