The view from the Lakeshore Restaurant, which overlooks Saguaro Lake, is lovely.
Sit on the patio on the warmer days to take in the sights as you dine. Warning: You’ll notice lots of hungry birds.
If you’d like to see more, consider a Desert Belle boat cruise. Last year I found a Deal Chicken offer for two for about $24 including one drink per person. It’s a leisurely way to spend an afternoon. The boat approaches the lake’s towering cliffs for incredible views, and we even spotted an eagle perched overhead.
