Looking for adventure in your summer New England getaway? Zip line tours may be just the answer for you! While doing a search for some things not to be missed from a vacation getaway, I discovered the thrill of taking a zip line tour. What is it all about? Put on the helmet, clip in, and soar through the trees and enjoy the scenic views along the way. There are a number of them in New England and you can stay at one of your favorite Distinctive Inns of New England along the way. These two especially caught my eye:
Deerfield Valley Zip Line Tour located in Charlemont, MA, This zip line tour lasts three hours and zips through the woods by means of zip lines and sky bridges suspended in the trees. What better way to view Deerfield Valley and the Berkshires. After your thrilling day, stay at the Deerfield Inn which is 22 miles away or continue on to Lenox and stay at the Gateways Inn which is about 39 miles away.
Alpine Adventures, Lincoln, NH – All I can say about this one is that the grand finale is called “White Knuckle Pine”. It has an 80’ drop and zip speeds of up to 50 mph. Need I say any more? Enjoy a relaxing finish by visiting Rabbit Hill Inn 40 minutes away or Inn at Thorn Hill which is about a 70 minute ride. Make sure to reserve dinner as you will to relax after this day!
