Weirs Beach (Laconia)

Weirs Beach represents its own era in American history. It has a certain amusement park nostalgia, right down to the blinking neon sign on Rt.3 that directs you to the beach itself. We love this sign, you just can't miss Weirs Beach. Here you can stroll the boardwalk while enjoying the beautiful views of the lake. As the name implies there is a public beach, town docks, arcades, waterslides, and the area's only Drive-In theater, specializing in double-features. At the center of the boardwalk is what looks like a railroad station, although it is really the building that houses the M/S Mount Washington ticket office, gift shop and snack bar. Notable events for Weirs Beach are weekly fireworks displays throughout the summer. Mount Washington Cruises has 3 boats and numerous cruises from Weirs Beach each day.

From I-93 take Exit 23, Rte. 104 East towards Meredith and continue for 8 miles. At the end of the road turn right on to Rte. 3 South and follow for 3.5 miles until you see the sign for Weirs Beach on your left. Turn left at the sign. The Mount Washington ticket office is located in the center of the boardwalk at the Railroad Station.
