It's beginning to look a lot like...those panicky few days left to shop before Christmas! Downtown Laconia merchants are up to the challenge of your final shopping list, and there's so much to choose from! If you need a snack or a meal, did you know that there are seven restaurants within an easy walk of the center of Downtown? There is something for everyone. Remember that the dollars you spend locally stay local, and you support your neighbors who live and work right here in the Lakes Region.
