Plymouth, MI (PRWEB) October 04, 2003
Forget the necktie and socks for dad this Father's Day, instead FLY him over Michigan in a beautiful hot air balloon. It's the perfect gift because it's an "experience" gift.
"A balloon flight is the perfect way to see the fall colors says Scott Lorenz, President and Chief Pilot of Westwind Balloon Company of Plymouth, Michigan, it does not get any better."
"The palate of colors just takes your breath away," says Mike Ball, crewman and sometimes passenger, "I love taking photos from the balloon especially when we fly over Kensington Park, it's fabulous, it's ten times better than driving. People just have no idea how pretty it is."
According to Lorenz, "Nobody forgets their first balloon flight. It is truly an experience that cannot compare to anything else. The sensation of flying over trees, lakes and streams, spotting deer and other wildlife is unique and inspiring."
"It's a perfect gift too because when a gift touches someone both emotionally and on a multi-sensory level people remember who gave it to them. If you really want to make a lasting impression, says Lorenz, a hot air balloon ride over the fall colors of Michigan is the ultimate 'unforgettable' gift. "
The balloon flight costs $695.00 for two people.
