5 Surprising Things You Didn't Know You Could Do In The US

Saturday, June 10, 2017

The United States is filled with great attractions and travel destinations to visit. You can plan a trip to the US at any time of the year and always find a great place to visit with many activities to enjoy. You can have a wide range of travel experiences while visiting the country, from a relaxing getaway at a gorgeous beach to an adventure you will always remember near an active volcano.

Despite the many online resources, there are still a lot of great activities that you may not know about. Here are the top five surprising things you didn’t know you could do in the US.

Oahu Underwater Scooter Adventure

There is no better way to enjoy the gorgeous underwater view of Oahu than by taking an underwater scooter; your own personal underwater scooter, that is. The 2-hour tour involves you taking a self-propelled underwater scooter to explore the underwater landscape of Oahu and the nearby areas.

Dive and enjoy the gorgeous view of tropical fish and other sea animals in their natural habitat - it is a magical experience, but doing it while riding an electric underwater scooter is certainly something else.

Kualoa Ranch ATV Adventure

There is another kind of adventure you can try in Oahu: an ATV ride across the Kualoa Ranch. For those of you who love action-packed holiday activities, this is definitely an activity to try. You will be provided with a high-powered 4-wheel ATV capable of scaling the nearby mountainside.

A Jet Surf Ride

A jet surf is a jet-powered surfboard capable of hitting 36mph on the water. It is a carbon-fibre board paired with a lightweight yet powerful engine; the perfect combination for a thrilling surfing experience. You can jet surf in some fabulous locations around the US, but Minnesota is recommended for newbies.

Wild Horses in Maryland

Domesticated horses are very different to those in the wild. There is that additional touch of magic when you see a herd of wild horses galloping across a field. In the United States, you can have this magical moment while visiting the Assateague Island National Seashore. You can enjoy a relaxing day at the beach and watch wild horses run through the waves.

Golfing at the Hill

This last activity to try is for those of you who love to play golf. There is one particularly good course you definitely need to try the next time you are in the United States, and that is the East Potomac Golf Course in Washington.

The course offers a very rare chance of conquering 18 challenging holes while enjoying spectacular views of Washington D.C.’s most popular landmarks, including the National Mall and the Washington Monument. It is the epic views that really transform a simple golfing session into one you can brag about when you get home.

Add a gorgeous sunset to the mix, and you have the perfect holiday experience. This, along with the previous four amazing experiences you must also try, will transform a simple trip to the United States into one that you will remember for the rest of your life.

Very exciting activities. Often times we overlook recreational activities in our neck of the woods and seek out those in foreign lands. Golf on the hills sounds quite interesting as do the other ones. Trump may like that haha. Hope your weekend is most enjoyable Kim.
