Taking the free bus around the lake to visit your favorite Summit County restaurants and bars seems convenient but it doesn’t sound too fun. A water taxi ride across the lake at 9,017 feet though? Now that seems like a more appealing way to travel…especially if you plan on drinking! Family dinners, friendly gatherings, and bar hopping between Frisco and Dillon has never been so stylish! The taxi runs all week over the summer (weather permitting) so come join in on the fun. Pick a sunny day, find some friends and plan a day around the lake. The Water Taxi offers both one way and round trips to cater to all types of plans and activities. Check prices with the link above!
The two most popular destinations for the water taxi are Dillon’s Tiki Bar and Grill and Frisco’s Island Grill . These two destinations bring together a beach type atmosphere with gorgeous mountain views, making it a perfect place to enjoy food and drinks on the lake. If you were looking to explore a little farther from the lake both drop off points give you great access to Frisco and Dillon’s main streets. From there you will have access to all of Frisco and Dillon’s shops and eateries.
If you get too used to the convenience of the water taxi and don’t want to walk anywhere after getting off the pontoon boat we still have good news for you. For just an extra 3 dollars the taxi will shuttle your bike across the lake too! Not only does that allow you to get into town with ease it also opens up a plethora of biking trails in Dillon, Frisco, and neighboring towns.
Have a furry friend who wants to explore with you? The taxi will also shuttle your dog across the lake as well. After all, summit county is one of the best places around to be a dog!
So if you are in Summit County and looking to turn an average day out in the town to an unforgettable one, try the Water Taxi and enjoy the lake the way its meant to be!
