5 Adventures Worth Having

Anyone who thinks life is boring isn’t doing it right. There are so many different things to try that you could spend an entire lifetime trying them and still not get through them all. If you have an adventurous spirit, enjoy traveling, or love outdoor recreational activities, here are five adventures that are definitely worth having. 


If you weren’t brought up in a family that goes hunting, it may not be something you’ve thought to try on your own. Hunting is one of the most incredible and rewarding experiences you can have because you learn a lot about nature and also how to provide for yourself. Plus, as long as you do it safely, shooting guns is just plain fun. While it may be fun, you still have to act responsibly around firearms, and part of this is ensuring that you are obeying the relevant laws, be they pertaining to hunting specifically or concealed carry rules (like those detailed here – https://gunlawsuits.org/gun-laws/illinois/concealed-carry/). For many gun ownership doesn’t stop with hunting, so it’s important that you stay educated on such issues. After all, we’re lucky to have the second amendment in this country so we should treat it with respect!

Skiing or Snowboarding

Snow sports like skiing and snowboarding are great because they take you to new heights (literally the tops of mountains) where you can see the world from a completely different point of view than you’re used to. Even if you don’t live in a mountainous area, there are tons of places all over the world where you can go to ski/snowboard, and most mountains offer lessons, so why not make a whole vacation of it? 


Surfing is an amazing adventure that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. There is something really amazing about feeling like you are one with the powerful ocean. The first few times you try it, you will probably get knocked down quite a few times, but nothing beats the high you’ll feel when you catch your first wave. 


If you love going outdoors, then you should consider making a camping trip out of it. Sleeping outside whether in a tent or under the stars is one of the most magical experiences there is. Just make sure you are aware of the wild animals in the area and come prepared for the elements. Respect nature and it will respect you back. 


Skydiving may seem like an extreme adventure to have, but it’s on many people’s bucket lists. Even if you’re afraid of heights, it could be a great way to overcome that fear. Skydiving is incredibly safe when you do it under the supervision of a professional, and the rush you’ll get from it is unbeatable. 

Running a Marathon

Even if you’re not a runner, signing up for and running a marathon is an awesome way to push your body to its limits. It takes months of strict training to be ready for, but that’s part of what makes a marathon so amazing to complete.

Many of the above adventures may seem difficult, but that’s what makes them so great. If you try the above 5 adventures, I guarantee you’ll be talking about them forever!
