Wolfeboro Things to Do
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 motor boat traffic on Winnepesaukee, go to Crescent Lake or Lake Wentworth - both about a mile or less from Wolfeboro. There is a loon sanctuary you can visit.
There are lots of parks nearby that are good for picnics, etc. Try Cate Park in downtown Wolfeboro or Clark Point at the end of Clark Road.Related to:

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...more
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.more
The restuarant has a wonderful atmosphere. The lower level is fairly formal, the upper bar area is laid-back, and the deck out back overlooks the water. The food is always good. They served everything from burgers (several types to choose from - plain, onions/mushrooms, blue cheese, etc) to specialty pastas, to fresh fish dishes. The serving staff...more

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...more
5 Hotels in Wolfeboro
no one specific place to go: Lots of neat shops in town
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.Add to your Trip Planner
Wolfeboro Local Customs
Eat ice cream by the water!
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!Related to:
