Getting Started on the Road to Adventure

The first thing you should know about adventure travel is that it's for everybody. Honest -- everybody. You don't have to be a diehard daredevil or world-class athlete, you don't have to be young (though you can be), and you don't have to rough it unless you want to -- even in the middle of the wilderness. In recent years travelers of every age -- parents, children, and grandparents -- have packed up comfortable clothing and headed into the great outdoors, where the possibilities for fun, learning, and excitement are as boundless and varied as the American landscape itself.
