In this post, I’ll give you some ideas for an active vacation in the US. Too much for any single holiday, the US has multiple distinct territories to explore. The east coast is home to the stunning scenery of New England and the diverse Carolinas which border the Atlantic Ocean, while the west features peerless California and the Pacific coastline. Colorado and gigantic Texas dominate the middle, with remote Hawaii and Alaska providing a respective tropical haven and snowy wilderness.
You can find whatever you are looking for in the US. The blistering summer heat in the west is matched by the more temperate and less predictable east, with cool winds and rain more often. Here the prolonged winters afford the opportunity for snow sports to continue long throughout the year.
The Rocky Mountains reach their peak at 14,433 ft (4,399 m) in Colorado, while the 2300 miles (3,700 km) long Mississippi River tears through the middle states. Sandy beaches can be found on both coasts, and numerous mountain ranges afford the prospect of unique snowboarding and skiing experiences.
