When it comes to sight seeing, there are few methods more thrilling than a hot air balloon ride.

After lifting off using a burner to heat the air, the only thing separating you from the ground is a basket and a couple thousand feet. Drifting with the whim of the wind, most trips will have you floating for about an hour and you never quite know where you’ll land.

Hot air balloon rides are awesome adventures and they’re at the top of many bucket lists. There’s arguably no better time to go than in the fall when you can soar over treetops of changing colors and get a peak at wildlife preparing for winter.

When you’re ready to take off on your hot air adventure, head to one of the best destinations in the U.S. for top-notch adventure with an unbeatable view.
