The maps drawn by early North American explorers were humorously inaccurate, dotted with fountains of youth, fields of gold, and rock formations in the shape of Amerigo Vespucci’s cat. Rediscover your surroundings with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get a romantic sightseeing flight for two, including complimentary champagne, from ATA Flight School, taking off daily from North Perry Airport, located in Pembroke Pines (a $413.39 value).
Departing 30 minutes before sunset and landing 30 minutes after, ATA’s Romance Tour whisks happy couples and committed bromances away on a scenic, guided air tour of the skies over Miami. After watching the sunset gild the Everglades, planes follow beach stragglers toward burgeoning nightlife by passing over an illuminated Miami, South Beach, and Star Island after dark. Ideal for a wedding proposal, first date, or surveillance mission on the family dog, the Romance Tour also includes premium champagne for passengers to sip liberally on as they cruise.
ATA’s fleet of high-wing observation aircraft offers unimpeded window views filled with splendid vistas and marathon staring contests with migrating waterfowl. A reservation is required for all tours, and flights may be rescheduled in the event of severe weather or to wait for a more romantic rainstorm.
