MerrimackRiverOver the summer many tourists flock to Holderness and the lakes region to take advantage of the many lakes and all the fun they have to offer.  Fishing, boating, water skiing, and kayaking are just a few of the great things to do!

If history is your thing you might enjoy the Holderness Historical Society’s points of interest driving tour.  See the waterfalls, the mill which was once part of Holderness, the Holderness School, and many other historic buildings, some of which date back to the 18th century.

The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is a great place to stop if you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of all the local wildlife without getting too close.  The Science Center is full of interactive exhibits, as well as live animal exhibits and several hiking trails and lake tours.  There is plenty to see and lots to learn about!

The Quincy Bog Natural Area  and the Markus Wildlife Sanctuary  are both home to some lovely hiking trails.  As nature preserves they will allow you to see plenty of flora and fauna in all of its unspoiled glory.
