Abstract

Outdoor Adventures will be a free website that provides the average person with the tools and information needed to plan and personalize outdoor adventures. Many people want to experience natures’ playground, but don’t know where to start. Solving this problem, Outdoor Adventures will be the first comprehensive site that provides a one stop “information shop”, giving any site visitor the tools, advice, ratings, and ideas that they need in order to plan an adventure. This website will have cheap startup costs, and will create large monetary return from advertisements, as well as encourage social health and wellness. Users can simply search by location or adventure type and find hundreds of companies, guide services, national parks, and other adventure destinations. Along with these finds are personal ratings and comments that members of Outdoor Adventures have posted, that provide users with unbiased evaluations and reviews of each company or experience. While Outdoor Adventures helps users find companies and agencies, it helps users create their own trips as well. By simply entering the type of trip they want to make (hiking, backpacking, kayaking, rock climbing), and where, Outdoor Adventures provides information for every aspect of a desired trip. What clothing is recommended, what gear is needed, what rations are required, maps, directions and weather forecasts are all included for site users. Along with many other features, Outdoor Adventures is a fun, interactive website that allows users to get inspired, and get outdoors!
