Lake towns are often an underrated destination to spend a day surrounded by friends and family while soaking up the sun and enjoying both leisurely and adventurous activities, from lounging along the shores or fishing in the quiet of the surrounding nature to hopping into a boat for a ride along the water or showing off your skills wakeboarding.

FinanceBuzz searched around the country for some truly stunning locales near the water, compiling a list of the "most popular" lake town in each state. According to the site, the top choice for South Carolina is the gorgeous northwestern city of Greenville, located near Lake Cooley.

Here's what the site had to say about the best lake town in the state:

"You could fish or sail on Lake Cooley, but Greenville offers even more onshore. Often referred to as America's Friendliest City, it's quite the tree-line community with a cosmopolitan feel. Stop at the art galleries, visit the craft breweries, and hike to Falls Creek Falls and Wildcat Wayside to see the waterfalls."
