Greensboro is the home of what may be a great water park destination.

With the summer coming up, you may be looking for places to bring the kids once it gets hot outside. This can be a great way to consider your relocation plans, as there are many spots around the country to keep cool. When getting specific, you may want to consider a place with one of the many water parks in the area. This could be a good idea to bring family members where everyone could have fun. So if one of these areas seems like it may be the right spot for an easy getaway, it could also be a top area for your family to bring moving containers.

Dollywood's Splash Country, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
If you are looking at the Southeastern part of the country, you won't have any shortage of water parks. One of these options is located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, which is approximately 45 minutes from Knoxville. This area is the home of Dollywood's Splash Country, which has many different rides, including approximately 20 water slides, according to Tots & Travel. There are also areas for smaller children where they can enjoy rides better fit for them.

Gulf Islands Waterpark, Gulfport, Mississippi
Heading south will bring you to Mississippi, and the Gulf Coast is the home to another fun water park. Located in Gulfport, the Gulf Islands Waterpark is the home of a sizable water roller coaster called the Horn Island Blaster, according to CNN. This intense ride can be fun for the older crowd, but don't worry. If you have little ones, you can still have fun. One choice is a slide called Ship Island Wreck, which caters to toddlers.

Noah's Ark, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin
Going north toward the Canadian border may be a bit cooler, but hot days are still the norm in the summer. If you are planning on bringing your moving boxes to Wisconsin, you may want to check out Wisconsin Dells. This city is the home of Noah's Ark, which is one of the oldest water parks in the country, according to Tots & Travel. It has more than 40 rides, so you might be busy all day. For those who want to avoid slides and other rides, there are plenty of places to check out. This includes miniature pools for small children, as well as river rides and pools.

Wet 'n Wild Emerald Pointe, Greensboro, North Carolina
Another spot in the Southeast that could be a good place to consider is located in the North Carolina city of Greensboro. The Wet 'n Wild Emerald Pointe park has not only great water attractions, but it is also a staple for those who like the drier rides, as well. According to CNN, this is the home of the Skycoaster, which is a mixture of both hang gliding and bungee jumping. However, if you want a destination that is water-based, then it may be a good idea to check out the water slide dubbed "Daredevil Drop."

​Splashin' Safari, Santa Claus, Indiana
The Ohio Valley is also the home of a park that could be a fun destination when the temperature creeps up. This location, named Splashin Safari, is in Santa Claus, Indiana. This, like many of the other destinations, has options for both those who want fun, exciting rides and relaxing options for little kids. For those who want to be wowed, it could be a good idea to check out the long water coaster named Wildebeest, according to Tots & Travel. However, those looking for low-key fun can bring their kids to the Kima Bay water area, that has many fun things at low water depths.
