I always feel at home near the water or on the water. My preference is the ocean, but if one isn’t near, I’ll take a lake. Especially, if it is a gorgeous day and I’m with my favorite girl! If you’re looking for an inexpensive outdoor activity, and live in Maryland, visit Lake Needwood.
It’s a beautiful serene 75 acre lake where you can rent kayaks, row boats, canoes, pedal boats, or even take a tour on a Pontoon boat. We decided on the pedal boat. They provide everyone with a life jacket and at least 4 people can fit in the boat. We paid $9.50 for a half an hour and was on the lake for about an hour and a half. We paid under $20 bucks which was a great price for all the fun we had!
The first time I went to Lake Needwood I was pregnant which was 10 years ago! Now, my girl is 10 and can help pedal the boat! What better way to celebrate a glorious Sunday then hop into a pedal boat on a lake? It was a ton of fun and I totally recommend going with your kids. It was a sweet bonding experience just being out on the glistening lake, talking, laughing and pedaling.
