The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism forecasts the state will see 650,000 out-of-state visitors this Memorial Day weekend.
John Howard works on the Winnipesaukee Belle. He expects his lake cruises to be packed, as long as the weather cooperates.
"It's very weather-driven, so if the weather holds out, we'll have a great weekend,” Howard said. “If it gets cold and rainy, then we won't."
State tourism officials say they expect more than $120 million in spending in the state Friday through Monday with a projected $1.8 billion spent during the summer as a whole.
