Fodor's Expert Review Squam Lakes Natural Science Center

Holderness Zoo/Aquarium Fodor's Choice

This 230-acre property includes a ¾-mile nature trail that passes by trailside exhibits of black bears, bobcats, otters, mountain lions, red and gray fox, and other native wildlife. A pontoon boat cruise, one of the center's main attractions, is the best way to tour the waterfront. Naturalists talk about the animals that make their home here, and give fascinating facts about the loon. Children's activities include learning about bugs and wilderness survival skills.
