You Can Swim & Paddleboard On This Dreamy Emerald Lake In Arizona

We'll all float on.
Best Lakes In Arizona Are Emerald And You Can Paddleboard On Them

Paddleboarding on calm waters is so magical and it's even better on one of the best lakes in Arizona. With red rock canyon walls and gorgeous emerald water, it's like something out of a dream. Lake Powell is the ultimate floating getaway for some summertime fun. 

Paddleboarding is a super popular way to explore the water and what better area to float through than Lake Powell and Antelope Canyon? The red and orange walls rise above the emerald green water creating the most tranquil atmosphere ever. 

Nearby rentals make it super simple and fuss-free to show up and grab a paddleboard for a few hours. Rentals cost $45 per day with no hourly rate, so you can enjoy the water all day long! 

Or you can opt for a guided tour through the canyons if you have a group or prefer a more planned-out trip.

Tours range from $95 to $135 per person depending on how long your tour is. You can choose between a three-hour and five-hour option. 

Either way, you're guaranteed to fall in love with this spot and have an awesome time. 

The summer months on the lake are pristine and the shimmering water practically begs you to swim in it. And you absolutely should!

Swimming is allowed and even encouraged. Enjoy the crisp waters during your paddle to cool off from the summer heat. 

While you're in the area, you can rent a boat and go wake surfing or cruise around for the day. There are plenty of ways to enjoy some fun in the sun.  

The best time to visit is during the spring and summer. Long days, unbeatable sunsets, and refreshing water all serve to make your time on the lake truly memorable. 

Now that spring is just around the corner in Arizona, it's time to start figuring out some trips to escape the desert heat. This one looks to be just about perfect.
