This is your state's most beautiful lake

Love Exploring Logo By Ella Buchan of Love Exploring | Slide 2 of 51: Lake Martin, in Tallapoosa County, looks equally lovely viewed up close or from a distance, as this photo taken from Smith Mountain illustrates. The sapphire-hued reservoir glistens and shimmers over 44,000 acres and its craggy shoreline is edged by thickly wooded trails, coves and parks, with lots of benches and picnic spots for fully appreciating its beauty. The water is dotted with islets, too, which kayakers can view up close.
