Maine's coast may be a great kayaking spot.

Canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts may be getting ready for the warmer weather, as well as checking out new locales to feed the need to travel around the water. If you are one of these people, and just happen to be planning a move in the coming months, you may want to consider one of these places located throughout the country. If a destination sounds like a good fit for you, then grabbing your moving boxes and heading to one of these areas may be a good idea.

Lake Eaton, New York
Tucked away in the Adirondacks is Lake Eaton. The area is the home of a sizable campground, as well as a fun lake that could be great for canoeing. In addition to canoes, the area allows for kayak and rowboats rentals, according to Reserve America. Plenty of fish live in the lake, which include trout, bass and salmon. For those who aren't just looking for water fun, you can also check out the extensive biking and walking trails.

Inside Passage, Washington/Alaska
If the Pacific Northwest is more your speed, then canoeing on the Inside Passage may be a good plan. This stretches quite a long way, as it is approximately 950 miles long, according to GORP.com. It touches Washington, Alaska and British Columbia, so your choices to use it are quite vast. Kayaking is the preferred way of getting around on this water passage, and you could see a diverse amount of geological landforms, as well as animals. Not only is sea life including whales visible, but it is also possible to see many animals on land from this area.

Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, Kentucky
There are also some great spots for getting on the water in the Ohio Valley region. One of these spots is Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, which is a good spot for multiple types of small watercraft, according to Reserve America. White-water rafting is popular, but you can also just as easily navigate calmer areas with canoes. Fishing is also plentiful, which can be great if you want to relax with some friends and a rod. It also has many other activities to enjoy, including swimming and hiking.

Maine island Trail
The Northeast has no shortage of rivers and lakes, and its coast also allows for some unique kayaking. The Maine Island Trail may be a good spot for those who love to examine natural resources and wildlife while camping and traveling. The area is approximately 325 miles long, according to GORP.com. It also has plenty of camping areas that you can stop in and sleep to continue your voyage. However, when using this venue, you will need to be a member of the Maine Island Trail Association, as the local authorities try to cut down on the damage from campers around the area. This can allow you to check out some of the best sights on the East Coast.

Hillsborough River State Park, Florida
The Western portion of Florida is home to one area that may be an attractive spot for kayaking or canoeing. Hillsborough River State Park has plenty of options available, and it is one of the oldest state parks in the Sunshine State, according to Reserve America. This spot has an extensive amount of fishing and swimming spots, and also is quite equipped for those who aren't crazy about hitting the water. If you bring some friends or family who want to stay behind, make sure they check out the trails and biking spots.
