Located in Shannon County, Rocky Falls is a stunning geological wonder. The 60-foot rock formations are a favorite for climbers. Walking trails wind in and around the falls so you can take in this sight without getting wet if you don’t want to. This is the perfect place for a picnic surrounded by nature with family and friends.

For the more adventurous, you can test your skill at climbing the falls’ steep rocks. One of the most beautiful beach/waterfall combinations in Missouri, Rocky Falls is definitely worth a visit for all nature lovers.

Although the underground tours at Soudan Mine have been suspended for renovation until 2023, this excursion is worth the wait. Located in Minnesota, Soudan was the state’s first iron ore mine. It opened in 1882.

The mine remained functional until a change in technology in the 1990s caused the demand for iron ore to decrease. Currently, the mine is undergoing changes, however, you can still get an above-ground tour that walks guests through the other mining jobs that impacted the industry. 

3. Jet Boat Adventure - New Jersey

East Coast Water Sports offers a variety of adventures for travelers visiting New Jersey. You can hit the water on your own jet boat to explore the sea. They also offer parasailing and guided dolphin tours on a speedboat.

Colorado Wolf Adventures is a jaw-dropping excursion for travelers looking to learn more about wildlife and engage with animals. This one-hour-long walking tour allows guests to get up close and personal with majestic wolves and learn more about the importance of preserving wildlife in Colorado.

The tours are fun and educational. However, some of the rescue stories can get a bit graphic so keep this in mind if you’re bringing children along with you.
