7 Swimming Spots With The Clearest, Most Pristine Water In Arizona

Swimming in local lakes, hiking in the mountains, getting a nice, crispy burn because you forgot sunscreen; these are all activities that Arizonans get to experience at least a month longer than our friends in other parts of the country.
With that in mind, we’re going to take a look at some spots around the state that feature lovely, crystal clear water that is perfect for a mid-day swim from now through early October.
