The San Juan Islands, off the coast of Washington State, are an excellent place for the whole family to go on a kayak adventure. This area of the Puget Sound is full of over 150 islands of various sizes. You can kayak all around the islands and the hundreds of small rocky islets. One of the reasons this is such a good spot for kayaking is that the area is protected from the ocean by the Olympic peninsula and bounded on the other side by the mainland.

Another great thing is the abundance of wildlife that you can see while paddling your kayak around the islands. Harbor seals love to lay out on the rocky outcroppings. Other Puget Sound watchable wildlife includes bald eagles, osprey, blue heron, otters, sea lions and porpoises. And don't forget the whales. Orca whales are quite common and spotting them is a fun part of a San Juan Islands kayak trip.

Sea Quest Kayaks and Shearwater Adventures are two companies that you may want to look at for renting kayaks for the family and for help planning your kayak vacation trip to the San Juan Islands.

If you are into adventurous hiking and a good challenge, then Mount Washington, New Hampshire could be the vacation hike of a lifetime. This peak is 6,288 feet and there is a visitors center at the peak with food and shelter. The trail up is often rough and rocky. You need to be in good physical condition. You also need be aware of the weather as Mount Washington is well known for its bad weather including extreme winds.

There are five trails to choose from and the Tuckerman's Ravine Trail is the most popular. It starts at the Pinkham Notch Visitors Center, runs for 8.4 miles and ascends 4,300 feet. Whichever trail you choose, the hike up Mount Washington is tough but very doable. Just be in shape and be prepared and you should have a great time.
