Get Your Head in the Clouds…And Your Body in a Hot Air Balloon!
Have you ever wanted to go up in a hot air balloon? Well, you’re in luck, because living in Hamilton County is like living in hot air balloon central! It’s actually the best county for hot air ballooning in the STATE! Bet you didn’t know that one!
Many times when you raise your eyes to the sky, you’re sure to see one of these colorful balloons! Many people are moving to the great city of Carmel to be closer to the balloon sites, especially enthusiasts. They’ve even formed a tight knit group of pilots and riders.
When it comes to balloon rides, Hamilton County is particularly desirable because it has land that has been cleared for development but is not completely built out, which makes for good launching and landing sites. It also makes for very beautiful scenery when you’re thousands of feet in the air.
If you’ve never been in a hot air balloon before, it’s definitely a breathtaking experience. Even if you have a fear of heights, this is a great way to get over your fear! The Montgolfier Society of Indiana is a great place to start if you’d like to book a hot air balloon ride. And if you’re looking to become a pilot, that’s a great place to start as well.
