Park n’ Ride and Hop On/Off Trolleys Connect at Wolfeboro Depot
Visitors to Wolfeboro will enjoy hassle-free unlimited parking this summer thanks to Jolly the Trolley, who will run a Park ‘n Ride shuttle from the Kingswood Arts Center, 21 McManus Rd, to Downtown Wolfeboro every day in July and August.
Jolly will connect with Molly the Trolley at the Wolfeboro Depot and Dockside, where Molly will continue welcoming visitors and vacationers to Wolfeboro on the Hop On/Off Narrated Tours she has done for 33 years.
“It’s time,” said Wolfeboro Trolley Company Owner Kathy Fairman Eaton. “Our visitors deserve a convenient, safe place to leave their cars and stay as long as they want without worrying about getting a parking ticket.”
Wolfeboro is located on the northeastern shore of Lake Winnipesaukee where visitors can walk to dozens of shops, galleries, restaurants, and attractions (including four different lake cruises) along the downtown waterfront.
Long known as the “Oldest Summer Resort in America,” it is today very much a 21st Century vacation destination where millennial entrepreneurs offer up local craft beer pubs, a creperie, a cold-pressed juice bar, cafes, farm-to-table restaurants and a winery, while at the same time embracing the town’s nostalgic heritage.
With six museums including the nationally renowned Wright Museum of World War II History, The NH Boat Museum, The Libby Museum of Natural History, Clark House Museum (1778), Pleasant Valley Schoolhouse (1801) and Monitor Engine House (antique firefighting equipment,) indoor and outdoor concerts, art and jewelry galleries, an old-fashioned book store and its own community theatre, Wolfeboro is culturally and historically alive.
Yet it is Wolfeboro’s spectacular natural beauty that’s earned it the distinction of being the “Jewel of Lake Winnipesaukee.” With two lakes and three ponds of its own (in addition to Winnipesaukee,) the opportunities to experience the best of New Hampshire’s outdoors are numerous: four public beaches, four public boat launch ramps (with public docks and parking,) two golf courses, hiking and biking trails, bike, kayak, SUP, canoe, power boat and jet ski rentals.
Molly the Trolley’s Hop On/Off Narrated Tour is a great way to see some of Wolfeboro’s most beautiful spots, including elegant homes, as well as learn more about its rich history and more than “101 Things to Do.”
