The Natural Swimming Hole At Tucker Lake In North Carolina Will Take You Back To The Good Ole Days
Summertime is synonymous with family time. For many, the memories of summer vacations taken decades ago and the lingering memories of fun-filled adventures with siblings, parents, and extended family are rekindled each summer. If you want to revisit the era before enormous (and expensive) waterparks dotted the landscape in North Carolina, then plan a day trip over to Benson (near the intersection of I-95 and I-40) for a day spent in a natural swimming hole that’ll take you back to the good old days.
