A Day at Lake Murray
For some outdoor fun, you only need to travel to the northern edge of Lexington to find Lake Murray. Constructed in the 1920s to provide hydroelectric power for the state, Lake Murray is a huge reservoir stretching across more than 50,000 acres. At the time, this made it the largest man-made reservoir in the world. Since then, this lake has grown to become a huge recreational attraction for people all over South Carolina. Families looking to enjoy the outdoors together can spend a day on Lake Murray participating in a host of fun activities, including fishing, boating, picnicking, and swimming.
