— Adventures by City —

Las Vegas, Nevada

A little known fact is that Las Vegas is the perfect jumping off point for an endless number of incredible adventures. It usually has cheap flights from everywhere, is within an 8-hour drive of 15 National Parks (yes really!), and is close to so many other amazing places. So sober up, extend that conference stay, rent a car, and get off The Strip!

Seattle, Washington

We constantly recommend heading to Seattle when people ask about what National Parks to visit. There are 3 spectacular parks within an easy drive of the city and they are less busy than a lot of the other better-known parks. Plus the city has amazing food and drink, is home to the first Starbucks, and has the Space Needle. All in all, it's a great, easy family vacation if you don't have much time.

Salt Lake City, Utah

Salt Lake City has a rich art and museum culture including the Hill Aerospace Museum. SLC is located at the base of the Wasatch mountains which are home to famous ski resorts, amazing rock climbing, and countless hiking trails. It's also an easy drive to the Great Salt Lake, the unexpected Antelope Island, the Bonneville Salt Flats, and some incredible fossil hunting. Plus, it's the closest major airport to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

Portland, Oregon

Portland is known for beer, food trucks, doughnuts, Mt. Hood, and being weird—we highly recommend it! There's so much to see and do and drink in the city (Rogue Brewery anyone?), but there's also the most incredible coastline, mountains, rivers, and waterfalls just a short drive away. Plus Crater Lake National Park isn't too far away either.

St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis gets a bad rap in the news. It's an amazing (and safe) city filled with wonderful people, food, drinks, and attractions. The Gateway Arch, the Botanical Gardens, Anheuser-Busch Brewery tour, and Forest Park are not to be missed. Plus, our favorite man-made place in the entire country is in St. Louis -- the City Museum. Words cannot effectively describe this unique place -- you must experience it for yourself.
