This One Destination Has The Absolute Bluest Water In Nebraska
Although we have miles and miles of rivers and hundreds – maybe thousands if you count all of those little ones in the Sandhills – of lakes, Nebraska isn’t exactly known for having rich blue water. It’s not that our water isn’t clean and beautiful, but in general, you can expect it to have a slight brown coloration. All except for a few places…and this one is king.
Lake Mac might be the most popular, but we know there are other bodies of water out there with beautiful blue water. What’s your favorite? Tell us about it in the comments! Meanwhile, here are some of the best places to swim in Nebraska with clear, clean water – just be sure to get out there before summer slips away.
