Ever tried a lake vacation? A lake vacation can give you the ideal blend of active participation and easy-going relaxation. Through home rental sites, you can find charming places to stay with gorgeous views of lakes, rolling hills, and mountains in the distance. And there’s so much to do on a lake vacation!
To start, make sure you’ve got the right swimwear and cover ups, so that you’re ready to dive right into vacation mode. For lounging in the sun, try our line of eye-catching bikinis, featuring high-waisted cuts, mesh necklines, and cute front ties.
When you’re ready for water sports, go for a timeless one piece or a mix and match tankini. Tankinis and one pieces give you the coverage and support you need for water sports. Put on a pair of sporty board shorts, and you’re all set for jet skiing, tow tubing, and more!
If you’re looking for plus-sized women’s swimwear, you will find a wide selection of choices to flatter your curves and boost your confidence. And don’t forget a cover up to complete your look.
Once you’ve got the right swimwear, be sure to try these top six “must-do’s” that will make your lake vacation simply fabulous:
1. Water sports
Most lake resorts feature rental shops for water sports. If you prefer the gentler water sports, go for paddle boarding or kayaking. You’ll love the calming pace and the chance to see the natural scenery around you.
If you’re more of an extreme sports enthusiast, you can try water skiing, wake boarding, or wake surfing. Tow tubing is popular too—there’s nothing like the thrill of being towed behind a motorboat in an inner tube! You’ll look incredible in your one piece and board shorts as you’re skimming along the surface of the water.
For a day out of the water, try exploring the hiking trails around the lake area. Swim tees are the perfect versatile shirt to wear for a day on the trails. You’ll love the way a swim tee looks and feels as you discover the stunning views of the lake, trees, and hills. Don’t forget to pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it. You may even catch a beautiful sunset!
Outdoor cooking is at its finest when you have a lake view. Some lakeside properties and campgrounds allow firepits where you can roast hot dogs or make the always-popular (and tasty) s’mores. Enjoy the sights and sounds along the lake as you dig into a delicious meal outside.
4. Outdoor music
If your lakeside vacation is near a lively community, you may be able to find outdoor concerts in the area. Look online or in local community centers for summer performance schedules. If you’re looking for a casual lakeside style, a cover up dress can double as an evening sundress for your night out. Be sure to pack a blanket and a picnic basket, and you’re all set for a lovely evening of music and fun.
5. An afternoon at the spa
Ready to pamper yourself? With just a little internet searching, you may be able to find a spa near you. There’s nothing that says vacation more than a hot-stone massage, a mani-pedi, or a facial. Go ahead, treat yourself!
6. A day on the lake’s beach
Save at least one day of your lakeside vacation for unwinding by the lake’s edge. Most lakes have a beach with lifeguards and a swimming area. Bring a book, sunscreen, and your favorite bikini or tankini, and just let go. A day of pure relaxation may be just what the doctor ordered.
Lake vacations offer tremendous opportunities for fun, sport, and relaxation, whether you love to swim, boat, or hike. We hope yours is the vacation of a lifetime!
