June 10th – 19th: 93rd Laconia Motorcycle Week

The tradition continues: 2016 means it’s the 93rd Laconia Motorcycle Week, and many have made it their tradition to spend it at The NASWA throughout the years. Our Resort is the perfect home base for catching all the events and action throughout the week since you can ride (or walk) down to the Weirs right from our Resort, but don’t miss the daily events at The NASWA, either! There is no cover charge for the live music on the beach at the NazBar & Grill and Late Night at the Blue Bar! Staying with us is the best way to get the most out of your Bike Week experience.
