Top 10 Family Friendly Lake Destinations

We are lake people, the more time we spend at the lake near our home the better! I can’t tell you why exactly we feel drawn to the lake. Maybe it is the fact the closest beach to us here in Kentucky is 8 hours away, assuming that no one has to go potty! So, because of the fact that we are lake people, we thought that a top 10 list was in order.  lake life
