They say that a life by the lake is a life well spent. As the water glimmers in the mid-afternoon sunlight, you can't help but enjoy the quintessential summertime vibe. Speaking of summer, the warmer season is the perfect time to discover these five fun ways to enjoy the lake this summer.
Have a Picnic
You're not ringing in the summertime if you don’t have at least one picnic outing. Pack a basket with the classic picnic meal of cold-cut sandwiches, your favorite chips, and beverages, or create your menu to add an element of surprise! End your meal by floating out on the lake and enjoying the views.
Make It a Kayak Occasion
Kayaks offer a less intense water navigating experience than boats and don't require a license to operate. Kayaks are small, so you can expect to be the sole occupant of your vessel. Remember to bring your camera so you can take extraordinary action shots!
Enjoy the View on Your Boat
You can increase the fun by inviting your family and friends to a special day of boating! Enjoy music on the aquamarine water while discovering an entirely different yet calming version of your world.
Bask in the Sunlight
Imagine setting up an inflatable dock and testing the waters with a relaxing afternoon lakeside nap underneath the sun’s warm rays. Sunbathing is an attractive option for days when the water is too cold to enjoy. Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen to protect your skin from sunburn.
Having a Fishing “Staycation”
Fishing outings are perfect opportunities to bond with family and friends and enjoy the mesmerizing scenery of a new waterway. You can experience the thrill of a first catch, fish for food, or sport.
No matter the intention of your fishing staycation, remember to consult local laws to ensure fishing is legal in your area.
