Best Stand-up Paddleboarding Spot — Best of Vail Valley 2019

1. Nottingham Lake

2. Colorado River

3. Rancho Del Rio

Who says there aren’t any beaches in Colorado? Nottingham Lake in Avon is a hubbub of beach activity all summer long. The stand-up paddleboarding, with million-dollar views of Beaver Creek, feels like an oasis hidden in plain sight. Rentals, from small to extended party size, are available if you want to test the proverbial waters. Get the entire family on one board for loads of laughter — and although swimming is only permitted at the swim beach, a genuine fall into the water can be surprisingly refreshing. Rentals are available for stand-up paddleboarding from Memorial Day through Labor Day, so get your land-loving feet acquainted with a board and enjoy a day in the sun.
