Best for Desert Houseboating: From the original Planet of the Apes to Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, more than three dozen movies have been filmed in and around drop-dead-gorgeous Lake Powell. Spin your own high-adventure tale on a houseboat cruise through the red-rock desert wilderness. Created by Glen Canyon Dam in northern Arizona, the vast lake stretches for nearly 200 miles into uninhabited southern Utah and includes more than 80 side canyons where yours will often be the only boat. 

Stay: Bullfrog Marina Houseboats
