In a world where people seem to become increasingly innovative, fueled by a need to relax and party at the same time, your newest summer gotta-do-it activity is here.

Lake Winnipesaukee in Laconia, New Hampshire has been hiding the wildest water activity we’ve seen yet: a floating, BYOB tiki hut boat that holds up to 10 of your best pals.

Now, these octagonal tiki huts are exactly what you are thinking they are, complete with island-style bar in the middle and a thatch roof overhead. There’s a small railing that goes the entire way around the hut with some nautical rope railing to keep your sight line pretty wide open.

You can choose the express cruise and float around for 90 minutes or charter the hut for a little bit longer and drift away for two hours. Plus, thanks to modern technology, each tiki hut is equipped with Bluetooth speakers so you can be "Jammin’" with your friends, or sing to your spouse "Don’t Rock My Boat."

You can hop off the hut and bob around in the lake with your friends, and if you’re lucky, catch a bit of good vibes during Reggae Night and have the most vacation-y feeling stay-cation ever.

And if you have zero idea how to drive a boat – or a floating hut, which is likely a new experience for even experienced boaters – have no fear. Your floating tiki hut comes with a captain who’ll take charge of that big old pirate ship-looking wheel so all you and the gang have to worry about is having fun and not falling off.

It might be the most fun you can have at four miles per hour and we hope someone reading this brings the idea down our way, soon.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
