The 50 Best Last-Minute Summer Adventures in the U.S.

Going on a trip at the last minute is a risky affair. Depending on how you choose to travel and what your destination is, the trip will probably be costlier and you won’t be able to escape huge crowds.[slideshow:104514]

The good news is that you have a shot if you embark on your adventure after mid-August. This is when most families are already home getting ready for school. You have no more excuses to procrastinate a much needed summer vacation.

But don’t just go out there to relax when you can do that at home just as effectively. The season is for active adventures.

From kiteboarding in San Francisco to hiking the Grand Canyon, you really can’t go wrong as long as you’re enjoying the outdoors. Some venues may be more suitable or more beautiful than others, but there’s opportunity for adventure in all corners of the country.
