52 Weekend Getaways: Lake Winnipesaukee

Fly the vintage skies.

| Boston Magazine |

Sure, you can pass a pleasant afternoon absorbing Lake Winnipesaukee scenes from a sailboat, but the view’s much better from above. Pilot Phil DiVirgilio re-creates the golden age of aviation by using 1930s-era Waco Classic biplanes to give lake tours and romantic sunset rides. 603-250-6184, lakesbiplane.com.
