UP IN THE AIR


If a helicopter isn’t your thing, experience Vegas from a bird’s-eye view with a hot-air balloon ride. The journey begins just before sunrise around 5:30 a.m.  The company offers a hotel shuttle service to the launch site to get riders there on time. (And for the caffeine cravers, Starbucks is right around the corner.)
Travelers watch the 10-story-high balloon inflate before climbing aboard to ascend 2,500 feet in the air. Having reached cruising height, guests take in spectacular views of the Strip, desert and surrounding valleys. Flights generally last around an hour, but because the wind is the real pilot, the length may vary, but all trips conclude with a Champagne toast back on the ground. — Sarah Tooker
