The last time you whitewater rafted, your brother pushed you in (he claimed it was an accident). You might be a tad too old to seek revenge on said brother for his questionable actions... but you're never too old to get wet and wild on a whitewater rafting adventure. O.A.R.S., the preeminent whitewater rafting company on the west coast, offers a thrill-filled adventure down the South Fork of the American River.
Surprisingly close to San Francisco, this day trip through the rolling Sierra Foothills offers families, first-timers and large groups splashy, fun rapids through a beautiful corridor of rolling, wooded hills and rocky gorges. The Class III rapids are interspersed with languid sections of water where guests can drift, relax and enjoy the view...only to shortly face down more whitewater fun around the next bend. So grab a paddle and your brother (or not) and head out for a memorable trip - try not to fall in.
