If you're looking for an excuse to stand on a river enjoying the sounds, smells and scenery of some of the most beautiful spots, try fly fishing. Fishing is a multigenerational activity perfect to enjoy with children, grandparents or whoever. With enough practice, you can even catch a coveted cutthroat trout. Governors Island already has an impressive children's playground (including slides for adults), but the monument's adventure zone, a recreational entertainment destination, makes summer in New York even more fun Enjoy thrilling rides like a Flywire zip line (imagine those incredible views of the Statue of Freedom as you soar through the island breeze), a 3D climbing challenge and the Amazon maze.
And if you want to spend the night on the island, consider glamping with Collective Governors Island. Contrary to popular belief, the East River and Hudson River are not yet radioactive, and hitting the water can provide a fascinating moment and some unique views of the city. Many of the city's most popular boat sheds offer free rides, so there's no reason to resist the 20-minute rush of riding on the water. While Alabama has many unique and interesting state parks to explore, if you're looking for a great adventure, Cathedral Caverns is hard to get to.
This massive cave system has one of the largest entrances on the planet, extending 25 feet high and more than 126 feet wide. Once inside, you'll discover an underground wonderland filled with imposing stone roofs, twisted caverns, unlikely rock formations and a stalagmite called Goliath. This feature alone measures 45 feet in height and 243 feet in diameter, placing it among the largest of its kind found anywhere in the world. If you're looking to get away from it all, add Alaska's Gates of the Arctic National Park to your places to visit.
The park has no visitor center, roads of any kind, or even defined trails. However, it has 8.4 million acres of unspoiled nature, making it a great destination for backpackers looking for solitude. Accessible only by seaplane, chances are you won't see another soul during your stay in the park. However, you may see a herd of wandering caribou, like the number of thousands there, creating one of the largest annual migrations on the planet.
