When buying a house here in the Lakes Region people often ask about winter activities and proximity to local ski areas. Skiing is very popular here in northern New England and there are numerous excellent resorts in New Hampshire and Maine that are an easy drive from Wolfeboro and the towns surrounding Lake Winnipesaukee. Whether new to the sport or an experienced skier, there is something for everyone here. Take a look at the graphic below to get an idea of the distances between our towns and some of the best weekend getaways around!

What is the world's largest lizard? Who wrote "The Shipping News"? How many points are on a backgammon board? If you know the answers to these trivia questions, then you should form a team and join the third annual Team Trivia Tournament to benefit the Wolfeboro Area Children's Center. The tournament is held each Wednesday night at the Wolfeboro Inn Ballroom from 5-8 pm through February 19; tickets are $15 per person, which includes hearty soups, breads, and a salad bar. Advance tickets are strongly recommended. Amaze yourself with your ability to recall meaningless information! Come test your knowledge of useless facts! With teams that go by the names of "Know It Alls" and "Trivialities," anything is possible.

Wolfeboro - Summer activities in full swing

WOLFEBORO -- The town's economic development committee is spreading the word that the Wolfeboro area is more than just a scenic place by the lake.

The 10-member Wolfeboro Economic Development Committee, headed by Chairman Zach Tarter, a professional investment adviser with Edward Jones, and Vice Chair Denise Roy-Palmer, executive director of the Wentworth Economic Development Corp., has worked with business and municipal leaders on a number of fronts to strengthen -- and publicize -- the region's business-friendly appeal.

Enhancing online presence from the town's website was accomplished recently by including links from the home page to maps and details on the town's two economic revitalization zones, the business park off Pine Hill Road and Wickers Drive, and on Center, Lehner and Pine streets.

"We believe our region has a lot to offer to business and industries throughout the U.S.," Tarter said. Those assets include potential tax credits from the state, no sales tax, a family-friendly, high quality of life, and relatively close proximity to major metropolitan areas including Manchester and Boston.
