Hi Toya,
A good place to start looking for geospatial data is the USGS and 
various agencies that use spatial data.

Have a look at

Those are just a few links I pulled from 
http://www.google.com/search?q=usgs+spatial+data  because I can't 
remember anything more specific - its a few years since I've done any 
spatial stuff, and I mostly used commercial or private datasets, but I 
know there is lots of data on the USGS sites in various formats. 

Good luck,
