Trivia Question: Which President enjoyed skinny dipping in the Potomac River?

It’s hard to imagine a President swimming in the Potomac River, let alone swimming nude. But according to his own diaries, President John Quincy Adams liked to wake before 5 a.m., walk two miles from the White House to the riverfront, swim for up to an hour, then walk the two miles back home. Historians say this wasn’t such an unusual thing to do in the 19th century, and Adams likely wasn’t the only person who left his clothes on the riverbank before diving in.
