Parties on land: Been there, yawned at that.
Parties on water: Refreshing. Relaxing. Bikini dress code.
Time to take advantage of this crazy great weather and head out to Lake Grapevine to go aboard a party boat from WaterWay Adventures. They've got a fleet of DJ- and limbo-ready boats with room for scads of H2O-lovin' friends. And for your beer buddies, you can B.Y.O. coolers or kegs, if you've got some strong friends to hoist them onboard.
The 60-passenger Party Barge Deluxe is a double-decker open-air boat with an attached slide and plenty of room to spread out. The indoor/outdoor bi-level Tejas Charter Boat has room for a full 100 guests ready for an even more luxe lake experience.
As an added bonus, rent either (or any of their ski boats, pontoons, and jet skis) on a Friday night and bask in the pyrotechnic glow of the Grapevine fireworks through Labor Day.
But there's only a finite number of summer days left to enjoy.
So don't miss the boat.
