Wolfeboro Things to Do

  • Beach

    If you park at the lake there is a small path that will wind around to the local public beach. It's not very big, but it's a good place to relax and hang out with your friends. Just remember to use sun screen. Found THAT out the hard way! (Higher altitude causes the sun to react quicker on your skin.)

  • The Lakes

    Spend time at or on the lake. There are little beaches and coves everywhere to go swimming. If you have a boat, use it! The lake is huge, and you can spend lots of time exploring. It's also very canoe and kayak friendly. Places around will rent them - try Winnepesaukee Kayak on Back Bay or Brewster Academy. If you want to get away from the heavy...

  • Dockside Grille & Dairy Bar

    There are two things that this place really has going for it. One is the location. It sets right on the lake and if you sit outside you can even overlook the lake. That's what I did. The other thing is the ice cream. I went in intending to order a grilled cheese or French fries or something at least a little bit substantial, but I couldn't get past...

  • Strawberry Patch

    I only ate at this restaurant once, but my meal was pretty good. I think my waffle was frozen and dethawed instead of made on the spot, but I was hungry and didn't care. The sausage and eggs were very good. A word of warning about the Pepsi/Coke if you get any-it's not real. It's the offbrand that is cheaper. Like the kind you would buy in...

  • Wolfe's Tavern

    Since "Tavern" wasn't an option I chose "Pub" because it reminded me of some of the better pubs in Ireland. (Of a great one in Dingle to be specific.) The Tavern is part of the Wolfeboro Inn, a hotel on the lake. It has a formal dining room, but I wasn't in the mood for anything that fancy. From the outside, the Tavern looked ritzy enough within...

  • West Lake Asia Cuisine

    I had a very delightful meal at this restaurant. It was reccommended to me and in the description I was told that the food was "light, non-greasy, and more traditional than American-Chinese food." I would have to agree on all points. All though I was a female dining alone, the staff were extremely courteous and helpful and seemed to actually care...

  • Your choice of 2 places for Chinese food

    Everyone in town has an opnion about which of these 2 Chinese restaurants are better. Frankly, I think they're pretty comparable in terms of price and quality, but I like the ambiance of West Lake better. Both are on Route 28 heading west out of town. Seabird is closer to the center of town and is an easy walk; West Lake is about a mile out of town...

  • Try all the beers at The Tavern

    This definitely has a Tavern feel - many rooms, fireplaces, wooden beams on the ceiling. They have about 75 beers in stock. The food is pretty good. Service sometimes is a bit slow if it's really packed, but generally it's good. Chicken Quesadillas. Even though these are under the appetizers, they're big enough to be a meal by themselves.

    tequila! 2 more images

    I was actually warned by the people who worked in the farmhouse NOT to go to Joe Green?s for the evening. They said that a bad crowd hung out there and that it was kind of scary. Once I met the Polish girls, however, they were very familiar with the place and wanted to take me. Since I hadn?t been and therefore hadn?t formed an opinion about it I went. And I had a great time. It wasn?t as crowded as some of the other pubs and bars in town and I loved sitting out on the back deck overlooking the lake. Drinks were reasonably priced and overall I thought it had a good vibe to it. We went back a couple of times and I had fun each time I went. After one visit everyone knew us.

    Brief story about my last visit?It was my last night in New Hampshire and the girls wanted me to try tequila. I had never done so. So, we went to Joe Green?s and had a couple of shots. Then we met some guys who kept buying us shots and in the end we wound up in the lake. No, we weren?t skinny dipping or going for a midnight swim-they tossed us in. It was a night I will never forget.

    Dress Code: Extremely casual is the dress code. We were in jeans.

  • Ditch the car once you're in town!

    Once you're in Wolfeboro, WALK or use your bike. The traffic patterns suck around here with the influx of tourists, and it takes forever to get through town. There are no traffic lights here, and cars are required to stop at crosswalks for pedestrians, so if you are driving, you will inch your way through town. If you are just trying to get from...

Wolfeboro Shopping

    Here are some cool places:
    1) Country Bookseller. This is a small, locally owned place. The people are well informed, and for a small shop, they are amazingly well stocked. They can also get things ordered, and they are sometimes there the next day.
    2) Lee's Confectionary: they make their own candies and chocolates. REALLY GOOD!
    3) Hampshire Pewter: They make their pewter in town. Beautiful things - everything from mugs to candlesticks, to christmas ornaments. They will engrave things.
    4) The Pottery Place: They make their pottery in the store, and you can sometimes watch them making the products if you time it right. Amazing work!
    5) Made On Earth: They sell clothes, accessories, books and music, candles, incenses, etc.

    Bailey's Bubble 1 more image

    by kooka3 Updated May 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A "tradition" in Wolfeboro is for people to get ice cream from Bailey's Bubble and people-watch in town. Bailey's is a take-away place right in the center of town. There are a few tables on the sidewalk and a few benches on Main Street, but most people will go to the docks by Back Bay or go across the street to the Town Park to eat next to the water.

    Bailey's has recently expanded from just soft ice cream to include about 20 flavors of hard ice cream, different sundaes, different types of drinks (shakes, malts, brown cows). Try the chocolate ice cream with peanut butter sauce - it's like a cold peanut butter cup!

    Just because it's a little cooler here than at most water-spots doesn't mean you shouldn't lather on the sun screen. I got sun poisioning on my leg and it swelled up twice its normal size in an hour. Be warned and be cautious!
