"It's getting outdoors and getting your heart pumping," she said. "It's good for you to get outside. "And the swim lake is closer than going to the beach and is one of the cleanest places you can swim. And it's pretty cheap." Ms. Staib said this summer all of the state parks are offering a family pass online that will get you free swimming, a free hour's boat rental and other perks at all of North Carolina's state parks.
