6 Fall Boating Getaways You Need to Take This Year
When it comes to boating getaways, most people immediately think of summertime destinations like the Caribbean. Fall is seen by many as a time to start winterizing their boat and putting it away for the next year. While that’s understandable, it does mean that you will miss out on some of the most amazing end-of-season fun. We’ve compiled a list of the six best fall boating getaways to take this year that will allow you to enjoy the last of the lingering warmth, coupled with the vibrant colors of changing leaves. Best way to explore? With Boatsetter, of course!
Boasting over 1,600 miles of shoreline and thousands of miles of open water to explore, Lake Michigan offers an incredible wealth of things to explore and enjoy this fall. Get up close and personal with some of the inlets and islands to watch the changing leaves, or tie up at a dock to get some on-shore enjoyment in places like Traverse City.
Saranac Lake, New York
If you really want to enjoy the changing leaves, head to Saranac Lake, in New York state. You’ll find plenty of camping around, but also some hotel options. Spend your day exploring the water, or head to Tucker Farms, where you can sample some of the locally grown produce as the year winds to a close.
Fish Creek, Wisconsin
Fish Creek sits on a peninsula that offers some of the best leaf watching in America. It’s also a resort town, so there are plenty of tourist destinations and attractions throughout the year, from activities to eateries. It’s also right on Lake Michigan, so you can explore all the other areas this massive lake abuts.
Lake Placid, New York
Looking for a great place to fish while enjoying the changing colors of fall? Lake Placid in New York is a great choice. Trout is the catch of choice in these waters, and you can cook up your dinner yourself quite easily. Of course, there are plenty of restaurants around, and even wine tasting options if you want.
Lake Tahoe, California
Few lakes compare to the azure beauty of Lake Tahoe. Whether you’re exploring the California side or the Nevada side, you’ll enjoy the pristine glory of the snow-capped, Sierra Nevada Mountains, beautiful pines, and crisp fall air. Head over to Emerald Cove for a bit of enjoyment, or boat out to the center of this incredibly deep lake to enjoy some R&R. Make time to visit Southlake, where you can gamble the night away (only on the Nevada side), as well.
Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
Covering more than 60,000 acres, Lake of the Ozarks offers access to excellent bass fishing, but also a wealth of areas to explore and enjoy. Watch the changing leaves and migrating birds, enjoy any number of watersports, or get on land to enjoy hiking, biking, and even golf if that’s your thing.
As you can see, there’s no reason to put the boat away just yet. Get out and enjoy these amazing fall destinations first.
