Summertime is a popular time of year for people to take vacations for various reasons. One of the major reasons for this fact is because it’s warm, enabling them to participate in numerous activities that can’t be enjoyed in cold weather. Some popular vacation choices are amusement parks, beaches and campgrounds. Even in the winter people often seek breaks from the cold and head to warm destinations to relax and take in the sun.
One especially ideal vacation destination is located in Polk County, Tennessee. Although not warm year-round like some of the other sought after destinations, Ocoee Lake is the perfect spot for any vacation. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, the Ocoee Lake area, which is actually comprised of three separate lakes in one, is so breath- taking and gorgeous that you will wish you had discovered this place sooner.
The activities available at the lake are limitless. There is kayaking, canoeing, fishing, golf, hiking, white water rafting, scuba diving, etc. There is something to make everyone’s trip an enjoyable one, even if it’s simply lying on a cot near the lake, leisurely reading a book as you take pleasure in the beauty surrounding you. It’s your vacation, so you do whatever makes you happy and satisfied.
There are numerous lodging options to choose from while vacationing in this remarkable area. Depending on your personal preferences and budget, as well as how many people are in your party, there are cozy, little, quaint cabins, hotels with various amenities, and fully furnished houses. You may even decide to “tough it out” and take a tent to camp in on the nearby campgrounds.
If your job is especially stressful, after a peaceful week or so vacationing at this ideal location, you are guaranteed to return to work, refreshed, and totally free of any stress. Tennessee locals are known for their laid back personalities and they are hardly ever in a hurry. This coupled with the mesmerizing tranquility of the lake will cause your stress and anxiety to practically melt away. The southern hospitality of this area is also one thing that you will enjoy.
There are only two drawbacks of going on a vacation in this area. The first downside is the fact that you probably will not have a cell phone signal because of the mountains blocking the reception. There’s no way for your job to contact you and beg you to come back early because of an emergency. For most people, though, this is exactly what they need in order to get the most out of their vacation and thoroughly enjoy themselves.
The other negative aspect of choosing to vacation in the Lake Ocoee area is the fact that once you’re there you will definitely not want to leave. It’s such a wonderful, activity-packed yet relaxing retreat that you will feel like you’re in a utopia. So the next time you’re planning a vacation, forget Disney World or Las Vegas; Lake Ocoee is sure to give you a new perspective of the word “vacation.”
