Lake Powell is a great location for a relaxed and lighthearted vacation year-round. Locals and tourists go there for the many boating, tubing and wakeboarding opportunities. The reservoir is not far from Las Vegas and Phoenix. You can enjoy two inexpensive expeditions during one holiday trip. Some houseboating specials for two include staying at Lake Powell Resort for $299 for two nights, including breakfast and lunch. You can also go fishing, hiking, golfing, jet skiing, and camping.
