Summer in Wisconsin, More than a Day at the Beach

Wherever you are in Wisconsin, chances are you’re a stone’s throw from a lake or river. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing quite like swimming and sailing, or enjoying some cool shade and waves on the beach. So pack a picnic and a good book – and don’t forget sunblock. Here are a few ideas for a fun, safe and relaxing day by the water.

Ship to Shore

Looking for an adventure off-land? There are many Wisconsin boat rental options to choose from.

Located on the Wisconsin River in the Lower Dells, River’s Edge Resort rents aluminum boats, canoes and kayaks, with rates available by the hour, day, or week. Stop at one of several area beaches for a picnic, take a dip, or just enjoy the sun from the shore.

Setting Sail

The sights are nice on the ground, but they’re even better from above. Book a parasailing tour in Door County and feel the wind in your hair (and toes).

If you prefer to stay on land, why not pick up a high-flying kite? Stop by Unique Flying Objects in Two Rivers, or buy a kite at Fish Creek Kite Company before heading for Fish Creek Harbor.

 Stay Awhile

Maybe you’re planning to beach it for a full weekend. We have a listing of Wisconsin beaches and resorts that can help you get there.

Where there’s water, there are great options for fun and relaxation. Throw on a swimsuit and go own the weekend!
