Making Your Bucket List

Our friends at WMUR-TV have once again come to the forefront- this time, simply by asking viewers what New Hampshire activities or places they would put on their 'bucket list'.

And, as usual the Lakes Region is among the leaders.

You can see a coyote at the Squam Lake 
Natural Science Center. (from SLNSC website.)

First, most people agree that you and your family can learn a lot by visiting the Squam Lake Science Center

Secondly, most concur that everyone needs to take at least one trip on the Mount Washington every year.

And we will witness that everyone should have a good meal at Hart's Turkey Farm at least once per summer.

And, finally, no one should leave the Planet Earth - or, the Granite State, without spending a day or two at the Laconia Motorcycle Week.

Nothing missing here - except moving to the Lakes Region.

Best Farmers Markets in NH?... Right Here.

The WMUR-TV team has recently asked their viewers to name the best farmers markets in the state.

And you shouldn't be surprised that among the top 10 were three Lakes Region markets.

No. 10 is Laconia's.

No. 8 is Tilton's.

And right up there at No. 2 is the one based in tiny little Tamworth. Like many things in the Lakes Region, you have to look more than once to see the beauty.
