Monkey Trunks

Monkey Trunks offers fun for children, adults and families! Participants begin with ground school and receive safety instructions on how to navigate through the course. They then move on to the green course to demonstrate they have the ability to properly use their equipment. After completing these two stages, participants will progress through the levels - each level becomes progressively more challenging! Monkey Trunks courses feature ziplines, swinging beams, tightropes, rolling logs, hanging tires, cargo nets and more! Each Monkey Trunks location includes a children's course for the littlest of monkeys, with platforms no more than 6' off the ground. The children's courses include 6-8 challenges with an 80' zipline at the finish. Reservations are encouraged and can be made anytime online or by phone! Our Weirs Beach location offers a unique experience - zipping at night!

Great staff walk you through a training course before you head to the main course on your own. Rules are easy to follow and staff are on hand to remind you. Some rope spans are quite challenging while others are quite easy. Zip line was great fun!

Gunstock Mountain Resort

Reviewed By BaseballRules13 - Boston, Massachusetts

I cannot say enough about the Fantastic experience we had Gunstock this past week. I've been a skier on the East Coast for 40 years and have a lot of experience with different ski resorts. Gunstock went out of their way to bee friendly, accommodating and helpful. We were able to save a ton of money but using the flex pass option to discount tickets, rentals and lessons. I was glad that we brought our own lunch because I thought that the food in the cafeteria was a little bit pricey, compared to what they charge for other services. I thought that the trails were very well kept, the lodge was comfortable though basic and the people were very accommodating and made the experience fun. The only downside was that the crowds at the ticket office and Rental pickup were brutal on the first day. We spent 45 minutes in each line which would have been awful if that was the only day we were skiing. however once we managed that situation the first day, we were able to skip all of that waiting for the next days. I highly recommend this mountain for a great family experience.

Breakfast, lunch and cocktails are available on board. Sunset dinner dance cruises feature buffet dinner and dancing to live music.

Staying in Meredith for a few days included a coupon for the Lake cruise which we have never done.
It was a bit cool but the trip to Wolfboro from Weirs Beach was great. Our only complaint was the food. Under a Deli Offering it had a Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce sandwich. Sounded good, but what we got was a very greasy, heavy grilled Turkey and stuffing sandwich. Not " Deli " as we know it.

American Police Motorcycle Museum

Museum is closed. Our museum is the only museum in the country which chronicles the history of the motorcycle policeman. There are 94 motorcycles on display from 1909 to 2005, a movie theater, a workshop where we build a bike a year, a special Laconia Race exhibit with racers from 1909 to the present,our lobby is dedicated to our military with original WW11 motors and much more. Our pride and joy is our junior motor officer area where children receive a badge and police ID card if they take a pledge to read every night, obey their parents, promise not to bully, and say no to drugs.

Game arcade offering a special room of working vintage 1970s and '80s games.

Reviewed By NYY_FanIn_BOS_Nation - Boston, Massachusetts

It is like a trip down memory lane. They have hundreds of arcade games, mostly older from the 1970's/1980's (including an original "pong" game) to somewhat more modern machines.
The selection of pinball machines is not as expansive, but it is a nice selection, the only problem is a few need to be fixed so the bumpers & flipper paddles are more responsive.
The have bowling, skee-ball and other fun activities too.
There are games for little kids all the way through big kid adults.

We had an enjoyable few hours here.

Reviewed By vrrooom - George Town, Grand Cayman

Beach has plenty of parking, picnic groves and shade. It is a great place to picnic and has a large 1000' Long Beach with a sandy bottom and gradual slope. Very good for family outing as the beach is sheltered from the wind and waves on the lake.

Weirs Beach

Reviewed By lov2travel0791 - Waltham, Massachusetts

We decide to take a weekend get away and went to check out the Weirs Beach area. We stayed at the Bay Top Motel, delightful. The actual beach at Weirs is small, clean and noisy. Bath houses are available, which were convenient. The "strip" consists of a few food options and some Tourists shops selling Weirs Beach souvenirs. We had some pizza on the new pier, it was Sal's if I recall. The slices were huge! I had buffalo chicken, yummy. They also make fried dough from their excellent pizza dough. I could not resist with butter and a ton of sugar. All the arcades were fun, we have an arcade junkie in the family. We spent time at each. The best with respect to prizes was the one on the new pier. They could have had more games which gave out tickets. We went into Laconia for dinner. We were hopeful we could make a movie at the drive-in, but dinner ended too late. We took a cruise on the lake. It was fun, but would have liked to have more information about what we we were seeing. We ended the weekend with an overpriced "make your own Sunday". The ice cream was really good the toppings were plentiful and all the ones you could think of. However, it was expensive. We also went to the candy shop there, bought some rich, chocolate fudge. The ladies making the candy and the person greeting us at the door were very nice. This area has several things to do and one more day would have been good.
Give this low-key, throwback, lakeside town a try!
