Bear Lake in September | An Itinerary

Bear Lake in September | An Itinerary

A September trip to Bear Lake is a beautiful way to end your summer. It’s less crowded, and most, if not all of the fun summer offerings remain. You get to experience the elusive pairing of warmer temperatures in the day and the novelty of wearing a hoodie or coat at night. And one of the most irresistible draws is the leaves starting to change color. All this and more set the stage for a highly rewarding Bear Lake getaway.

After leisurely pulling into Bear Lake around 2 pm, head straight to Performance Rentals, pick out a WaveRunner or two, and take advantage of the smaller crowds for a thrilling day on the water and relaxing on the sand.
