We asked our Facebook fans for their favorite summertime water spots. Joanna Maria Borowska's recommendation was short and sweet: "New Zealand, anywhere."
Lake Wanaka, in the Otago region of the South Island, fits the bill. Popular for fishing, boating, waterskiing, and swimming, the lake splays out from Mount Roy, offering picture-perfect views for hikers and campers.
