It's vacation season but with the gas prices as high as they are some people are canceling their big vacation plans and deciding to stay closer to town. Of course, where ever you decide to go you are going to want some major relief from this heat. It's always a good idea to vacay close to a body of water.

Right on the Water With Your Very Own Swimming Hole

This gem is actually really close to Texarkana and it's set right on the riverfront of the Caddo River. In fact, you will see just how close to the water this cabin is in the photos below. You can just walk down the steps and right into a great private swimming hole. People love to float, kayak and fish on this river too.

Plenty of Room for Family & Friends

You can take the whole family or have a fun getaway with friends. Either way, this looks like a great place to check out.

This cabin is three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Plus bunk beds for the kids. It also has a wonderful big porch area and the inside is a nice open floor plan.

Just imagine playing in the water and cooling off during the day. Then at night hang out on the porch with a nice cool drink and listen to the relaxing sounds of the river flowing by.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.

LOOK: Here is the richest town in each state

Just saying the names of these towns immediately conjures up images of grand mansions, luxury cars, and ritzy restaurants. Read on to see which town in your home state took the title of the richest location and which place had the highest median income in the country. Who knows—your hometown might even be on this list.
