Travel Guide

Meredith featuring a marina

Idyllically located between vast, blue lakes among thick pine forests, this modest town serves as a gateway to numerous beautiful natural landscapes.

Walk along gorgeous woodland trails to discover secluded bays and stunning lookout points in Meredith. Immerse yourself in a community that is well stocked with parks and outdoor recreation areas and slip away for an afternoon on the golf course.

Arrive in Meredith and find the enthralling backcountry canvas that invites you to explore. Head west onto three marked trails circling Lake Waukewan. Hike along the northern shore of Meredith Bay on colossal Lake Winnipesaukee. Centuries-old oak and pine trees shield you from the most intense of the sun’s rays while the ground is decorated with bright and fragrant flowers.

With so much shoreline near Meredith, there are plenty of secret coves. One of the best is Leavitt Park, south of town. Find soft, golden sand and superb swimming conditions adjacent to a small carpark. Waukewan Beach on the opposite side of town is set against a backdrop of sharp mountains and rolling hills.

For all its natural majesty, much of the area’s charm comes from its welcoming atmosphere. The streets are lined with craft shops and wineries and children and adults play in parks close by. Eat lunch at the delightful canal-side picnic area in Swasey Park. Choose from a range of activities at Waukewan Highlands Community Park. This 190-acre (77-hectare) forest offers ample opportunity for hiking and mountain biking. In winter a natural ice rink is the star attraction.

Try fishing for salmon and trout in the surrounding waterways and golf at Oak Hill Golf Course, a 5-minute drive west. This atmospheric nine-hole course also has a pro shop and rental store.

Meredith is in Belknap County, a 45-minute drive north of the state capital of Concord. Diners and cafés in Meredith offer food that is simple yet sumptuous, with freshly caught fish always a good choice.
