This weekend will be the last weekend of summer before Fall officially starts on September 22nd. Luckily, the weather is expected to be marvelous, reaching 80 degrees. Here are some suggestions for how to enjoy your last weekend of summer. Enjoy whatever you do! 

Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough 

This mountaintop estate is a popular tourist destination for its exquisite beauty and unique history. Visitors can choose from several activities while visiting the estate including: touring the mansion, eating at the restaurant located on the property, horseback riding and/or visiting the estate's exhibit gallery.

DeVylder Farm in Wolfeboro 

This local farm offers all the fruits and vegetables you'll need to make a wonderful end of summer meal. 

Rail Trail in Wolfeboro 

The rail trail is a great way to enoy summer scenery before foliage season. The trail is 11 miles long, beginning at Depot Street in Wolfeboro, and ends at Route 16 in Wakefield. 

End of Summer Home Maintenance 

This may not seem like an ideal way to spend your last weekend of summer but it could leave you feeling accomplished and prepared for the upcoming colder seasons. 

Water Activities in The Lakes Region 

Perhaps the best way to enjoy the last weekend of summer should somehow involve one of the many gorgeous lakes in our area. Whether boating, swimming, fishing, waterskiing, etc., enjoy the water now because soon, it will be too cold!
