If you love the idea of being able to go boating when you want but don’t want the hassle of owning your own boat, this is the solution. Carefree Boat Club offers a full fleet of boats from which to choose, personal training if you need to brush up on your captain skills, and concierge service that will have your selected boat clean and ready for you upon arrival. The fleet includes crownlines, sailboats, pontoons, center console fishing, kayaks, and even paddleboards. The boat club is less than 20 minutes away and has easy on-street parking. You bring your cooler, beach bag, floats, and tube. When you get there, the boat you selected (through the easy-to-use app) is clean and ready to go for you!
During the season we love going on the lake and cruising along the shoreline up to Port Washington. Seeing the beaches and parks from the lake gives you a great appreciation for the natural beauty in our area. If you’ve never seen Milwaukee from the river point of view, you’re missing out. There are little nooks and crannies that weave around the city and some parts remind me of Europe, complete with crooked century-old buildings. Check out Barnacle Bud’s on the Kinnickinnic River where you can dock for some seafood and a cold one or Lakefront Brewery (they do dockside).
