$269 for a Hot Air Balloon Ride for Two ($450 Value)

About a 30-minute drive from Boston, A&A Balloon Rides elevates passengers in semiprivate hot air ballon rides. After preflight safety training, paired passengers ascend up to 2,000 feet in the air for a one-hour balloon ride. Passengers take in aerial views of the surrounding land and mountains before alighting on the ground for a champagne toast with crackers and cheese.

On his way to work one day, Andre Boucher spotted a hot air balloon, and on a whim he decided to follow it. He met it where it landed, and the aircraft's pilot offered to take Andre up for a ride. Ever since he was young, Andre had been fascinated by aviation, but airsickness and a codependent relationship with gravity always prevented him from enjoying it firsthand. But as he felt the basket drifting with the wind instead of battling against it, Andre knew he had finally found a way to experience flight. He has since acquired more than 23 years of professional experience, even lending his expertise to an elaborate promotional flight for Pixar's balloon-based film Up.

Andre now captains A&A Balloon Rides, LLC, where colorful carriages lift patrons between 500 and 2,000 feet above the lakes, treetops, and fields of New Hampshire. Guests can arrange for group flights and set up flown or tethered rides for school events, company picnics, or aerial-photography sessions, the latter of which can finally prove that birds fly on hoverboards.

This was an absolutely DELIGHTFUL experience!!!! Andre was humorous, pleasant, allowed us to fully participate in the balloon "experience" and was MORE than competent in the caring/safety for all of us on the flight.
