There is absolutely nothing wrong with going for a full-on luxury vacation at a five-star hotel, with cocktails magically materializing in your vicinity 24/7, lavish many-course meals and all kinds of pampering worthy of French kings.
But still, there is nothing quite as exciting and life-changing as an adventure vacation. Some people think they need to travel abroad for these, but we are here to tell you that there are so many adventure trips to have in the U.S. Here are the best 21 of them.
1. Visiting The Glaciers In Alaska
Truth be told, we probably could have done this whole list by just naming different adventures you can have in Alaska, probably the most exciting “adventure state” in the country. Maybe in the future we will. For now, we will cover the entire country but still start off with an Alaskan adventure.
We are talking about two glacier-spotting adventure locales – the Glacier Bay and the Prince William Sound. These two areas will provide you with unforgettable experiences as you sail around the glaciers, watch all the incredible wildlife that lives in the area and learn about the indigenous cultures that thrived there.
The mere drive to the places where you start your adventures is something else, let alone seeing the actual glaciers that up-close. The Glacier Bay is surrounded by rainforest so you will get to experience that wonderful sight as well.
