Whatever state you live in, there is some adventure to be experienced and it is a great excuse to explore the country. Summer breaks When the sun is shining, it is great to be by the water and to look at adventures on the sea or lakes. Learn to sail, windsurf, kayak, or plan some hikes where you can stop off for a swim. Winter breaks If snow is what interests you more, then there are some of the world's best ski resorts in easy reach. Mix it up by trying snowboarding, snow shoeing or even outdoors ice skating. Whether it is a school trip or you are looking at travel tours for all the family, an adventure holiday will give you memories that will last a lifetime.
