American Adventures Month

American Adventures Month-August 2023

Since we spend much time indoors in our homes and offices, we spend less time in nature and forget how the outside feels. American Adventures Month aims to encourage Americans to do something more adventurous and travel to understand different ways of living and appreciate humans' deep bond with nature. 


Peter Kulkkula, an American adventurer, founded American Adventures Month to promote vacationing in the Americas with the hope that this month would encourage explorers to visit the vast landscapes of the United States, North America, South America, and Central America.


Everyone needs a vacation occasionally to relieve us of the daily stress from being busy with work and family all year. When we adventure, we become more creative, endure more, have fun, and play within ourselves and our companions, and August is the perfect month to plan our next adventure. Take time off, enjoy the outdoors, and see what America offers. Besides being fun, traveling broadens your perspectives, challenges you to new experiences, and makes you appreciate your people and culture. Explore your town if you cannot reach a different art of America and August is the best moment before summer for you to go out.

     Adventure Industry Statistics

    Global adventure tourism’s market size in 2021 was valued at $282.1 billion and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 15.2% from 2022 to 2030. Due to the increased number of travelers in recent years, the adventure tourism industry witnessed substantial growth and related spending, driving the market demand. The rising levels of income and falling costs in aviation and accommodation led to a rise in international tourists to more than 1.5 billion by the end of 2019 from 680 million in 2000, according to the UN World Tourism Organization statistics and IMF staff calculations.
