Best Place To Go Swimming

Gold Winner Long Lake

Silver Winner Chocolate Lake

Bronze Winner Rainbow Haven


Literally *anything* can happen at gold winning Long Lake: skinny-dipping sirens at midnight? Check. A Mennonite water party? Last June, yep. Cranksters arguing about a truck pull? You bet. Cane-using retired folks quietly walking a dog, toking a joint? Seen it. Long Lake makes no sense at all, if by sense you mean “order” or “meeting your expectations,” which is exactly why everyone loves the place. Silver-winning Chocolate Lake shares a lot of Long Lake’s fun weirdness, plus it’s a short bike ride from the universities. Bronze-winning Rainbow Haven is where people go to get free concert tix.
