Jumping out of a plane might not be everyone’s idea of a fun afternoon, but there are some upsides to freefalling around 100 mph at about 12,500 feet in the air. Since almost 2 million people skydive each year, there has to be a reason why it’s so popular. There are some pretty amazing places to go skydiving in the world. Here are some amazing skydiving locations and why you need to take the plunge (literally) and fall out of the sky.
