How about some hiking, history, and horseback riding along one of the great American Rivers? In the southwest corner of Nebraska, beside the mighty Missouri River, sits a state park worthy of a day trip or an entire weekend visit. Indian Cave State Park gets it's name...

Hiking up waterfalls seems to be a particularly Caribbean pastime. In Jamaica, the best known waterfall hike is Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios. Being on the north side of island near Montego Bay means the falls get a lot of tourists. For a similar, some would argue be...
