12 Houseboats We’d Like to Sail Away On

Our ears are still buzzing from last night’s fireworks spectacular, and we can’t help but feel a little sentimental about our great nation’s reverence for picnics, parades and Ball Park® Franks all in the name of hard-earned freedom and independence. Nothing says freedom like a floating, seafaring lifestyle, so in honor of the ten best things ever added to the United States Constitution, we’ve rounded up houseboats for every style. Whether you’re a diehard modern minimalist or a bohemian thrift store bargain hunter, click through to find your ticket to free living. Then, let us know in the comments what you’d want in a houseboat.
