New River Gorge Bridge, which is 876 feet tall, has been the most popular BASE jumping spot in the country every year in October since 1980. This year’s Dridge Day is on the 15th. This is the only day you’re allowed to leap off the bridge. Go there and see jumpers leaping more than 800 feet into the New River Gorge below. Rappelling, skydiving, and more adventures abound.
