Things to do

Lake pursuits near New River

Half an hour west of your New River vacation rental, the serene Lake Pleasant has boating ramps where you can launch small craft for a day on the water. The lake is known for its bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish, and you can head to the Scorpion Bay marina to rent a fishing boat, ski-boat or kayak for the day. The park also has a number of short but attractive lakeside trails to meander along. Off-roading is another popular way to experience the desert landscapes. Meanwhile, to the north, Prescott bursts with historic buildings, local history museums and turn-of-the-century saloons along the city's famous Whiskey Row.

To the south, the upscales shops, restaurants and spas of Scottsdale are less than an hour away. Neighboring Glendale is known for its college vibe, great antique shops and sporting events. Or head into the state capital of Phoenix for more shopping and dining options, world-class theater performances and family-friendly attractions, such as the Desert Botanical Garden.

Like the rest of Arizona, New River is warm and dry year-round. Nights can be cold but, even in winter, high temperatures can reach into the high 60s and low 70s. By summer, those highs are tipping 100. On these scorching, sunny summer days, you can head to the lakeside at Lake Pleasant Park to rent a tube or raft for the day and lazily cool down on the water. This is the season when renting a New River vacation rental with its own private pool is a truly welcome treat – blissing out in your back yard is just the thing on hazy summer days.
