Have you ever gone ziplining? Gotten back on a bike after 25 years? Kayaked with alligators? There are plenty of great adventures to be had on the Gulf Coast so pick something that makes you scared and just do it. Take a swamp tour in Louisana, paddle in Mississippi, and fly through the air in Alabama.
