Cruise Through the Clouds
Hot-Air Ballooning {Napa Valley}

It’s a picturesque scene, hot air balloons over scenic Napa Valley, the vibrantly colored material of the balloons dotting the skyline. In the baskets, you are able to access some of the Valley’s most exclusive vantage points and can leisurely glide along the landscape as the sun comes over the horizon. What better way to end your sunrise journey than with a champagne brunch, where you can soak in the beauty that is Napa.

Helicopter Ride {The Grand Canyon}

The setting sun will illuminate the rocks around the Grand Canyon’s west rim as your luxury helicopter circles this national landmark. Touching down cliffside, you will be treated to an elegant dining experience: a table set with linens, fine china, adorned with flowers. Your gourmet dinner is served and you dine as the last rays of light filter over the Canyon. As you leave and are flown back to base, you can be assured you had the best seat in the house.

Skydiving {San Diego}

Plunging towards the Earth at 120 miles per hour is described as one of the most freeing feelings in the world, because if you can take on that, you can take on anything. Those 45 seconds of free fall are unlike anything you have ever experienced, and when it is finally time to open up your parachute, you will be able to view the world from an entirely new perspective. Floating gently back down to the ground, you will be able to take in the breathtaking landscape, and as you touch down, you’ll want to get right back up and do it again.
