If you’re the landlocked type, an alternative to a cruise is to ride the Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad. You’ll be treated to scenery along Paugus Bay if you ride south towards Lakeport; while the northern route takes you along the edge of Meredith Bay to Meredith. Buy your tickets at the small kiosk on the boardwalk, at 211 Lakeside Avenue.
