Despite their glamorous appeal, hot air balloons were once used for more tactical purposes, as scheming generals flew them over enemy flanks to get a leg up in battle. But with today's deal from Asheville-based R.O.Franks Hot Air Balloon Company, the only thing you'll be battling is the urge to scream, "I'm on top of the world!" For $125 (regularly $250), reserve a 45- to 60-minute sunrise flight over western North Carolina, along with a champagne toast upon landing. Let pilot Addison Brown flex his 15 years of flight experience as he points out historic landmarks and provides insight into the state's ancient topography. Join other passengers as you meet in the early morning at the Grove Arcade, taking off to reach an altitude of 500 to 2,000 feet above ground. It'll be an unforgettable experience -- and we promise we're not just blowing hot air.
