Going for a day trip is a memorable way to celebrate birthdays. The world is a big place and full of things to see and do. When planning trips, keep in mind the interests and abilities of everyone attending.
Outdoor options include camping, white water rafting, canoeing, horseback riding, going to the amusement park, picnicking at the beach, golfing, skeet shooting, visiting the zoo, apple picking, whale watching or snowboarding. A lot of outdoor activities are seasonal, but there's always something to do.
Museums are a great place to take kids and many museums offer group discounts. Maybe your party isn't interested in arts or history, but science museums often have hands-on exhibits and games great for kids and adults. There are museums about space, insects, technology, war, music and even a museum of bad art. Watch for special exhibits that may be coming to your area.
There are also historical sites in every state and county. Go on a tour of an old mine or follow a part of the Freedom Trail. Go on the National Park Service website or visit your local chamber of commerce's website to discover something historical about right where you live.
You are never too old to learn something new.
For the Adventurous
What better way to celebrate life is there than by having a once-in-a-lifetime experience? For those unafraid of heights, try skydiving, hot air ballooning or bungee jumping. For those unafraid of the dark, try cave exploration or scuba diving.
