Remember spending summer days at the lake, playing in the water and barbecuing on the beach? Remember stepping away from busy schedules to enjoy the outdoors and connect with our favourite people? Remember when our eyes were glued to scenery rather than screens, and we paid more attention to each other than our phones?
Those were the days.
The good news is that these kind of days are, of course, still attainable. All it takes is a little enthusiasm and planning, since we all know life can get hectic sometimes — all the more reason to make time for the things that really matter.
This summer, it’s time to rediscover what it means to get away, create memories together and spend your days however you please.
And the perfect way to do just that? Houseboating.
That’s right — hear us out! Houseboating is a unique kind of trip that forces you to slow down and appreciate the moment, without losing a sense of adventure. It’s a vacation that appeals equally to a group of friends looking to live it up on the lake, and a family gathering with people of all ages.
Relax and soak up the sun, play watersports, and if you find yourself missing dry land, simply beach your vessel and scout out a secluded beach or nearby town. Houseboating is like having your own floating, luxury accommodation that you can also use to explore the surrounding areas. One thing’s for sure — boredom is never a concern! Luckily, the houseboating capital of Canada is just a hop, skip and a jump away — the beautiful Shuswap.
A houseboat is the best way to check several of these activities off your list in a single vacation, although you may have to plan a return trip to try them all! Enjoy the journey just as much as the destination by cruising the lake and spending time with your favourite people.
Are you fantasizing about sunny days on the Shuswap yet? If houseboating on the Shuswap sounds like the vacation for you, but you’re not sure where to start, try Waterway Houseboats. They have the largest selection on the Shuswap, and their Cruise Director feature makes it especially easy to plan. They also have a loyalty program, referral program, and Activity Centre with lots of fun rentals.
Whether you want to give your kids the same fun experiences that you had growing up, create new memories with your closest friends, or plan something unique for your annual vacation, houseboating has you covered.
Get ready to unplug, unwind, and dive in.
