The United States of America is home to some of the most beautiful lakes in the world. If you are looking for a serene and peaceful getaway, these lakes are worth the visit. Here is a list of some of the striking lakes to visit in the United States for your next holiday.

Lake Michigan, Michigan

The United States and Canada have some of the biggest interconnected freshwater lakes. The Great Lakes of North America is a group of five lakes that have almost 21 per cent of the world’s freshwater. It is located near the border with Canada and the St. Lawrence River gets all of the lakes to connect to the Atlantic Ocean. Lake Michigan is the third largest of the Great Lakes. However, it is the only one of the lakes that do not touch Canada. Meanwhile, the city of Chicago is a major city on Lake Michigan.

Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada

Lake Tahoe, which sits between California and Nevada, is one of the most gorgeous lakes and good for reasons. It is surrounded by the snowcapped mountains of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is reportedly the largest alpine lake in North America. The water is extremely clear. During the summer, people from all over come to enjoy the area and sunbathing. However, the water stays cold throughout the year. In winter, you can enjoy panoramic lake views or try skiing. There are also some cool hiking trails to explore.

Lake Powell, Arizona and Utah

Lake Powel is the second-largest reservoir in the United States. Lake Powell can be found on the Utah and Arizona border. You can also check out crimson sandstone cliffs dropping into its beautiful waters. You could also have fun paddleboarding or kayaking. This is a popular spot for a houseboat vacation you could enjoy with family or friends.

Crater Lake, Oregon

Crater Lake, which is in Oregon, is said to be the country’s deepest lake. The depth of the lake is reportedly 1,943-feet and is due to a volcanic eruption that occurred almost 8,000 years ago. Some experts claim its waters are relatively clean because it is not fed by any streams or rivers. Visibility is up to 100 feet as it is quite clear. While you are there, you can ride a boat to Wizard Island, hike up Garfield Peak, or watch a beautiful sunrise over Crater Lake.
