Lake Sunapee Scenic and Cultural Byway

What does the Presidential Range, Canterbury Shaker Village, Amoskeag Millyard, Moose Path north of the notches, and Lake Sunapee have in common? Each are central to a New Hampshire Scenic Byway showcasing some of the state’s most outstanding scenic, cultural, historical, natural and recreational values.

The Lake Sunapee Scenic Byway is now the subject of a slide show that’s going on the road. Presentations will be shown in Sunapee on Thursday, October 15 at 7 p.m. at the Sunapee Town Offices; in New London on Monday, October 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the New London Town Offices; and in Newbury on Wednesday, October 21 at 7 p.m. at the Newbury Town Offices.

The slide show is a virtual tour of the Lake Sunapee Scenic Byway–a driving route around Lake Sunapee that connects the towns of New London, Newbury and Sunapee along Routes 11, 103, and 103B.

“The purpose of the slide show is to inform the public of the resources along the Byway and to spark discussion about potential future projects or improvements on the Byway,” according to the program announcement.

The Lake Sunapee Scenic Byway committee hopes to expand the route to include the town centers and add Route 103A and a loop through New London along Newport Road, Main Street and King Hill Road.

The slide show presentations are part of a Byway planning project funded by the Federal Highway Administration through the National Scenic Byways Program. For more information,  contact Rachel Ruppel, Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission, at 603-448-1680.
