Do you love riding the waves on your Jet Ski? Or would you rather tear through a snowy hill on a snowmobile? Regardless of your power sport of choice, there are plenty of locations across the United States for each type of power sport. Read on to find out what the best states are for personal watercrafts, snowmobiles, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles.
1. Personal watercraft – Whether you have a Jet Ski, Sea-Doo, Waverunner or other type of personal watercraft (PWC), these recreational water vehicles are a great way to enjoy a lake or ocean. Depending on how smooth you want the ride to be, you may choose a calmer body of water – like a lake – over tumultuous ocean waves. You can enjoy your PWC virtually anywhere with a body of water that permits watercrafts.
2. Snowmobile – To take full advantage of your snowmobile, venture to a region with a snow-heavy climate. Some of the best snowmobiling states include Montana (check out West Yellowstone, known as the “Snowmobiling Capital of the World”), Idaho, Wisconsin, Michigan and Maine. And don’t forget to protect yourself and your snowmobile with snowmobile insurance. Look for snowmobile insurance discounts to find an affordable option that will keep you safe the on the trails.
3. All-terrain vehicles – Commonly known as ATVs, all-terrain vehicles are great in all climates. For a one-of-a-kind ATV experience, consider attending an ATV festival. Several states that offer all-terrain vehicle jamborees include Idaho, Nevada, Nebraska, Utah and West Virginia.
4. Motorcycles – According to a recent motorcycling study by reuters.com, there are over 10 million motorcycles owned and used in the United States. And motorcycles can ride almost anywhere a car can. Join thousands of other motorcycle fans at one of the many bike rallies in the U.S. A few options include Daytona Bike Week in Florida, Laconia Motorcycle Week in New Hampshire and Laughlin River Run in Colorado.
Whether you love all-terrain vehicles or have a passion for motorcycles, power sports are a great way to get active and enjoy the outdoors. Different locations across the U.S. offer the ideal experience for each type of power sport – and plenty of festivals, too. Enjoy your adventure, and don’t forget to pack the sunscreen or snow parka.
