Why go on another boring tour of Philadelphia or waste your time on your five hundredth visit to the beach when you could be having an adventure? Go rafting, climb an iceberg, spend a summer sailing a tall ship, meet polar bears or dolphins.

This section overlaps with the section on traveling abroad.
