Bringing Families Together

April 2006 News

Houseboating, an old vacation idea, popular with many families in the '60s, has since been revised into a great getaway to reconnect with family and enjoy a relaxing, stress free vacation. Now there's one vacation that will please children, looking for fun-filled days, and their parents who seek a restful getaway. Houseboating brings families together in a unique, bonding experience.

Forever Resorts (, the respected leader in houseboat vacation rentals, has modernized the houseboat of today to include many comforts you'd expect to find in a vacation home; TV, stereo, gas grill, full kitchen, queen bedrooms, bathrooms, linens, towels and central air conditioning and heat. Plus, one feature not usually found in vacation homes - a waterslide off the upper deck!

The experience of houseboating goes beyond just the boat. It has become a tradition with many, which weaves the commonplace vacation into vivid memories. From exploring the serenity of the lake to the excitement of playing captain of your own boat, a houseboat vacation provides an outdoor adventure that allows you to reconnect, relax and spend quality time with each other.

When Forever Resorts asked recent vacationers their favorite part about houseboating, the company received many answers. But one commonality rang true; families revealed houseboating is truly a magical experience and they plan on returning to have that vacation experience again and again.

Houseboat rentals can be found in many waterways of the United States. Lake Mead National Recreation Area in Nevada and Don Pedro Lake in California are two popular destinations for houseboating.
