A Day at Lake Lure


Spending a Day on the Lake: Lake Lure Summer Activities
Lake Lure is one of our favorite places to relax and unwind on a late spring/summer day! There is just so much to do, so much fun to be had, that we honestly look forward to it all winter long. Now that the season is finally upon us, we want to share the joy of Lake Lure with all those traveling to the area this summer. Read on for an introduction to some of our favorite ways to spend a day on the Lake!
 
Relax by the Water
The beach at Lake Lure is the perfect place to bring the little ones on those hot summer days. The water is refreshing, the sand is clean and perfect for building castles, and there is a playground not far from the waters edge. Chairs can be rented or brought, and we absolutely love zoning out in the sun to a great book!
 
Paddle Away
There are several boat rental companies in the area, strategically located around the perimeter of the lake. We love to switch it up between paddleboards, kayaks, and paddleboats. Paddling the lake is such an amazing family activity, and the landscape is absolutely breathtaking. Be sure to pack a lunch - the perfect picnic location is always just around the corner!
 
Grab a Bite
At the end of a long day of adventure, sometimes the best way to treat yourself is to find a patio and have one of the local culinary wizards make a mouth watering meal for you. There are dozens of fantastic restaurants in Lake Lure; we recommend finding one with a good western view - enjoy the sunset, sip a glass of wine, and enjoy a Western North Carolina summer evening!
