Looking for something fun to do locally in the Lake Sunapee area? Or perhaps you’re looking for area travel booklets or what’s happening over the long weekend? Stop by the Sunapee Information Booth (phone 603-763-2201) on Route 11 in the center of town. It’s stocked with a variety of literature including a guide to NH parks, shopping guides, and special event notices; and on the rack one can find the latest edition of the SooNipi Magazine and several local newspapers. (Last week, The Compass, the new regional weekly published by HippoPress, and the InterTown Record out of Sutton were available.) Marilyn Morse, Isabel Torno and Rem Mastin are amongst those that work at the information center. They are longtime Sunapee residents and know the area well.
