Laconia, NH provides year round recreational opportunities for everyone, no matter your interests. The city was founded in 1893 and it was one of the largest native settlements in the region. Laconia evolved into a manufacturing center, producing lumber, textiles, shoes, hosiery, knitting machinery and needles for knitting machines. Manufacturing was the town’s main industry, until tourism developed in the area due to new transportation in the late 18th and early 19th century. Today, Laconia is still visited by many tourists who enjoy all of the natural wonders the area has to offer.
Bikers from far and wide come to gather on Weirs Beach in June of each year. Laconia Motorcycle Week is known as the nation’s oldest national motorcycle rally, dating back to the summer of 1916, when a Gypsy Tour gathered for several days at Weirs Beach on the southern shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. Bikers participate in twisties and sweepers, racing and hill-climbing, bike shows and build-offs, all with beautiful views of the lake and mountains.
