Give Visiting Family a Thrill with a River Rafting Adventure

Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with new and fun things to do when family comes to town. If you’ve lived in the Sacramento area for a while, and your family has seen all of the local attractions many times, you need to come up with something new that you can do that everyone will enjoy. Fortunately for you, Adventure Connection has the perfect solution with white water river rafting on the American River.

This California river rafting trip begins just an hour outside of Sacramento, California. You can easily plan a half day or one day adventure for you and your family, and still have time to do all the other things on your itinerary. It doesn’t matter if your family members aren’t experienced river rafters. The South Fork of the American River features class III rapids, which are thrilling, yet safe for beginners. In fact, anyone can go on this trip, as long as they are seven years or older.

Not only will a trip down the American River be as exciting as a roller coaster, but it is also beautiful. The American River winds through some of the most pristine wilderness left in the country. You will have the chance to see deer, eagles and many other birds, mammals and reptiles. This is a great way for your out-of-town visitors to see the beauty of your home state.

So, when you have family coming to town and need something new to keep them amused, make arrangements for a white water rafting trip on the American River.
