The touristy Scenic Railroad offers one- or two-hour lakeside rides aboard 1920s and '30s train cars departing from Weirs Beach and Meredith (154 Main St). The train travels to Lake Winnipesaukee's southern tip at Alton Bay before making a U-turn. Kids love the ice-cream-parlor car; for $25 (per adult or child) you can ride in the caboose.
