New Jerseyans are so lucky when it comes to lakes, we're spoiled.

We have beautiful lakes here in New Jersey.

The unofficial start of the summer begins this weekend with Memorial Day weekend and from what I'm hearing we are going to have a hot summer. Find a good lake or bay and jump in. There isn't a better way to cool off in the summer.

There is so much fun at lakes, especially in the summertime. Personally, I love paddleboarding but kayaking is hugely popular in New Jersey. How about just a nice swim in a beautiful freshwater lake, that sounds nice.

I remember growing up in Pennsylvania, we didn't have any beaches or bays near us. But, we had a lake near us, Lake Nockamixon. It was gorgeous and some wonderful memories were made there from family and friends. We would say, let's go to the lake.
