There are few activities better to do in the summer than boating. Whether you enjoy spending the day lounging on a pontoon boat or renting a boat for a little weekend fun, it’s fun to spend time relaxing on the water. While there are great places here in the Commonwealth of Kentucky to go boating, there are a number of spots worth checking out on the East Coast as well.
Below, we’ve shared a list of favorites recently featured in Boating Magazine. Have fun!
Braun Bay, Lake Winnipesaukee, NH: Featuring a sand bar and shallow waters, this spot is a great place to hang out, swim, paddle board, or raft. Great for families or those looking to party.
World’s End, Hingham, MA: Located near Boston Harbor, this destination features a beautiful protected cover which is a great place to barbeque, lay out in the sun, and spend the day relaxing.
Cold Spring Harbor, NY: This spot, on the north shore of Long Island, has protected waters and is a perfect place to picnic, go tubing, or stay overnight. Be sure to check out Sand Hole and explore “the sandy shoals and calm waters.”
Morris Island, SC: Near downtown Charleston, this destination has two beaches that can only be reached by boat. Offering great views of Fort Sumter, Morris Island is a bit of a party beach on the weekends but offers a family-friendly strip of beach in the inlet on its other side.
