See Washington, DC like never before!


Nothing you’ve seen before can be quite like the Chesapeake Bay at sunrise, from the vantage point of about 1,000 feet above ground. During your Washington, DC hot air balloon ride, you’ll drift above the surrounding landscape, with sky-high views of wildlife and treetops, and possibly even lock eyes with a bird as it soars past. Our hot air balloon launch site is situated in a location convenient to Washington, DC’s most important landmarks. While you’re here, you can stand before the expansive lawn of the White House, stroll along the National Mall, and immerse yourself in the fragrance of the Japanese cherry trees surrounding the Jefferson Memorial.

Also nearby are the city’s illustrious museums. Plan to enrich your knowledge of history at such esteemed institutions as the Smithsonian, the National Air and Space Museum, and the National Museum of African American History. In Washington, DC, as you may know, we do experience typical seasonal weather. The best times for hot air balloon rides are spring and summer, but especially autumn, when we have little rain and the changing leaves make the surrounding areas brilliant with color. Instead of a stroll through the park, imagine the vantage point of a hot air balloon ride to admire the fall colors.

We lift off every day, as long as the weather permits, allowing our guests to catch the changing skies at sunset or sunrise.
