Hot air balloon rides are an incredible experience. For travelers looking to fill their lives with meaningful experiences, look no further than a hot air balloon ride. It’s an indescribable feeling to be lifted above the ground, admiring the scenery from below. Many who partake in the activity have nothing but amazing things to say. Being that this activity is expensive, it’s important to pick the best place to do it. If someone is only able to do it once, they may as well do it as best as they can. Choosing a destination also depends on the person and what they’re looking to see from that height. Some want to look out into a field while others what to see mountains in the distance.

These hot air balloon rides are spectacular. Albuquerque, New Mexico, is known as the ballooning capital of the world due to its international balloon fiesta. From up in the sky, visitors can see the city, the Rio Grande, Sandia Crest and the desert. Visitors can also take hot air balloon rides at different times of the day, including a special sunrise balloon ride in the Rockies and the equally unforgettable sunset hot air balloon ride.

Vermont is another great place to go on a hot air balloon ride. The balloon rides in Vermont will allow visitors to get unparalleled views of the rolling hills and the Quechee Gorge, better known as “Vermont’s Mont Grand Canyon.” Visitors to Vermont will be able to see the accompanying river and picturesque bridge that spans the gorge. It’s a special and memorable hot air balloon ride that adventure seekers will not want to miss out on.
