With most states in the eastern U.S. bathed like a wet blanket in record heat and humidity, we indulged in some escapist research to locate lakes and swimming holes on land for sale that look perfect for a cooling dip. Cities along the eastern seaboard, from Boston to Washington, D.C., are currently under heat advisories for the weekend, although forecasters predict a cold front pushing in from the west will bring some heavy—and much needed—rain to the northeast U.S. as we head into next week. For those of you not lucky enough to have your own private swimming hole or backyard pool in which to escape the summer swelter, check out www.swimmingholes.org to see if there’s a local swimming hole near you!
