Must Visit Places In USA For Your Adventure Vacations
If you plan on taking your next adventure vacation in the USA, here’s a quick guide for you to follow with some of the must visit places that you will fall in love (or rather adventure) with!
Yosemite National Park, California
Yosemite is the gem in America’s crown of national parks and the ultimate destination for an ideal adventure vacation. Wherever you look you shall only and only find kilometres of pure, pristine, unadulterated natural beauty in its expanse. There are mountains, forests and even waterfalls. All of this within the boundaries of this mighty park. One feature that stands out completely is its gigantic waterfalls. There are about 5 such waterfalls, each over 1000ft high in this park. Spring is thus the best time to visit as the waterfalls are on their full blast and the weather is conducive to travel, especially adventure related travel.
The Pacific Coast Highway, California
The Pacific Coast Highway is surely among the top contenders for the best roads in USA. It runs along the Californian coastline and has full ocean views in its entire length. The potential and great stops along this route include the likes of San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and the gorgeous San Luis Obispo.
Kauai is every photographer’s dream come true. It has lush jungles, beaches that look like postcards and endless and abundant sunshine, which means you can #nofilter those shots and make your friends so jealous! Its beauty alone makes it an idyllic vacation or travel adventure spot.
But Kauai is much more than that. Kauai is filled with adventure activities ranging from from the dangerously famous Kalalau Hike, a round trip of 22 kilometres! – to the Waimea Canyon lookout point. A lovely, picturesque spot to trek.
There is also something by the name of the Koloa Zipline. This zipline will take you racing at high speeds over the treetops attached by just a harness. You can take in the breath-taking panoramic vistas of the forests that cover the island, and get your heartbeat racing simultaneously.
The Koloa Zipline is well worth the $150 since it’ll really get your adrenaline pumping. The entire experience in the forest takes around three and a half hours. That’s because it encompasses eight ziplines, three of which are among the longest on the island. The longest line, the Waita Line, for example, is a half a mile long!
Yellowstone National Park Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho
Yellowstone means going for a hike. This is an extremely simple equation. There are dozens of trails and routes to choose from. You can follow whichever one fills your fancy. And all of them provide you with great views of the plains, creeks, and hills that make up its gorgeous landscape. The most popular among them is The Fairy Falls Trail owing to its views of the colourful Grand Prismatic Spring. But then, it is noteworthy that Yellowstone offers more than just a myriad of hiking routes. The park is also filled with hot springs. Hot springs are touted for increasing blood circulation, ridding the body of toxins, and aiding cell oxygenation and regeneration. Though many of the springs in Yellowstone are too hot to swim, there are two spots in the park that are perfect for taking a quiet and a small dip.
Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada
The water in the Lake Tahoe’s is the exact shade of turquoise which you see in those heavily filtered photos on social media. Except that this is a real lake in the US, and the water doesn’t need a filter to look this beautifully blue, fresh, and clear. What’s more, it has snow-capped mountains as the backdrop. The adventure surrounding this lake includes gawping at the lake or driving around its edges. There are lots of car rental places near Lake Tahoe. Once you’ve got your vehicle, there are loads of routes you can follow both alongside the lake and in the surrounding woods. One popular route is the Rubicon Trail, which encompasses some steep sections covered with loose rocks. Now that’s what I call a real adventure.
