According to travel experts, two Florida cities have the bluest water in the U.S. The report comes from SIXT, who compared more than 50 bodies of water in to find the “perfect” shade of blue.
On the SIXT website they say, “Covering 70% of the Earth, scientists believe that when we’re near water, the sight and sound kickstart neurochemicals in our body that promote wellness, increasing blood flow to the brain and heart, all while making us relax.” They came up with the list to help you choose a location for your next vacation.
There are two Florida cities in the Top 10 for the bluest water in the U.S. Las Olas Beach in Fort Lauderdale comes in at #3. Also, Lake Conway, which is in Edgewood near Orlando comes in at #7.
