Boating season is here, time to head out to our area lakes for some summer fun. Maybe you have some friends who you can take you out on their boat or better yet what if you could rent a boat similar to the way an Airbnb works?

GetMyBoat is an app you can download to do just that, rent a boat anywhere in the U.S. But unlike renting a boat from a rental marina, the boating app allows you to rent from an individual or owner fast-tracking your chances of finding a boat a lot faster.

Not only that but if you are a boat owner in Arkansas it allows them to make money when they are not using their boat. It's a great way to make some extra money for the summer but also allows the renter some mental health benefits of being outdoors on the water.

So, whether you are looking for a ski boat, pontoon, party barge, fishing boat, canoe, or any sort of watercraft you'll be able to find it with this #1 rated app.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
