Whoever said off-roading isn’t a great idea for a family getaway needs to reconsider what it means to have fun. After all, there is only so much Disney world, amusement parks, trips to the beach and other mundane adventures a family can endure.
If you are an off-road enthusiast that wants to take the family out into the wilds and show them the pure joy of adrenaline, we have a couple of places you should check out in the United States. Just make sure you own a 4×4 vehicle like a Jeep Wrangler, which can be found at local dealers like Springfield Jeep in Pennsylvania, and have some some off-roading experience under your belt.
It’s worth pointing out that just owning a Jeep doesn’t make it a true off-roading machine. You really need to look into a lift and other parts to make sure it is fitted properly to take on challenging terrain.
If you want to brush up on your off-roading, we recommend checking out some local Jeep clubs, or 4×4 clubs.
That out of the way, let’s take a look at a couple of places you should consider taking your family:
