So you are on vacation and you are looking for a little excitement. That is part of what being on vacation means to me, taking the time to do things that you maybe did not do in the past. I know that many people take shore excursions when they are on a cruise, but did you know that you can also enjoy excursions when you are on a land vacation? I'm sure that you have done this in the past but you may not have thought about it being an actual excursion. What are some of the things that you could do and how do you go about locating them?
When we go on a cruise and the ship stops at the port you will see a flood of people walking the plank on their way to some sort of adventure. I know that my wife and I went on a beach excursion in the Caribbean one time and we ended up parasailing. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to do it again but time did not permit. Living in South Florida it would be an easy thing for us to go up in a parasail but we never even considered it while we were at home, but when we went for a trip to Lake Tahoe we ended up finding a place that would take you out and let you parasail over the lake. It was beautiful and a lot of fun, a land vacation excursion at its best.
Another one of our favorite cruise excursions is to go on the catamaran trips. It seems that at least one port on our cruise holds this excursion for us, there really is not much more of an enjoyable time in our eyes. So when we had family in a couple years ago and made a February trip to Key West we rented a catamaran there that took us off the keys and let us snorkel in the ocean. It was a lot of fun and there was music and free rum punch, a great time indeed.
So the next time you think about going on a vacation do not forget to take an excursion, and remember you do not have to be on a cruise to enjoy the cruise like atmosphere.
