River rafting adventures are great vacations for parents and teens. Float trips in moderate white water, class I to II rapids, require no experience or special skills. If you give teens a choice, they'll opt for the adrenaline sports, so consider a more intense whitewater trip with bigger thrills. The ultimate experience that combines both is a trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.
