Beaches & Lakes

A splash in the ocean, a swim in the lake...whether it's the Atlantic or Pacific shore, Lake Michigan or Lake Tahoe, warm weather inevitably lures us to the water. In season, beach and lake destinations are always popular, especially around holiday weeks and weekends.

Swimming, snorkeling, waterskiing or a jetski ride hold special appeal for the avid athlete. Or you may prefer to just recline with a good beach book, savoring the pleasures of bright sunshine, cool breezes, and sand between your toes. To complete the picture of seaside bliss, just add an ice cream cone.
