There are few freedoms as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans spent millennia inventing the helicopter and why penguins are so very, very bitter. Exceed evolutionary shortcomings with today’s Groupon: for $299, you get a South Beach helicopter adventure for three from Miami Nice Tours (a $600 value).
Miami Nice Tours' experienced pilots escort patrons on a 15-minute helicopter tour of South Beach, introducing guests to bird's-eye views of Miami's landmarks and awe-inspiring scenery. Gliding hundreds of feet above Miami's urban landscape, trios will gaze down upon lavish oceanfront estates and eccentric millionaires playing chicken with their yachts. The hovering cruise begins at Hallandale Beach, cruising over Sunny Isle, Surfside, Bal Harbor, and South Beach to catch views of the flourishing Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, the tourist district Coconut Grove, and the Dinner Key Marina complex (tour path may vary with weather conditions). The aerial outing then heads back to Hallandale Beach, catching a mixture of urban and oceanic vistas more breathtaking than a tickle fight in a vacuum.
