Lake Mead, Nevada
Here is our first popular destination that has one of the most beautiful lakes located in the heart of a desert. Also, Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon are very close to it, but these are not the main reasons why this destination is popular.
Recently, the volume of Lake Mead dropped due to the expanded drought, and now hikers can easily access the Old West Town of St. Thomas ruins that have been underwater for decades.
In addition to that, divers can now find the Boeing B-23 Superfortress bomber easily. Back in 1948, it crashed into the lake while being on a secret mission and it has been way too under the surface for anyone to reach it.
