For a totally different perspective, consider an aerial tour of the Georgia Mountains. These customized rides in a helicopter, airplane, seaplane, or even a hot air balloon will be a thrilling experience like no other.

Many of the flights are available from the North metro Atlanta area which is a very short flight to the mountains. You’ll be able to watch the geography change from the gentle rolling hills in the city to the bigger mountains in the foothills of the Appalachians.

Be sure to check Groupon as there are occasionally discounted rides available!
