Skiing And Snowboarding

Evidence suggests that people in Scandinavia started strapping flat, wooden blades to their feet thousands of years ago to help them slide across the snow, rather than to try to slog through it. Little did they realize that their ingenuity just to survive their long, hard winters would eventually develop into a recreational pastime that is enjoyed by millions today throughout the world.

New Things To Do

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Snowmobiling

    Snowmobiling began to take off in the 1950's as lightweight design emerged. At first, snowmobiling was a topic of dispute, because snowmobilers like to take advantage of the flexibility of their machines to travel off-road, thereby disrupting otherwise pristine environments. Others objected to snowmobilers because their machines were noisy and polluted the environment.
