This Central Massachusetts outdoor center is one-stop shopping for outdoor excitement. Zoar started out leading rafting and canoeing trips on the Deerfield and other nearby rivers — and it still does. But it has also recent added a canopy tour that is one of the best in New England. Guides stress the educational aspect of local fauna and foliage, but there is plenty of hair-raising excitement on 11 zips, two sky bridges, and three rappels. Some canoeing trips cater to kids as young as 5, while some whitewater excursions will challenge teens and adults; minimum age for ziplining is 10.
