There’s so much happening all around New Hampshire this Memorial Day Weekend it’s hard to know where to begin! But in our opinion, the best place to begin is in the middle—centrally located with easy access to all the festivities that are kicking off summer—and that place is right here in Meredith.

In addition to some great events happening in the Lakes Region, many of the major attractions in New Hampshire’s White Mountains Region are opening this holiday weekend, most of them within a 45-minute drive of Meredith.
