The parkour scene in SF is very welcoming while being quite developed. It really doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie free-runner or a trained traceur, you’ll be working on your monkey vaults in no time! The fact that it’s free is just the icing on the cake.
If you visit Cordova, Alaska, and travel along the roadside in Child’s Glacier during summer, you get to witness the fall of ice every 15-20 minutes. But if you head to the Chugach Mountains, you can actually walk up to a 27-mile glacier, located in Matanuska.
Lift passes are expensive, on-mountain lodging rates are off the charts and the runs crowdy. Instead try your hand at Nordic Skiing in the snow of Higgins Lake, Michigan, where you can ski for just $8 per day on a well-kept 12-mile trail, that’s just waiting for you.
Why not explore the National Marine Sanctuary located in the Florida Keys? You only need fins and a snorkel. This spot happens to be the earth’s 3rd largest reef and even houses the Christ of the Abyss statue, which is completely submerged.
No money? No board? Doesn’t matter. In Hawai’i’s Point Panic beach, right at the heart of every surfer’s mecca, is a place that is perfect for the ardent body-surfer. And because the boarders stay away, there’s no fighting for space on the waves.
