While most people tend to make work and health related resolutions at the beginning of the year, travel bugs and thrill seekers are usually already plotting out their next fun adventure. If you are one of the latter, you may be wondering where you can go on your next trip this year. Read on for a few suggestions.
History With A Spooky Twist
Colonial Williamsburg probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind when thinking of places to go for an adventure. You may even think that this living history museum and historic district is more likely to put you to sleep than give you an adrenaline rush, but try to keep an open mind. Something the town offers that can get your blood pumping is a one of a kind Colonial Ghost Tour.
This is definitely a unique way to learn history in a fun and exciting manner. On this Colonial Williamsburg Ghost Tour, you will be led through the historic streets and buildings of Williamsburg by a licensed tour guide, who will tell you all about the city’s strange and tragic past. Expect to hear chilling stories about hauntings, sightings and paranormal activity as well—and let the fact that these stories are all real and well-researched send shivers up and down your spine.
Satisfy Your Inner Speed Demon
Head to Daytona Beach in Florida, home of the Daytona International Speedway, which hosts the annual Daytona 500 NASCAR race. Here you can sit shotgun in a real professional race car, buckle up your seatbelt and experience what it’s like to zoom down the racetrack at heart pounding speeds. If you are qualified and brave enough, you could even try one of the driving packages!
Touch The Sky
If you want to really push your limits, make your way to neighboring Miami and go skydiving. You can choose to either tandem skydive, or if you’re already an experienced skydiver, you can skydive solo. Either way, this is definitely something that every bonafide adventure seeker should do at least once in their lifetime.
Navigate The Rapids
The immense Grand Canyon in Arizona is known for its breathtaking vistas and stunning views, but for a fun and adventurous trip, you should try white water rafting. There are several trips that you can choose from, ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced and intermediate. It also depends on who you’re traveling with; whether it’s with your family, a group of friends, or your significant other, there’s definitely a white water rafting trip suitable for you. Again, this is something every adventure seeker should try to do at least once in their lives.
See Red Rock Country In A New Light
If water sports aren’t your thing, there are two other ways you can tour red rock country. Head to Sedona in Arizona and go on an off-road tour in an eye catching bright pink jeep or take in the magnificent surroundings and view via hot air balloon! This is sure to be an adventure you won’t ever forget.
These are just a few ideas and suggestions to get the adventure seeking ball rolling. Hopefully, this short list has inspired you to go out and seek more life changing and exciting trips this year.
