Summertime is here! And while the 4th of July may be behind us there are still many weekends left to get out on the lake and enjoy some fun in the sun. Whether you like skiing or wakeboarding, tubing, floating, or just enjoying a cold beverage taking out the boat is the prime summer activity. But what if you don’t have a boat or a friend with a boat? Never fear you can rent one! There are several places to rent boats on South Carolina’s Lake Wylie.

Lake Wylie is just a short drive south of the Charlotte area and borders places such as Belmont, Lake Wylie/Clover, and Tega Cay. While it may not get talked about as much as Lake Norman it can be just as fun! I spent 13 summers on Lake Wylie at a camp and it will always have a special place in my heart. And you don’t have to tackle 77 traffic to get there. Always a plus!

Keep in mind many rental places require at least one person to have a North Carolina boating license. To receive one you have to take an approved boating education course. So if you are planning on renting make sure you inquire about the rental company’s policy.
