The need to feel the wind in your hair is best fulfilled by skydiving, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Aerate your hair in the wild blue yonder with this Groupon.
$155 for One Tandem Skydive with Photos ($289 Value)
Tandem skydivers pose for a photo before making the 15-minute voyage to 11,000 feet. Strapped to an experienced instructor, divers free fall for about a minute, enjoying an amazing view of vistas spanning from Philadelphia to Washington DC as they plummet at 120 miles per hour. After the chute is pulled and a successful landing made, the pairs take an after-jump picture, revealing windswept hair, excitement-flushed cheeks, and the respectful nods of passing birds.
For a company that has pushed more than 1.5 million people out of planes during the course of 38 years, Skydive Baltimore enjoys a top-notch reputation among adrenaline-seeking sky travelers. Tandem skydivers pair off with their trusty instructor before ascending to 11,000 feet, taking in views of Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay as they discover what gravity feels like 2 miles above the ground. Divers can commemorate their jumps with video and photographic evidence captured by their instructor, a third jumper, or a borrowed spy satellite.
