Perks of Living Near a Lake

Imagine waking up, grabbing a cup of hot coffee, and taking a short, relaxing morning stroll to the waterfront. You’re surrounded by morning dew, the sound of water splashing against rocks, the smell of fresh air and aromatic coffee, and a cool, comfortable breeze coming in off the lake. I can’t think of a better way to start a day, and that’s just one way you can make living near a lake work to your benefit. Below we’ll discuss a few more reasons that lakeside living can’t be beat.

Recreation Galore
Most people travel hundreds of miles to get to their favorite lake to spend the weekend on the water, but you can take advantage of endless outdoor activities without dedicating an entire weekend to it—unless you want to. You can go fishing, swimming, boating, kayaking, wakeboarding, and so much more. If you own your own boat, you don’t have to worry about taking it in and out of the water if you live nearby or lakeside, and if not, you’ll have plenty of friends who’ll lend you theirs for a day or two.

Water Makes Businesses Flourish
All of the aforementioned activities can be turned into businesses that will prosper lakeside. If you wanted to start your own fishing charter service, you can. If you want to open a kayak store, you’re in the right place. If you want to start a coffee shop, what better scene is there to draw in customers than a beautiful lakeside store?

Head to the Beach
Every lake has a shore, and that means a place to sit down, read a good book, and dip your feet into the water. Even if it isn’t exactly the glamorous sand beaches you would visit along the ocean, it’s still a place to relax, recover, meditate, and jump into the water when the feeling arises.

Stay in Shape
When you’re near a lake, you’re going to be spending a lot more time outdoors. Taking a leisurely walk or jog along the shore is infinitely more appealing than running on the rough sidewalks and concrete jungles of a big city. You’ll be eager to hop on your bike and ride along the beach or paths near the lake, and it won’t even feel like exercise.
