Summer is here and people are turning to boating as their choice for fun recreation in record numbers! Nearly 37% of Americans enjoyed boating in 2013, with more expected this Summer. Why? It’s fun! Boating is a great way to get the entire family outdoors to appreciate nature, disconnect from technology, and enjoy quality time with your family!
I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I’m excited to announce that I am an Ambassador for Discover Boating for the second year in a row. When my family gets out on the water, we are a million miles from the ordinary life of Akron, Ohio. Whether we are on the Cuyahoga River, Portage Lakes or the ocean, boating seems to transport my family to another world.
It is an enjoyable time we get to spend together discovering amazing things that we could never discover on dry land. We plan to take a boat trip while on vacation this Summer to search for dolphins and ride the ocean waves.
We’ll also be headed up to our favorite local spot of Put-n-Bay later this Summer to enjoy Lake Erie with the ferry ride over and recreational boating while we are there. We can’t wait!
Boating is a huge highlight of every Summer for us.
Boating is inspiring too.Just ask country music star, Jake Owen. He is known for his chart-topping music as well as his love for life on the water. He lives and loves the boating lifestyle and includes that passion into his music.
