National Forest Activities
National Forests offer a great variety of activities which many people enjoy. There is camping, which has become a very popular family activity. You can take your RV to one of the National Forests and set up camp, or if you prefer to rough it by using a tent, you can do that also. You must choose the type of activity that you want to partake of and the recreational area that provides that type of activity.
Mountain Forests are great for camping, hiking, etc., and there is always the chance of seeing wildlife, such as deer, turkey, bear and squirrel. If you enjoy photography, you can take advantage of the forest and wildlife for some great outdoor photos. Horseback riding is another activity that these national forests may provide.
Many National Forests have a variety of different recreational activities. Some have hiking trails which are set up so that you can hike for as long as you like, from one day to several days, depending upon your preference. Bicycle riding is also another popular recreation for which some national forests provide trails.
Swimming and Water Activities
If you prefer water activities, there are lakes and streams that you can investigate and where great family adventures can be discovered. Lakes provide swimming, boating, and water skiing. Usually you would own your own boat and bring it with you when you come to the lake for your time of recreation. However, there may be instances when the lakes will provide boats for rental, if you simply like boating. Many friends and their families enjoy getting together for these activities.
Fishing is another of the great American recreational activities. Many people can go fishing and sit on the bank of the lake, river, or stream all day, whether the fish are biting or not. This appears to be more of a time for relaxation than enjoyment of the sport.
Mountain biking is another recreational activity that some people enjoy. Many national forests provide biking trails for this type of activity. Men, especially, enjoy getting together and attending these areas to get away from the business world for a time of action and speed.
Some national forests have rivers and streams that lend themselves to a good canoeing adventure. This seems to be an exciting activity. One must be in good health and very active to try this, especially when the rivers have several rapids. Each stream has its own personality, and there are times when the going is slow. This will allow you the time to enjoy the beautiful scenery on your way.
Indoor Recreational Activities
Many people are not outdoorsmen. Some people enjoy inside activities, such as bowling, weight lifting, boxing, billiards, racquetball, and table tennis. These activities are just as good for you, as far as health is concerned, as outdoor activities are, except for the fact that you are not soaking up vitamin C from the sun. If you get that, then you are doing just as well by your choice of activity.
It is simply your choice of which activity you prefer. Whether you are the outdoor type, or enjoy being inside those four walls, there are many recreational activities for you to take advantage of.
