Summer is here and you’re ready for a vacation. You cannot wait to get away from it all and connect with Mother Nature. You don’t just want to be outside, you want to get up close and personal with the outdoors. Check out the following four vacation ideas for nature lovers: 1. Monument Valley, Utah You’ve probably seen the iconic shots of “The Mittens” in Monument Valley, Utah, but there is much more to see in this park. The 30,000 acre Navajo Tribal Park features dozens of breathtaking sandstone monuments that have captured the imagination of visitors and movie directors alike.

These days, a pink umbrella and a mai thai just won’t cut it. We want our vacations to inspire and excite us. Gone are the days of the family ski trip and the summers spent reading the newest Dan Brown book with our heels dug in the sand. We need adventure, excitement and a new experience. This is where extreme vacations come in. From surfing to skydiving, there’s all kinds of fabulous extreme vacations out there to explore.

Two years ago, my wife and I moved our family from Central Florida to Atlanta so I could pursue my careers options.  So we try to make a trip or two back to the old stomping grounds to see family, visit friends and see what has changed.  Part of our old stomping grounds is a place on the west coast called Little Gasparilla Island.  LGI is two hours south of Tampa off of Interstate 75.  From Atlanta, it’s about an 8 hour drive.   Little Gasparilla Island is only accessible by boat or by the local ferry if they are around to pick up the fare.  The locals have fought to keep a bridge from coming to the island, and so far, have been successful.  When you step onto the island, you walk back in time as there are no cars, no stores, no gas stations, and no stresses of everyday life.  The island is covered with quaint cottages, fishing shacks and houses recently built on stilts.  Your mode of transportation is predominantly electric golf carts or your sandals.  All the locals are friendly and willing to sit awhile just to listen to the breeze whether that breeze come from...
