NASHVILLE, TN - What better way to spend the summer than swimming? Don your bathing suit before the end of the summer and enjoy the sun kissing your skin with the splash of freshwater. While swimming in a pool has its perks, nothing beats the outdoor fresh air and wildlife that you can enjoy around the lake. Here are the lake swimming spots in the Nashville area:

- Percy Priest Lake

You can access the 42-mile long lake with 15 minutes drive from Downtown Nashville. Tired of swimming? The lake also offers various activities, including wildlife watching, jet skiing, water skiing, wakeboarding, and others. The lake also provides campgrounds with facilities, including electricity, restrooms, showers, and dump stations if you plan to stay overnight.

If you are feeling adventurous? The lake also offers Percy Priest Lake Marinas' experience to those who enjoy boating. You can rent a boat to spend the time at the lake.

- Long Hunter State Park

Offering the other side of Percy Priest Lake, you can swim without supervision at Bryant Grove. You can venture to Couchville Lake when swimming gets boring. Although prohibited for swimmers, the lake allows guests to roam with paddles and rowboats around the lake.

The lake provides canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards for guests to rent with a $10 to $20 rate per hour during the summer. The park also offers various events to enjoy the lake.
