Is seeing the world from a panoramic, 3,000 foot floating perch not your thing? Maybe being in an enclosed helicopter will do. For those couples who are feeling particularly adventurous, you may want to look into sky diving packages. This may be something you’ve always dreamt of doing but didn’t know who to invite along.  Now is the perfect time to ask your partner! Remember to purchase a video to recount your moment in flight for years to come.

If being in the open sky doesn’t feel safe enough, tall and towering skyscrapers provide views and experiences that give you the best of both worlds. There are usually wonderful restaurants and bars on top, like the Seattle Space Needle’s Sky City, and 230 Fifth’s Rooftop Garden in New York City. Enjoy a quick bite or cocktail while taking in the cityscape, especially at night as the lights illuminate around you. If you don’t live near a city, go on a hike to the tallest summit you can stomach.
