Mother Nature has gifted us with some jaw-dropping scenes of the natural world. With a country as huge as the United States, every state is bound to have its own unique natural landscapes. The same can be said about lakes, which provide charming views, learning opportunities, and engaging recreational activities. Some lakes, however, are either more stunning than others or have special traits no other body of water has.

That's why Insider found the most beautiful lake in every state. According to the website, Washington State's most gorgeous lake is Lake Chelan!

"Although Lake Chelan in Washington is narrow, it's the largest natural lake in the state," writers say. "Lake Chelan is considered the gateway to the North Cascades National Park, offering visitors sweeping views of the mountainous Cascades. The lake is also surrounded by vineyards and small towns."

With glacial waters feeding into this body of water, Lake Chelan attracts visitors throughout the year. All types of activities and attractions are waiting for you here, including water skiing, fishing waterboarding, nature watching, public parks, museums, farmers' markets, and much more. As writers pointed out, several amazing, under-the-radar towns and small cities surround this lake, as well, from Stehekin to Mason.
