8 Lake Trips That Should Be on Your List

Don’t live near a beach? Here’s where you go to hike, bike, boat, and lounge this summer.

WHERE: DILLON, CO
TRAVEL: DENVER
ACCOMMODATION: WILDERNEST TIMBERLODGE 205 (FROM $156/NIGHT) 

Welcome to the summer Aspen. According to Brian Raub, of lakelubber.com, the lake offers stunning views of the surrounding 13,000-foot peaks and contains all the luxuries of a high-end vacation: There’s sailing (from $120/2 hours) and kayaking ($30/2 hours), and the world-class Corpus Sanus Spa for a hot stone massage ($99). After hours, hit up the Dillon Dam Brewery or Pug Ryan’s—perhaps the only tiki bar in the U.S. that’s nearly two miles above sea level.
