    Located in the Pisgah National Forest along with Sliding Rock, the Elk River Falls is a favored spot for swimming and tanning on the smooth rock faces. Just be careful not to climb the face of the waterfall or dive from the cliff as this can have fatal results.

  5. White Lake

    White Lake in Bladen County is the perfect swimming spot for those who like to see what lays in the water beneath their feet. The white sand and still clear water allows swimmers to see to the bottom of this 15-foot deep lake.

Growing up in various states along the east coast, I've developed a love of all things local. I currently live in North Carolina and wouldn't move for anything! I love the beach, animals, and creating my own adventures. I encourage everyone to travel and never be afraid to fail.
