Airplanes offer views that could only otherwise be attained by planting a magical beanstalk and waiting until it grows large enough to build you a biplane. Eschew mutant flora with today's Groupon: for $195, you get open-cockpit biplane rides for two from Far West Aviation in Santa Teresa (a $325 value). This takes the form of two half-hour, one-at-a-time rides.

Soaring high above the verdant Mesilla Valley, Far West Aviation's affectionately named biplane, Tillie, whisks her decades-tested pilot and one windswept passenger at a time on a personalized aerial tour. From the seat of a refitted red-and-yellow-checkered WWII training plane, passengers gape at stunning views of the Franklin Mountains, snapping photographs of the landscape and even their own homes, pending air-traffic-control approval. Passengers should arrive 30 minutes before takeoff to fill out the necessary forms and test-flap their arms to make sure they don't already possess the power of flight.
