The Colorado river/ lake Tahoe/Shasta are great with a rented pontoon
That's not a pontoon, that's a freekin' house boat and yes they are nice. I can't remember where we were, somewhere out west, but there were about a dozen of those things on the water. They would all tie up together out in the middle of the lake at night and then it was party central. There was some wild shit going on out there.
