7 Places You Didn’t Know That Can Keep Your Adventurous Spirit Alive

There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of a new adventure. With the windows of your Corolla Hatchback rolled down, the wind in your face, the blue sky stretched above – it’s exciting to get out of your house and push yourself to new limits.

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you know how amazing it can be to do something adventurous. We’ve compiled a list of 7 places you can visit to keep your adventurous spirit alive and flourishing. Here’s the thing though: these are 7 places you might not have thought about – which makes it all the more thrilling.

1. Swim from Alcatraz

You may have been on a tour of Alcatraz, but have you ever ​swam ​away from Alcatraz? If you’re looking for the ultimate water adventure, pack up your Corolla Hatchback with your wet suit and hit the road to San Francisco! Note: the Alcatraz swim is for serious swimmers only, and must be done through a professional organization, like Water World Swim.

2. Head to Joshua Tree and explore an abandoned gold mine

Kick up the dust and drive yourself to Joshua Tree, where you can visit the Desert Queen Mine. Think you can just stroll up to the mine? Think again. You have to go through an extensive hike, so this trip is for those truly seeking excitement and adrenaline.

3. Paraglide and feel like you’re flying

If you’re afraid of heights, it’d probably be best to move onto the next adventure. But if you wish you could fly, then this is for you. Hop out of your Corolla Hatchback and get into the skies with paragliding. Talk about having the view of a lifetime.

4. Get your jetpack on

Jetpacks are probably one of the coolest things ever. Drive over to the nearest place that offers jetpacking – if you’re in California, look up Jetpack America – and get to jetting! Your heart won’t be able to stop racing.

5. Go sea-kayaking

Up the excitement and get your blood pumping by going kayaking in the sea. Pack your car for the perfect road trip and head to the ocean, where you can master the open waters and take in gorgeous views.

6. Go zip-lining

Zip lining is one of the best ways to not only take in amazing views, but to also feel those exciting butterflies in your stomach. You can road trip down to San Diego and zip line over the Southern California jungle. It’s quite the adventure.

7. Go swimming with sharks without a cage

It may sound like the plot to a scary shark movie, but it’s not the case. Drive down to San Diego where you then take a boat offshore 12 miles where you then jump into shark-infested waters. It’s terrifying, yes, but also probably one of the most exciting things you could ever do. Plus, you’re doing it with a professional so you know you’re safe…right?

So what are you waiting for? Pack up your Corolla Hatchback and get going on those adrenaline-pumping adventures! The world awaits.
