Sometimes you just need to disconnect and get outside. And when that's the case, a lake vacation is never a bad idea. While it's hard to get an exact number, the US has between three and four million lakes across the country, ranging from duck ponds to awe-inspiring wonders like Oregon's Crater Lake. No matter the season and no matter where you live, you are sure to find a fantastic lake getaway near you. Lake Tahoe is popular for winter sports, Wisconsin's Lake Winnebago is perfect for windsurfing in the fall, and Lake Austin in Texas is the perfect summer chill-out spot. Beach vacations, romantic getaways, family trips—the lake is the ideal spot for whatever kind of trip you're planning.
