Rotorzen instills students with the skills and savvy needed to command the open-air cockpit of a powered parachute. Certified instructors nurse knowledge over 60 minutes of pre-flight training, teaching aspiring daredevils how to handle instrumentation and sneak up on cirrus clouds from behind. Students next take to the skies for 30 minutes of turbine-charged cruising as they skim over and sail through the air above the Lansing Municipal Airport. Flight lessons depend upon wind conditions and are offered Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, Saturday evenings, and Sunday mornings. While powered parachutes accommodate only one pilot at a time, individuals can bring along fellow flyers to join in on the acrobatic antics. All flight time can be applied toward FAA sport pilot certification and subsequent opportunities to tickle the moon into sneezing green cheese.

Ask an out-of-towner what they want to do when they visit Chicago, and they'll probably tell you they want to chow down on some deep-dish pizza. Chicago Pizza Tours owner and pizza aficionado Jonathan Porter leads parties on treks to some of the Windy City's most celebrated pizzerias with three different pie-themed tours. Guests sample Chicago's signature style with the deep-dish only holiday walking tour, enjoy slices with sides of adult beverages during pizza and cocktails outings, or visit the kitchens of four different restaurants during the original tour. Each outing takes visitors to local favorites across a wide range of styles and cuisines, from the caramelized thick crusts of Pequod's, the stuffed pies of Bacino's, or the Neapolitan-style creations of Spacca Napoli.

Recently, Jonathan Porter has teamed up with local writer and tour guide Jonathan Knotek to launch Chicago Prohibition Tours, a romp through some of Chicago's most famous speakeasies still in existence. During the 3.5-hour bus trip through the roaring '20s and beyond, guests can visit the old one-time haunts of gangsters and crooked pols, such as the Green Door Tavern or the Exchequer Restaurant and Pub, all while sipping popular cocktails from almost 100 years ago and communicating only through silent-film title cards.

How many manmade buildings can you think of that have survived for more than 2,500 years? The Great Wall of China is impressive for many reasons, but top on that list has to be its longevity—some sections date as far back as the seventh century BC, so long ago that a major reconstruction was needed by the time the Ming dynasty rolled around in 1368 AD. Today, much of the wall stands as always has. It courses east to west across the green mountains and running rivers of northern China for some 5,500 miles. You’ll see the monumental Great Wall on Nexus Holidays Toronto’s 10-day guided tour of China, and it’s just one small part of the tour, which stops in five cities and includes round-trip airfare.Click here for a sample itinerary of the trip. Click here for a list of departure dates.Days 1–4: After departing from a gateway city on the West Coast of America on an economy-class flight, you’ll touch down in Beijing. Once on the ground, say nǐ hǎo to your English-speaking tour guide before transferring to the regal Jade Palace Hotel, which is situated in Zhongguancun, known as the “Silicon Valley of China.” The next three days are jam-packed with sightseeing excursions: you’ll see Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Temple of Heaven, another relic from the Ming dynasty. A trip to the Great Wall is the highlight of day 4; your tour group will also spend some time checking out the Olympic Village, which includes Bird’s Nest stadium and Water Cube.Days 5–6: The trip moves on to Hangzhou, a city known to Chinese poets as “Paradise on Earth.” You’ll cruise West Lake, renowned for its natural scenery and ancient pagodas, before taking in the pleasant sights and smells of a green-tea plantation. The 3,000-year-old city of Wuxi is your destination on the next day, where you’ll pay a visit to the Grand Buddha at Ling Shan. This iconic statue stands 88 meters high and weighs more than 700 tons, which puts it on the shortlist as one of the largest Buddha sculptures in the world and, whenever anyone places a magazine under it, the world’s largest paperweight. Days 7–10: The last days of the trip are split between the city of Suzhou and metropolitan Shanghai. Suzhou is known as the “Venice of the East” for its 1,500-year-old Grand Canal and interlocking waterways. While here, you’ll take a stroll through the Master of the Nets Garden, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Designed to evoke the peaceful, simple life of a fisherman, it’s a meticulous display of unique water features and nature scenes.Your tour of Shanghai begins with a trip to the Bund, a waterfront district lined with shops and varied architecture influenced by former European occupiers; its building styles range from Romanesque to Gothic to Beaux-Arts. Later, you’ll enjoy more than 120,000 curated treasures on display at the Shanghai Museum. Following breakfast on day 10, you’ll depart Shanghai for your return flight home.
