Whatever your interests are, the best vacation is likely a road trip away

Summer is finally here and if you haven’t made your vacation plans yet, you’re in luck. Do you enjoy adrenaline-pumping adventures?

America is full of a variety of iconic landmarks and natural wonders to explore. Sightseeing is definitely worth the trip.

But how about participating in active adventures? Each state has an abundance of outdoorsy quests to choose from.

Oftentimes, however, you have to pick one due to budget or time constraints. Hiking, biking, camping, whitewater rafting and skydiving, just to name a few, vary from state to state. Which offers the best experience?

In Minnesota, for example, you can literally design your own trip in the wilderness. How does rafting down the oldest river on the continent sound? If you want to try rock climbing, go to the Hueco Tanks State Historic Site where climbers from Europe and Asia visit every year. Have you ever been backcountry camping or spent a whole night under the stars? It’s a majestic experience.

Whatever your interests are, the best vacation is likely a road trip away. Take a look at the best active adventure in each state and see which ones suit you.
