You will never forget your first zip line experience, harnessed in and safe as you soar over the treetops.Mindy and I took our first zip line tour on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia at 'Treetop Adventure Park.' I remember the adrenaline rush of being airborne over a gorgeous St. Lucia forest. You don't need to take a St. Lucia vacation to experience the thrill of a zip line adventure. Check out these Connecticut zip lines.
