Creative Date Idea – Helicopter Ride


(Online Dating Newsletter) Imagine literally whisking your date off her/his feet by surprising them with a helicopter tour of your city or local landmark. A helicopter ride can be an exciting adventure for you and your date to share. While they tend to be on the expensive side, it may be worth it to take this once-in-a-lifetime sightseeing tour. Exciting experiences always have a lasting impact on those that participate in them and a helicopter tour is a fun and unique way to get to know a city from a different perspective.

Helicopter rides are available in most major cities and over many landmark areas. You and your date can take a private aerial tour of downtown Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, or Las Vegas, just to name a few. Vacation spots also typically offer helicopter rides. Niagara Falls helicopter rides give an up close and personal look at the giant waterfalls while Hawaii offers tours over active volcanoes. Other unique spots that offer Helicopter tours are Mount Saint Helens, the Grand Canyon, and the Statue of Liberty. Check your area to see what is offered or try this date idea out while on vacation.

    I also wish to go for a helicopter ride, I haven’t been in one till date and feel that every couple should also experience it.

    I would like to go to african safari, I love to see wild animals with safety ofcourse.

    This date sounds expensive ! its not for those whom like to penny pinch. Call me cautious but I for one would like to have gone on more than one date with the person before taking out the cash for this date. Perhaps not one for a first date however if you are a millionare why not !

    The cost really does limit this date idea for most people, or at least makes it something you wait to do until you have a solid relationship with someone.

    Though with the economy taking a hit you may be able to barter or haggle for a better deal. Or you may be able to make it a double date so you can share the expense with someone else.
