Each Groupon covers one person's flight, so couples, triplets, and ventriloquists need to purchase one Groupon per rider. Though pricing for the sunrise flight varies throughout the week, this Groupon is valid any day including weekends. Participants in the winery tour need to be 21+ with valid ID, and the age minimum for the sunrise flight is five years old. Both journeys lift off from Maurice Car'rie Winery in Temecula.
Eureka is a fitting name for Airship Venture's 246-foot-long zeppelin, an astounding aeronautical innovation. Longer than a Boeing 747, the gentle behemoth takes to the skies after filling its hull with nonflammable helium gas. The great ship is run by husband-and-wife team Brian and Alex Hall, who channeled their entrepreneurial spirit and love of aeronautics into the US's first and only zeppelin. The airship soars over San Francisco regularly on tours of the city and surrounding area, and can even do long-distance flights to Los Angeles, the Sonoma Valley, or Never Never Land. Intrigued passengers can also take the ground tour to see the zeppelin and its inner workings up close.

In 1782 the Montgolfier brothers launched their first hot air balloon into the sky, where it rose to great heights before exploding. More changes were made—and promises to their father they would not personally fly in it—before they made their next attempt. A year later, three unlikely substitutes boarded the silk balloon: a sheep, a duck, and a chicken. The flight, witnessed by King Louis XVI, was a success, and the passengers returned safely. From that point on, countless inventors would make modifications until hot air ballooning became the safe and scenic trip it is today.
California Balloon Rides continues the tradition in balloon rides over Temecula, Perris, Del Mar and Palm Springs. Passengers simply show up at the designated time—typically early morning—and help prepare the balloon and basket, then sit back and enjoy the trip above the beautiful Southern California landscape. A “chase crew” picks clients up at the end of the flight and returns them to the launch site for a champagne toast.
When the Fun Corner first opened its doors in 1956, it was actually located on the corner of the block. In 1980, it moved to its current location in the middle of the block. Locale aside, the Fun Corner still does today what it's been doing for the last fifty seven years: slinging costumes and novelty décor year-round. Today, it stocks approximately 5,000 different outfits—which range in size from newborn to plus-sized grownup—in addition to an arsenal of accessories, props, Halloween décor, hats, and wigs.
The staffers don't just sell new looks, however—they also help create them. On-staff makeup artists assist in making skin look appropriately ghoulish for a costume party or a formal undertaker's ball. They also teach customers techniques for easy replication at home.
Commercial pilots certified by the Federal Aviation Administration welcome guests to tours of Southern California aboard hot air balloons. As guests enter into sheared baskets, the pilots offer them complimentary champagne and non-alcoholic beverages before taking off. Sightseeing trips include flights over Temecula Wine Country at sunrise as well as romantic rides along the Pacific coast at sunset.
