The state of Maryland is so epically beautiful that it's hard to narrow down a list of locations we would recommend any tourist or visitor make sure to catch a glimpse of while visiting here, but we came up with a few and listed some of our favorites here:
If you have never heard mention of any of these places or if you know nothing of the state of Maryland, let us assure you, it's breathtaking. With coastlines to the East and mountains to the West, there's no way you can go wrong observing the natural beauty of this state, and there's no more efficient and remarkable way to do so then from hundreds of feet in the air on a flight in a hot air balloon.
A hot air balloon flight provides an ideal way to see the natural attractions and community landmarks, as well as the outlying areas and countryside from a unique perspective. The balloon floats gracefully above the earth and allows you to view the landscape without impediments to your eyeline and loud noisy distractions typically found within other modes of sightseeing. And the sensations you’ll experience throughout are awesome too.
If the idea of a ride in a hot air balloon intrigues you, give us a call today, you won’t be disappointed you did.
BECAUSE TRAVELLING IN A HOT AIR BALLOON IS SO DIFFERENT FROM OTHER METHODS OF FLIGHT TODAY, IT WILL DIFFER FROM EVERY OTHER ADVENTURE YOU CAN HAVE IN THE SKY.
Hot air balloon rides happen at two times of day, dawn and dusk. At these times it won't be too heated outside and the view will be that much more incredible. For the night owls out there, the flights at dusk usually go on two or three hours before dusk.
ALL THINGS AROUND YOU, EVEN YOUR MEANS OF LIFT, IS AIR.
As soon as you are flying you will find yourself anywhere somewhere between 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. Sometimes, if the weather is just right, your pilot can take you up as high as 10.000 feet. Because you find yourself in a balloon, this adventure doesn't truly have a particular destination. What you can expect though is being up in the sky for approximately an hour, making it somewhere between 2 and 5 miles from where you began.
This adventure is all about you, so you can only assume the best from us. Our captains are professionals, guaranteed. Each accredited pilot with Maryland Balloon Rides is a professional accredited by the Federal Aviation Administration.
Leaving behind the ground in a hot air balloon is a trip into pure fantasy. To this day, you can still feel the moment of magic that initially brought man's fantasy of flight into reality.

Over the scenic landscape that only Maryland can deliver, you are free.

The very first story of man reaching the sky was in a balloon. From the very first flight in the 1700's, hot air balloons have stood the test of time.
A great deal may have changed in the past centuries, but hot air balloons are still pretty simple. A substantial, colorful balloon is above, containing air heated by burners.
There are all sorts of balloons for every type of adventure. Hot air balloons are quite accommodating too, having the capacity to transport as many as 16 people in one flight. However, balloons will typically accommodate 4, 8, 10, and 12 people at a time.
Balloons filled with hot air is a rather unique way to fly, and the way it works is in fact pretty neat. The reason you get to enjoy a relaxing and wonderful view from up above is simply because cool air is denser than hot. When the balloon is loaded with hot air it is lifted into the sky by the cool air all around it. Thanks to this you can literally hover on air.READ MORE
