Our Massachusetts rental car business may focus on the state of Massachusetts, but Lake Winnipesaukee is a quick out-of-state trip that would be fun for travellers in any number. Located two hours way in the state of New Hampshire, the NH lakes region has so much to offer. During your stay in Boston, why not take a day to drive your Massachusetts rental car up to Lake Winnipesaukee to relax and enjoy the lake scene?
Reasons to Drive Your Massachusetts Rental Car to Lake Winnipesaukee
There are so many reasons to take a day to drive up to New Hampshire and visit the lakes region. First off, the area is gorgeous. The scenery alone will make you appreciate just how beautiful our country is. Second, you can try out boating, be it sailing or motor boating. If you bring your own boat, you can experience waterskiing, tubing snorkeling and so much more.
Landlubber? Take a hike along the Appalachian Trail and experience the breathtaking views. You could also take a hike up Mount Monadnock or Mount Washington. Check out the attractions or take some day trips to the surrounding Lake Winnipesaukee area.
Beach bum? There are many beaches to choose from where you can relax and let the rays soak in. Or become a fish and splash around in the water. We even have a very popular beach bar to hang out at.
Attractions at Lake Winnipesaukee
Perhaps the scenery or the lake doesn’t quite do it for you. That doesn’t mean you should drive your Massachusetts rental car to Lake Winnipesaukee for the day. There’s a variety of attractions to suit any preference!
- Funspot – an all-in-one place for fun, Funspot boasts an arcade, bowling alley, kiddie rides, and mini-golf all in one place. The kids won’t be able to get enough of Funspot!
- Dynamic Ceramics – If you like creating ceramic pieces, this is the place to go.
- Gymnastics – if your kids need to burn off energy, take them for some inexpensive fun. Gymnastics includes trampolines, rope swings, tumbling, uneven parallel bars, parallel bars, balance beam, horse and running trampoline.
- Logs of Fun – a smaller arcade than Funspot, but also less crowded.
- Go Karts – this will give you a little thrill and will also let your little ones try out their budding driving skills.
Come During the Fall and Experience the Fall Foliage!
The fall foliage in the Lake Winnipesaukee area is extraordinarily beautiful. The scenery gets painted in bright reds, oranges, and gold around the lake. You can view the scenery by boat, by foot, or even by train. The breathtaking autumn views are worth the trip alone in your Massachusetts rental car.

Try Your Hand at Making Your Own Wine
For those of you who enjoy a nice glass of wine, why not expand your horizons and try your hand at your own home made wine? During the first weekend of August, a celebration of New Hampshire winemaking takes place at the Rochester Fairgrounds. If you like wine, this would be an excellent time to take a trip with your Massachusetts rental car. More than two dozen local wineries take part in the “Live Free or Wine” festival. In June, there is also the Winnipesaukee Wine Festival held in the lakes region, which features wine, beer, and spirits from various wineries and breweries.
