Things To Do This Summer In The Lake Sunapee Region

Happy Summer! Normally we are all so busy during the summer to fit everything we want to do in, but this year might be a little different for most of us. If you are looking for some fun summer things, check out our list of events, campgrounds, golfing and a few other entertaining options. There are a lot of outdoor activities in the Lake Sunapee Region, so if none of these things interest you, there is always hiking, fishing, kayaking or canoeing. Visiting Lake Sunapee and other local bodies of water is always a favorite (here's a list of public boat launches in the region)! You could also just take a nice walk through the trails or enjoy lunch outside at some of our amazing local restaurants. Stay cool and enjoy the rest of summer.
