The Great Outdoors
For those that love the great outdoors, consider centering this years family vacation around an outdoor sport.

Most of these destinations offer lessons for the novice as well as experiences for every skill level.
The United States is filled with history that you can learn about by touring museums, visiting a living history village, or engaging in hands on demonstrations. All along the East Coast you will find examples of this type of education dealing with the lives of our first settlers. Head west to explore the lands our pioneers went in search of, and learn about their struggles. The South is rich in Civil War facts and traditions, while the Alamo teaches us about another fight for independence.
Thrill seeking can be as outlandish as jumping out of an airplane to riding an amazing roller coaster. Zip lines, bungee jumping, and sky diving opportunities are found throughout the country. A trip to the Northern Shores includes all this plus the incredible thrill rides at Cedar Point. By heading the opposite direction you’ll discover Orlando which is toted as the theme park capitol.
