Nice place to visit. We took a couple tours of the river and highly recommend it. We first took a pontoon tour and then we took a rubba boat tour.

Stop and see this Lake!! It is worth the side trip to visit this city. Lovely scenes by the lake. Great park for dogs, and for walking along the river walk.

Just saw the lighted boat parade on the river by the English Channel. Over 65 boats floated by all decked out in their holiday splendor. Awesome!!!

Really impressed by this lake and the scenery. You can walk to the beach , stare at it from the London Bridge but the best way is to cruise ..they offer many different cruises and well worth it.

Nicely kept shores and a lot of activities. Gorgeous sunsets! Locals say they wouldn't swim in it though, makes me wonder if the water is polluted.

If you want some water in AZ, this is the place to stay. The city is not a retirement community. It has alot of different things to do. Anyone who comes here can find something they like! A very pretty area.

Yes you can rent them. They have a ton of places renting them. Check it on the internet. You can have great savings and rent them for the whole day if it's not during the weekend.
