Adventurous Social Getaways
Going on holiday is almost a necessity for most people. You get away from it all, and have fun without having to devote any of your attention to bosses or customers. More people than ever are electing to go on holiday with not just their families, but with their friends as well. This is partly due to the fact that so many people elect to marry later. After all, they have to have somebody to go on holiday with, right? Here are some of the top adventurous social getaways for people who travel with friends and family.
Any list of holiday destinations simply must include theme parks. Disney World is everyone’s world, and in the States, the 6 Flags Resorts are popular. But there are many more theme parks you can visit and have plenty of fun. In the UK, there is Legoland, Alton Towers, Paultons Park, Gulliver’s Land, and many more theme parks for your entertainment. Rides and stage performances, along with food and souvenir vendors, create a stay-all-day venue that can help you escape from the everyday world.
In Europe, some of the same theme parks are popular, such as Legoland and Alton Towers. There is also the Walt Disney Studios Park, Tivoli Gardens, and Parc Asterix, among others.
If you would like a holiday somewhere with less mechanics and more nature, you and your friends might consider the beach. Every continent has stunning beaches, so there are getaways for every time of year. Perhaps the best thing about beaches, besides sand and sun, is that so many people are surfing now. It is not just a sport for hippies, yippies, and beach bums. Everyone, from children to grandmas, can get a boogie board and enjoy the waves. There are even classes that teach you how to enjoy surfing at a beginner level.
Anyone who enjoys walking for exercise will probably enjoy hiking. It is a little more strenuous, and requires special boots if you want to find purchase on slopes, but hiking can take you and your friends to beautiful places. In the UK alone, there is almost unlimited hiking that takes you to breathtaking cliffs and beaches, and across historic plains and fields.
But, don’t stop with your own back yard. There are hiking and walking trails all over the world. You do not have to be a mountain climber to enjoy some of the most awe inspiring sights in the world. Go to Peru, and follow the Inca Trail. It is a 35 mile hike, and classified as one of the world’s best hikes. It is a 5 day trip up to Machu Picchu – one of the 10 wonders of the world.
Don’t leave out the Great Wall of China. Now, there is an adventure for your group, with 1500 miles stretching out ahead of you. Of course, you don’t have to walk the whole thing, but what a trip!
Theres more than just hiking too, if you’re looking for something slightly more extreme then why not try out some Adventure Activites? I found some great Adventure activities in Devon where you can go Kayaking, Surf rafting, coasteering and much much more. A very exciting adventure, that’s for sure.
So, get with your friends and family, and check out adventurous social getaways. You’ll be glad you did.
