Get ready to break out your adventure pants, because you’re gonna need them. The Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area (or the AHRA, for those who love abbreviations) is the Queen/King Bee of whitewater rafting and kayaking. Heck, it’s the most commercially rafted river in this grand country of ours. That’s good news for beginners and experts alike—there’s tons of outfitters to help you plan a trip, no matter how experienced you might be. The Arkansas River ranges from cool, calm, and collected to absolutely bananas (b-a-n-a-n-a-s). There’s 150 miles of river to explore, and you’ll be surrounded by massive mountains, deep canyons, and peaceful valleys as you cruise down the river. From Leadville to Pueblo, there are tons of mountain towns overflowing with personality along the way

Not a fan of rapids? No biggie, because there’s plenty of other activities to keep you occupied. Fishing, hiking, camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, and gold panning are all fair game. If you strike it rich, you’ll share... right?
