If you are an adventure seeker or if you are simply intrigued by the concept of exploring the great outdoors, you might be wondering what recreational activities suit your needs. Most activities are physically demanding, so alongside the vast enjoyment you will receive, you will also get a great workout.

Getting outdoors is great for your mental health and you will feel a great sense of accomplishment getting active. A healthy body and mind go hand in hand and by exploring the great outdoors you will be exhilarated and fulfilled. If you are struggling for ideas, why not explore Henry County? This is one of many places to visit in the United States that offer a sense of freedom and to further inspire you here are some fantastic activities which will certainly get your blood pumping:

Visit St. George Island

This is a fantastic location that will quench your thirst for excitement. The island is located along the Gulf of Mexico and comprises miles of white sand beaches which are awe-inspiring. There are stretches of tantalizing, nutrient-rich waters and various forms of sea life to explore. For further information on this tropical paradise, we recommend you observe the St. George Island Guide, which has been prepared by experts to give you a better idea of how to explore the island.

River Rafting

This is a popular activity that brings a touch of adventure with it. You might be in for a rocky ride, but this is all part of the fun. There are various levels of difficulty, so you should decide depending on your expertise. This adrenaline-pumping activity will take you across incredible terrains and since any mountain river is suitable for river rafting, you can strap in and go from any location. Remember to be safe, because you will pick up serious speed with this challenging exploit, and, most importantly, wear a helmet.

Rock Climbing And Mountaineering

When you reach the top of a mountain, it would be rude not to climb it, right? This is a scary prospect for some, but if you are feeling brave and feel like conquering the world, rock climbing will make you feel invincible. Safety is a number one priority, thus you need to either have professional help in toe or be professionally trained to safely rock climb. If mountaineering is sufficient based on your preferences, by all means just do that. The hunt for fresh climbing sites is exciting, so if you reach the top of a mountain and feel tempted, go for it. This is, of course, if you have safety harnesses and have checked every box to avoid falling.


Skydiving creates a flying simulation, which feels like you have wings, and this has extended beyond a passion. It is now a regular sport and Arizona is renowned as the “skydive capital of the world”. You will need to take a fearless approach and you can even film your adventure from 13,000 feet above the ground.

Hopefully, these ideas will inspire you to visit the great outdoors in the United States!
