Caddo Lake in Texas was named one of the South's Great Lakes by Southern Living! Few lakes envelop their visitors like Caddo. Pristine water spreads oil-black and disappears beneath lush green water lilies while it wraps around the trunks of bald cypress.
Kayaking along Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Upper Peninsula, Michigan. I did this for vacation last year. It's an eight hour day trip along the Pictured Rocks. Breath taking and well worth the money you spend on the experience!
