Lake Winnipesaukee, about 70 square miles of glacial lake in central New Hampshire, provides enough room for a big boat like the M/S Mt. Washington to lazily cruise. Stop at the small-town ports of call or just wave to the some 253 islands in the massive lake, but treat yourself to a pleasant and unique experience.
The grand paddle wheeler Mt. Washington first plowed these waters in 1872, but caught fire in 1939, and was replaced with this successor M/S Mt. Washington. Dinner dance cruises, weddings, and other fancy affairs send music and excited voices from the decks to the curious watching the lovely sight from shore. But it’s not all frolic; for some it’s just a way to get from one town to another.
Now that the lake has thawed, the first cruise is scheduled for this Sunday, May 10th, Mother’s Day. It looks the beginning of another wonderful summer on Lake Winnipesaukee.
