Fall is the perfect time of year in Arizona to go on a dreamy outdoor adventure. Great weather calls for a fun-filled day of paddleboarding and kayaking! This fall you can go kayaking in Arizona on this massive lake.

Located in Page, Arizona, Lake Powell is part of the Colorado River and it lies in both Arizona and Utah. It's also the largest manmade lake in Northen America, according to the National Park Service. You and your friends can go on a spontaneous day trip to this lake and spend a day filled with kayaking or paddleboarding. 

You can rent kayaks and paddleboards at the Lake Powell Paddleboards and Kayaks company. Kayak rentals are $35 per day while paddleboard rentals are $45 per day. Your rental for a paddleboard will include a paddle, leash, life jacket, and car racks for transporting. Bring your furry friends along with you! If you call ahead the shop can make sure there's a paddleboard with a full deck pad for them! 

You and your friends or S/O can escape the city and have a fun-filled day surrounded by nature. Your kayaking or paddleboarding adventure can be spent cruising around Horseshoe Bend. 

If you decide to venture around Horseshoe Bend you'll need to take Lee's Ferry down to the dam. From there you can paddleboard or kayak on the 16-mile river. You should make reservations for the ferry ahead of your trip. The river is very cold so try not to fall in! 

During the fall, water sports here are very popular so you should make a reservation here ahead of time. 

When you're done with your Horseshoe Bend adventure you and your friends can go swimming in Lake Powell. There are no designated beaches or lifeguards, so plan accordingly. 

If you want to see some fall colors you should go on this vintage train ride through Verde Canyon.
