What are some more beautiful lakes in the mountains?
We have quite a few alpine lakes in the western half of the country. Nevada even has an Alpine Lakes Loop Trail within Great Basin National Park. This 2.7-mile easy trail will take you past two gorgeous lakes — Stella Lake and Teresa Lake.
What are some of the largest lakes in the United States?
Obviously, the Great Lakes are pretty, well, great. You also don’t want to miss Lake George: it’s known as the Queen of the American Lakes and also has a pretty great town nearby that shares its name.
What are some underrated U.S. lakes that everyone should visit?
We’ve actually got a whole list of lakes that are so great they’ll make you forget about the coast! Places like New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee are so beautiful that they’ll make you realize there’s really no need to go to the ocean to see a beautiful shoreline.
