On a Boat!

This summer, we’ve been spending a lot of time escaping the Arizona heat in Phoenix area lakes. Earlier this year, we discovered Canyon Lake and Lake Bartlett, and three weeks ago, we packed a picnic and headed to Lake Pleasant in search of an Arizona Beach.

So, when we picked “Rent a Boat” last Sunday, we had a pretty good idea of where to go. As the largest lake in the Phoenix area, Lake Pleasant has a good sized marina with boats of all sizes available to rent. We picked a Sport Boat with room for 8, and made it a family outing with our niece, nephew, Chris’ brother, and his wife. We definitely recommend bringing a small crowd, since the boat rentals can be pricey.

Beyond the boat, you can also rent tubes, wake boards, water skis, and dolphin jetpacks. Just kidding on that last one, but Lake Pleasant rental shops – please take note. The lake was much quieter in the morning, so if you opt for a half day rental, take the morning shift. Tubing, swimming, and taking turns at the wheel – we could get used to this!
