Palm Springs hot balloon rides that are guaranteed to spark the romance.

By Anita Draycott

Some say “love is in the air,” but in Greater Palm Springs, they mean it—literally. Your heart is sure to skip a beat (or two) as you launch into the heavens on a hot air balloon with Balloons Above. Pick a sunrise flight and you’ll be greeted by sherbet hues in the sky and mountains reminiscent of great works of art. Cozy up to your sweetheart as your basket drifts over lush date palm groves and sprawling polo fields, and enjoy the endless vistas that extend from one end of the valley to the other. When it comes to romantic adventures, the sky’s the limit.
