Enjoy A Escape At Lake Meredith On A Forever Houseboat

    When searching for a outdoor fun there are many choices in Texas. Among these destinations is Lake Meredith National Recreation Area, where we discovered we could rent a cozy Houseboat. This was wonderful for a romantic getaway with the beautiful sunsets, and serene surroundings. The Forever Houseboats offers plenty of destinations for the ideal getaway - not just in Texas - and that's great for planning other trips. It’s wonderful to stay in a houseboat because you can enjoy all the comforts of home on a beautiful lake, and you can also take a trip into town and explore the sites.

    We’ve heard the experience described as floating high-end hotel, and it’s true. Forever Houseboats have multiple queen beds, fully equipped kitchens, showers, DVD/Satellite TV Entertainment centers, and did I mention the Jacuzzi on the top deck?

    Houseboat aside, the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is a perfect getaway destination. One of the features we loved was relaxing under the starlit sky - so many stars to see because it's hidden within the plains of North Texas just outside of Amarillo. Here, you can enjoy all the lakeside fun Lake Meredith offers like water-skiing the day away behind a 20' powerboat rented from Marina.

    The Marina at Lake Meredith offers many activities to enjoy as well. Whether you go swimming, water skiing, canoeing, scuba diving or sailing; you’ll find plenty of memorable activities to share together. We cannot forget the festive lake amphitheater, Lone Star Rising, which host musical acts from mid-June and throughout the summer months.

    Among the Lake services available are Houseboat Rentals, Ski Boat and Deck Cruiser Rentals, a Heated and Cooled Fish House, Slip Rentals, and a Retail Store where you can stock up for departing on your romantic cruise. For those who enjoy fishing, Lake Meredith is the perfect place to drop a line, and holds the record in the state for Walleye, Yellow Perch and Small Mouth Bass. And, whether you want to plan a quick weekend trip or stay for a week at Lake Meredith, there's plenty to enjoy year-round!
