Urban Zip Line in San Francisco or on Your Next Vacation

Adventure Vacation: Zip Line Tour

No need for a second cup of Joe as my work day began with an intense adrenalin rush: riding a zip line over Justin Herman Plaza in downtown SF. It's super fun and free, but you have to be willing to wait in line to get your wrist band and ride appointment between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The zip line, sponsored by the tourism board of British Columbia, is a 22-second thrilling ride. Our neighbors from up north wanted to give us a sample of the fun you can have in the BC province.

I know this mini-adventure is quite geographically specific, so if you can't make it to the longest urban zip line in the US by April 18, I highly recommend you plan a zip line tour into your Summer vacation, if possible. It is a fun, physical activity. While I think running is great way to sightsee while traveling, a zip line allows you to fly.

Here are just a few companies in locations ranging from Canada to Ohio to tropical Costa Rica where you can experience the fun.

The Hocking Hills canopy tour is in my area in Ohio! I have several friends who've gone and said it was amazing!!

I'm planning to try the SF zipline this weekend (if we can get in!). I wanted to go while I was in Costa Rica, but all the best places were in a completely different part of the country from where we stayed, so I'll settle for ziplining domestically for now.

I saw this advertised but am too scared to do it, because of heights. I went parasailing once and almost lost my mind

I've never done it but would like to, even though I'm afraid of heights. I saw the one they have in Singapore, the MegaZip, when they had to do it as a challenge on Amazing Race - it looked awesome!

Yep, I did it at Justin Herman Plaza on my lunch break! Not as cool as ziplining through rainforest, but still a fun, unique experience. :)
