What to Bring on your Houseboat Vacation
We recommend you and your group create a menu. Pre-freeze your meats. You may also freeze milk and water and substitute these items for ice in the cooler. Don’t forget spices and seasoning. If you prefer purchasing your groceries when you arrive in the area, Virginia and Tower have complete grocery stores.
It’s Minnesota. Be prepared for sunny days, cool nights, and potentially even rain.
