7 Thrilling OUTdoor Adventures

When was the last time your adrenaline levels were through the roof?  No, checking your credit card bill doesn’t count. We’ve rounded up 7 amazing and exhilarating adventures that are best enjoyed with your crew or partner. Get ready to be blown away!


1. Car Racing in LA

Feed your need for speed with a day at the track driving stock cars with your team of friends. Sign up for the Super Ride with 7 laps of Pure Adrenaline Goodness! You will be teamed up with an instructor before you are geared up and ready to go. With up to 4 cars at a time on the track, you’ll be able to race and pass your friends on your way to the finish line!

Check out: Drive to Los Angeles and check out the Silverlake neighborhood


2. Camping in Yosemite

Nothing will satisfy more your love for the outdoors than a camping trip to Yosemite. Keep in mind that between March and November you must make a reservation to use some of the campgrounds. Get ready to cover a lot of ground hiking and blow up your Instagram feed with gorgeous photos.

Check out: Yosemite Falls and El Capitan


3. Zip Lining in Whales

Put on your flying suit and hold onto your stomach. If you ever wanted to feel like Superman or Supergirl, then you just need to head to England, in Whales to be more exact. The newly opened Zip World Snowdonia attraction is high above a lake on an abandoned quarry where you’ll reach speeds of up to 100 mph while going down the mile long cable.  

Check out: Liverpool, located 90 minutes away


4. Sky Diving in Upstate New York

About 90 minutes north of New York you will find Skydive The Ranch. If you have never experienced skydiving you are in for one amazing adventure. Once you’ve jumped with your tandem instructor from 13,000 feet enjoy the breathtaking views as you free fall 6000 feet before pulling the cord of your parachute. Splurge a bit for a video of your jump to share with everyone on social media!

Check out: Woodburry Commons Premium Outlets


5. Surfing in San Diego

Surfing is an awesome sport but what do you do when the waves just aren’t there? The answer is simple, you head down to the WaveHouse in Belmond Park, the only one of its kind in North America. Step on your board and ride this artificial wave for as long as you want while your friends are watching you and enjoying drinks in the nearby pool.

Check out: Balboa Park and the Gaslamp Quarter. Want to stay the night? The Marriott Gaslamp Quarter has a hot rooftop bar and lounge with a great view of the city and nearby Petco Park.


6. White Water Rafting in Colorado

If you have never had the chance to go white water rafting you must try it. This is an exhilarating experience with gorgeous scenery down the Colorado River by Glenwood Springs. I suggest you go in the middle of summer around July or August when the weather is the warmest. It’s fun to go with a large group and see who can get first down the river, a little competition never hurt anyone. 

Check out: Glenwood Hotsprings Pool and Hanging Lake Trail and The Big Gay Raft Trip (held each summer)


7. Dog Sleighing in Snowmass

This is a terrific adventure and the perfect thing to do while staying in Aspen for Gay Ski Week. Krabloonik offers a gorgeous ride through the aspen tree forrest with 8 to 10 huskies pulling your sleigh before heading back to base camp for a delicious meal by the fire. This is great experience for you and your special someone to enjoy together.
