I'm so happy to see Laconia thriving! Sure, it's in a great location between the two lakes, but that could've easily been destroyed by over-commercialization. Living in Vermont, I decided to return to many other places in New Hampshire I went to as a kid and later as a young adult. West Lebanon, Claremont, even North Conway, are all suffering; barely anything to do and see, and what is left is overpriced and not worth the price of admission. At least one place I remember is still great as ever; my family and I used to stay at a friend's condo in Tilton, and we went to Laconia when we stayed there. Thanks to this, now I want to go back to Laconia and Tilton again!
