1. A New England classic at Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire

Kayak class sponsored by the New England Handicapped Sports Association at Lake Sunapee on Aug. 10, 2008.

Surrounded by covered bridges and Norman Rockwell villages, idyllic Lake Sunapee is one of New England’s prettiest lakes. Its spotless beach, a shady grove of picnic tables and a playground are a hit with families at Mt. Sunapee State Park, where you can also rent kayaks or SUPs at the concession stand for a reasonable fee. The water is at its warmest in late summer, making a Labor Day getaway to this corner of New Hampshire a fine time to splash in the lake.
