One of the most beautiful lakes I have every visited is Norris Lake in the Foothills of the Cumberland & Smokey Mountains.

LOLLake Tahoe at #10 while Lady Bird Lake is #5? Beyond ridiculous.

Looks like the author of this article hasn't been to these places. Tahoe should certainly come in above #10.

Such a wonderful article with lots of informative lake information! Once every summer I drag the kids away from the swimming pool and take them to the nearest lake. The natural beauty of a large body of water blows them away. I grew up on a lake so these trips are like being back home for me.
