destination advice

hey guys, i'm new to the site. my name is jimmy and i wanted some advice on good destinations

here's what i want:
kayaking (rafting/etc)

i'm a novice, so nothing too intense. the last place i went was vail where i did mountain biking (took ski lift to the top and biked down). also did some trail walking, but spent more time biking.

now i want to do the same, but also include something with water

where's a good place to go this time of year? how about in the summer? (good place that's warm but not blistering hot, pretty, can go boating/swimming, etc.)

thanks for the help!
