Laconia '13

I'm thinkin' of going to Laconia for their 90th anniversary in 2013 and was wondering if anyone had any tips on places to stay etc. I'm not looking to camp. Since its the 90th I don't think it's too early to start planning. Any advice or input would be appreciated

Bike week takes place at Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee. There's plenty of places to stay in the area, just search the "Lakes Region" in NH. Towns like Meredith, Alton, Tilton, Franklin, Moultonborough and of course Laconia.
You have a handful of places in Concord and a Red Roof Inn in Loudon.
The only other thing I'd add is that Lake Winni is a LLOOONNGG lake. If you want to stay close to the action, stick to the Western side of the Lake. Good luck.

My only advice is to plan on me going as well!!!

I wont have a full week to take off, but I was thinking of leaving Thursday for NY and leaving NY Sunday.

I know 2 days aint much, but its enough to test out my setup for the big SW trip and cross Laconia off my list.

Laconia is a good time but for a biker rally its more about the riding than the partying. There is some phenominal riding up there. Its always to me anyways, been the tamer rally. Still a great time but the ride there and around the surronding areas is what its about. And this is coming from someone who likes to drink and party..

To the OP, we stayed about 15 minutes from Laconia in a cabin set up. It was really nice. I will try and look up what the info on that was.

Sounds great Dan. I was thinkin' of going to the Ky. State Hog Rally in London the weekend of the 8th and heading up to Laconia from there....meandering around a bit and get to the area around midweek. Then head back Sunday. Nuthins in stone though.

They say nowhere in New Hampshire is more then an hour from Laconia but sounds like the lake region is the place to stay.

One of the companies you can try is preferredrentals.com

They are a realty company, but they may only have inventory that is a weekly rental. I was able to find a small camp on a lake for $1200 for the week. Not bad when you split that between 4 guys.

It depends how close to the maham you want to be. If you stay in the Weirs area, plan on sitting in a lot of traffic, all the time. I would recommend staying within an hour and riding down when you feel like it. That let's you do what you should be doing, riding on some of the best roads in the world. Dan has the right idea, Lincoln is a great base area.

This has peaked my interest. A rally meet and greet could be cool.

I'm sure one of us will plan a Meet and Greet long before the event. We had one last year but only 3 RGers from here showed up. Part of the problem is that on the final weekend, traffic gets so bad that it can take you a long time to get anywhere if you're within 10 miles of the Weirs. Probably best to have a Meet and Greet on some day other than Friday or Saturday. Maybe Thursday at dinner time would work. We could plan it at a casual restaurant at 5:00 and hang out for a while then grab a bite to eat. Plenty of time to organize that.
