If I were in better shape I would like the Atlanta Dayhiking (because its nearby) or surfing (just because I've always wanted to learn to surf) -- realistically, I'd rather do the spa!

This is just awesome!!! Since I live in San Diego, I'd probably choose the Whale Watching. But the surfing excursion looks awesome, too! I think I'd have to choose the whales, though and then use the $80 savings toward the surfing. That's it!!! I had a blast looking through all of the adventures! Thanks for such an awesome, awesome giveaway!!! Smiling

I would love to go snowshoeing around Sacramento. Whale Watching is nice, but California Grays pass by here.

tough one! they all sound so great & i haven't tried ANY of the options. i think i would opt for whale watching. i really love whales and always wanted to be a marine biologist but i've never gone whale watching (sad, i know!). i live in southern california and there is quite a bit to do here, but i'm always too busy with school! its a bummer for sure!

i like the adventure box. I'd choose horseback riding as it's something that I only did once at a park for about 5 mins. I mean i just walked by the handler about a block and then i got off. Not much adventure there! thanks!!
