Harbour / Marina
“Lake Dillon from the Frisco Marina is amazing. Simply kick back at the grill with a cocktail to drink in the sun and lake views or kick it up a notch with a boat or SUP rental! Sunrise is a favorite time to take out a kayak and sunset is a wonderful way to end a busy summer day or start your night out on the town. Check out the live music schedule and happy hour specials! The new and improved beach scene entertains the kids for hours when you want to enjoy some relax time. ”
