Crater Lake, OR

Why: Crater Lake is so pretty that the Native Americans even had few words to describe it, simply calling it “Deep Blue Lake.” At 1,932 feet, it’s one of the world’s deepest lakes and one of the bluest. Even more stunning are the 2,000-foot high lava cliffs surrounding it.

To do: Aimlessly bike along a path, hike a trail brimming with wildflowers or “climb” mountains to find breathtaking views. Of course, there’s always swimming. It is a huge, beautiful lake after all.


Stay: Get the full experience and stay at one of the three Crater Lake lodges, the only lodges inside of the park’s grounds. If this is too rustic, the surrounding area offers an abundance of B&Bs, resorts and inns.
