Hot Air Balloon Rides in New York State & How to Make The Most of Them

The Virtuous Vee

Most people describe the sensation of hot air balloon rides like being weightless. The balloon floats as if by magic and drifts under the influence of the wind, making it a unique experience. In fact, one of the inventors of the hot air balloon, Joseph Montgolfier, described the craft as “a cloud in a paper bag”.

If you ever decide on such an adventure, here in New York State, consider this list of hot air balloon offers.
