I have never enjoyed sun as much as I did during my lake Chelan visit. When you have a cool bunch of friends, everything is just awesome. Despite that lake Chelan is awesome! It’s good for all the ages and all groups of people – may it be family with kids, newly wed couple, friends, grandparents company or whatever. I think lake Chelan is for everybody.
Our visit to lake Chelan was pretty much spontaneous. We were thinking of where to go because my sun obsessed friends wanted to avoid the cloudy weather of Seattle during the long labor weekend holiday.
We booked a motel room 12 hours before starting for the place. You don’t need to book the hotel for the whole day as you will be spending time out on the beach, parks, etc. and you can keep the stuff in your car. There are options to stay in your own tent in parks and I would have done that if we had a tent.
It took us about 3 hours to drive the beautiful road towards the eastern Washington from Seattle. The drive is equally a pleasant journey. Carry water, fruits, and other snacks that you like to eat during the journey.
The weather was amazing. With a nutrogena sunscreen of 70 SPF, we were all protected from the sun. We straight away headed to a park which was accompanied by a beach where a friend paddle boarded, we rafted using our own raft tube and swam in the lake. One positive trait about one of my friends is that he is very outgoing he managed to inflate the raft tube almost everywhere we needed. It’s a family beach but you can still have your own good time.
Jet ski was another main fun stuff we did. The jet ski rent on weekdays are cheaper than weekends, obviously. You must book jet ski as soon as you arrive if you plan to do it during your vacation because the jet skis get booked pretty fast.
