Hot-Air Balloon ride anyone?

If you thought hot-air balloon rides were just for Dorothy, think again. It’s a great time of year to get up above the trees and experience what the residents of Oz could only dream of. I have never personally been, but I would love to try this newly popular experience. Do you think you or your Au Pair would love to try this? And really, what better way to see our beautiful country but from above?

What could be more exhilarating than soaring through the sky with fields and forests beneath you and the wind carrying you through the atmosphere? Float on the breeze while viewing the world from a whole new vantage point. Hot-air balloon rides are available in every state, bringing together the beauty of nature and love of adventure while honoring the early days of flight technology. Bring along a topographical map of the area and a compass to better identify landmarks and regions below. You can even create an aerial scrapbook of your journey by taking photographs from mid-air. This is an experience you won’t forget. Go to to learn about ballooning and find a ride near you with minimum age requirements.
