1. Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, CA (14-16 miles roundtrip)
This hike takes our breath away, literally. Once you make your way up the 400-foot metal cables, step out onto the “diving board,” and look 4,800 feet straight down to the valley floor below.
2. Manoa Falls, Honolulu, HI (1.8 miles roundtrip)
We know, we know… tropical vacations are for lounging by the pool and taking sunset cruises, but there’s more to Hawaii than turquoise beaches and mai tais, namely awesome views and vistas reachable only by foot.
