Methodist Circle is in the heart of Weirs Beach. Most of Weirs beach attractions are 5 minutes or less walking distance.
Weirs Beach itself is flanked by a boardwalk lined with plenty of arcades, places to eat, and various activities. There are restrooms, and the Weirs is central to most other area attractions. Some Friday nights during the summer there are fireworks at 10pm. The rain date is the following night. The beach is wide and sandy, and stays pretty shallow out a good ways making is good for water games. Take a ride aboard the Sophie C, which is a U.S. mail boat. The boat departs from Weirs Beach, and is a sister vessel of the Mount Washington. The Sophie C is quite different than its big brother the Mount. It's lower to the water and much smaller, therefore it tends to rock slightly with the waves and just feels less like a cruise and more like a boat ride. It winds around the islands of Lake Winnipesaukee to deliver mail, and it even sells ice cream on board. It's typically more interesting for children.
