Los Angeles is sprawling; seeing the best the city has to offer in just three days is easiest with taxi service in Los Angeles. Public transportation in L.A. is an option but there are waits, approximately 15 to 20 minutes for each bus, adding an hour or more to a sightseeing trip. Renting a car to see the sights is also an option but Los Angeles traffic congestion is notorious, making the drive in an unfamiliar city stressful.
Hiking and camping have been popular pastimes for many people in the Western United States for quite some time. There are lots of parks to explore with some being so large that they even need their own rangers to help manage them.
If you know me at all I love to travel, see new places and experience new cultures. Some of my friends think I never sit still and that is probably true. Sometimes I forget I live in a pretty awesome place, Utah. You may say Utah? Really? What is in Utah? A smelly lake? Green Jell-O? Well yes the Great Salt Lake is pretty smelly and we do consume copious amounts green Jell-O but there are some awesome places you need to see when you visit Utah.
When I was in Boy Scouts my troop went up to Jackson Hole to go white water rafting. It was one of my favorite experiences of my childhood. I know these aren’t the biggest rapids but for a 12 year old they seemed pretty awesome and even now I still love them. Typically if you go with a guide (which I recommend unless you know what you are doing) you have two options one with white water and the other is a scenic float.
