Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to escape on a romantic getaway with your sweetheart. We might be a little biased, but at Forever Houseboats, we believe there’s nowhere quite as ideal for romance as a houseboat on one of these three scenic lakes in the American southwest.
Lake Powell | Antelope Point Marina
With nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline, Lake Powell is one of the largest man-made lakes in the United States. Located within the 1.25 million acres of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Lake Powell is surrounded by some of the most stunning geological formations of the Colorado Plateau. The striking red sandstone cliffs and the deep blues and purples of the sparkling lake water create magnificent sunsets every night. There’s nothing much more romantic than watching the sun dip beyond the horizon from the hot tub on the top deck of one of our 70 or 75-foot houseboat models, available at Lake Powell’s Antelope Point Marina.
Lake Mead | Callville Bay Marina
With four distinct basins and an irregular shoreline, Lake Mead feels more like a collection of smaller lakes than a single reservoir. As a result, it’s easy to feel as though you and your Valentine have the entire place to yourself. Departing from Lake Mead’s Callville Bay Marina, you can explore the lake’s abundant coves or take advantage of the lake’s acclaimed striped bass with a day of fishing. Couples that love to scuba dive will love the clear water and plentiful dive sites that Lake Mead has to offer.
Lake Mohave | Cottonwood Cove Marina
A bit further south of Lake Mead, Cottonwood Cove Marina is the gateway to Lake Mohave, a hidden gem flanked on either side by steep, sheer canyon walls. Black Canyon, perhaps the most well-known of Mohave’s canyons is home to naturally occurring hot springs. The picturesque Black Canyon Water Trail has recently been designated a National Water Trail and offers stunning kayaking and canoeing opportunities year-round.
This Valentine’s Day, why not take a romantic getaway where you can leave the world behind on the shore and float away together? At Forever Houseboats, we offer houseboat rentals on some of the nation’s most romantic waterways. And whether you choose Lake Powell, Lake Mead, and Lake Mohave, you and your special someone will surely fall in love with all that houseboating has to offer.
