Read an interesting article on weather.com. Now normally I think of weather.com as a website that shows crazy click-bait videos and links, and only secondarily a site about actual WEATHER, so naturally we’re here for a third, completely different topic 😛
Anyways, this article is about the Best Swimming spot in every state. From the Devil’s Punchbowl in Colorado, to Dick’s Creek in Georgia, and from Walden Pond in Massachusetts to Lake Monona in Wisconsin, there are some great swimming spots out there!
Naturally whenever I see lists like this, I wonder how many I’ve been to! I’ve been to the following:
- Nevada: Lake Tahoe – we went there as part of the trip where we used 170,000 Rapid Rewards points to take a family vacation to Nevada. The article specifically mentions Sand Harbor, though we were at Kings Beach on the northern part of the lake.
- Rhode Island: Newport.
- Lake Superior – it’s on the list for Minnesota, while I swam in it in Michigan as part of Dive in All Five – my trip to jump in all five Great Lakes in one day (time to cross it off my travel bucket list!)
Here’s the video for our Dive in All Five trip including Lake Superior aka Gitchegummee
I’ve also been to Bear Lake (Utah) but not in it and I’ve been to Lake Erie (Ohio) but not specifically to Catawba Island, so I didn’t count them.
So what about you? How many of the best swimming spots have you been to? Let me know in the comments.
