If you want to get away but don't want to drive far...Lake Pleasant is perfect. My husband and I went on a hike and then went swimming. For 6.00 entry fee it's well worth it. The lake wasn't too crowded for going during the summer on a Sunday afternoon and the people at the park entrance we're friendly and even gave us maps of their hikes/the park.
