Traverse City, Michigan is a very popular destination in the summer for its beautiful water, weather, and a love of all things cherry themed or flavored, as the Cherry Capital of the World…..but you don’t have to wait until summer to experience adventure in Northern Michigan! I discovered why Crystal Mountain is a such a popular “snowcation” destination for winter fun too.
I have tried the Olympics sport of curling several times during a “Learn to Curl” class.
Each time I LOVED it! Why, you ask?
Looking for a gift that keeps on giving?
Why don’t you give someone the gift of adventure instead?
Here are a few reasons why you should consider giving an experience gift instead of a physical one.
When I visit a city, I seek out locations and experiences that are unique, that I can’t replicate anywhere else. I discovered that Columbus, Ohio has a lot to offer when it comes to connecting with nature through outdoor adventure. You can choose your own outdoor adventure in an urban setting, a scenic park, or the woods.
So did I find anything unique, that I couldn’t replicate anywhere else, in Columbus? YES, and there is a good chance that you will want to add these adventures to your list too!
I’m surrounded in a house of family members who LOVE and speak football… and I don’t understand the language. My husband LOVES all football from Thursday- Monday night. My boys have both played football and I still don’t really understand what’s going on. I call it a success when I can actually identify them on the field. You know they all look alike out there!
I knew that I had to jump on the opportunity to get a football intervention when I was invited to attend Women’s Football 101 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I even left an event in San Diego and slept overnight on a plane to be there. The women who I met from Visit Stillwater last summer left such a big impression on me that I knew that I didn’t want to miss this event or an opportunity to find out why they were so enthusiastic about their community!
One of the first things that I noticed about Get Air Trampoline Park was the open concept that allows you to move freely throughout the building. Someone had told me about the ninja course over casual conversation and I instantly wanted to see and experience everything in person.
I love when we get to share an adventure together as a family. We discovered lots of ways to play during our first visit to Main Event Entertainment.
White Water Rafting is an adventure that was on my bucket list for a while. It’s also an adventure that scared me a little. I like controlled risk and white water rafting can be unpredictable. Even though I was nervous about our adventure, my job was not to show it. [Read more…]
My personal experience with golf is that I’m better off driving the golf cart ….but I do like the driving range.
I was invited to preview Top Golf’s newest location in West Chester, Ohio. I was curious about the giant structure that I had seen from the expressway. I didn’t have a prior knowledge of Top Golf so I assumed that it was for people that were really serious about golf.
West Michigan has a lot to offer when it comes to adventure. I’m sharing 7 adventures that you will want to add to your list to try during your next visit.
