New England Lake Towns
Top Travel + Leisure List

Every Fourth of July, people flood to New England’s lakes. For generations, people have been eager to get out on the water, take in gorgeous scenery, and enjoy bustling lake towns. So, when Travel + Leisure was putting together their list of the country’s 15 Best Lake Towns, it’s no surprise that three of our favorites were included.

Rangeley, Maine
Lake Towns: Rangeley Lakes Region, ME

This certainly isn’t the first time the Rangeley Lakes Region has been in the spotlight. Rand McNally described the area as “one of America’s few remaining vacation spots where one can truly escape most of the disadvantages of civilization.” From a home like Barker Loop Camp, discover terrific salmon and trout fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and hiking.

Lake Towns: Get out on Lake Winnipesaukee from Wolfeboro, the oldest summer resort in America

It makes sense that New Hampshire’s largest lake, Lake Winnipesaukee, is surrounded by some of New England’s most popular lake towns. Wolfeboro in particular has been visited for generations and claims the title of “the oldest summer resort in America.” After exploring this waterfront town center, get out onto the lake, which has an expansive 72 square miles of water.
