With the global COVID-19 pandemic showing no signs of disappearing soon, many Americans are worried summer vacations will have to be put on indefinite hold.

In most states, the CDC does not recommend travel to crowded destinations. And owners of many large-scale attractions, like amusement parks, have shuttered in the interest of safety, and to avoid spreading the virus to vacationers.

But there ARE safe, family-friendly, and – most importantly – unforgettably fun options for a summer vacation this year, even amid the pandemic.

The key is to look for vacation accommodations where your loved ones can:

  • Remain secluded
  • Practice social distancing
  • Still enjoy miles of adventures and unforgettable memories along the way

A houseboat vacation is a great way to get away this summer. And here are just a few of the reasons why!

They Provide Plenty of Sheltered Family Fun

Houseboats are inherently ideal for social distancing, simply because all the fun happens onboard, and miles away from the rest of the world!

Perfect for small groups, from couples to families of eight or more, your crew will be sheltered throughout your stay. And the natural backdrop of Shasta Lake will provide plenty of distance from other vacationers.

They Are Clean, Accommodating, and Have Ample Elbow Room

  • Full kitchens
  • Bedrooms
  • Sunny and shaded decks
  • As well as plenty of privacy

They Provide Ample Time in the Great Outdoors

  • Fishing to swimming
  • Hiking
