If you have been around the blog at all this week, you would know I was all about the summertime activities this week! And if there is one word that has made its way into every post this week, it is kayak. I feel in love with it the first time I went...which was sadly the last time I went. I haven't been able to go kayaking again since last summer. Lately, it is all I can think about. If I can get myself back in a kayak at any point this summer, I will officially declare it the best summer ever. That is how much I am itching to get back into the water. So, I thought I would offer up a list of the places I want to kayak. I'm sure many, many more will be added to this list in the future. For now, here are the top 5 places in the U.S. I want to kayak.
5. Acadia National Park, Maine Traveling up and down the East Coast is definitely high on my list of things I want to do. Besides a stop in Boston (which has always been on my list), going to Acadia would knock two things off my list. Visiting another national park and kayaking of course.
4. Prince William Sound, Alaska Just Google a picture of this place and tell me that you wouldn't want to see that beautiful place up close and personal.
3. Lake Tahoe, California This one is sort of a cop out, seeing as I've already done it and it's where I went for the first time. But, the weather is beautiful, the lake is clear, and the scenery is some of the best. Definitely wouldn't mind seeing it all again.
2. Glacier Bay, Alaska Again, Google this place and tell me you wouldn't want to see it. Those views are absolutely breathtaking. I don't think I would be able to leave or at least stop drooling from the beauty. Gorgeous.
1. Chicago River, Illinois This is absolutely the top of my list. One, I've always wanted to visit Chicago. Two, I love skylines and architecture. Three, Chicago has a kayak tour that combines all of those things. A three hour, architectural, kayak tour at that. You can cruise the Chicago River as it winds through the city and just marvel at The Windy City. Yes, please! They also have options for a sunset paddle or night paddle! Who wants to plan a trip?
Taken from here, which is ironically an article on the dangers of kayaking the Chicago River. I still want to do it.
I've started a page in my travel journal of places I want to kayak,
where are some places I should add to the list?
Where is the one place you want to kayak or visit this summer?
