You'll find plenty of Southern stereotypes alive and well when it comes to weekends at the lake around these parts. We love our iced tea, preferably a little sweet and sipped on the dock. We spend full days barefoot unless dinner calls for flip-flops, and we happily live life at a slower pace. Here, a look at some of our favorite supersized swimming holes around the region. Whether you crave the speed of water sports, prefer the solitude of a mountain lake, or count down the moments to the daily floating hour, you'll find a place to dive right into some of summer's greatest pleasures.
