HOT AIR BALLOONING IS GOING TO LOOK AND FEEL UNIQUE FROM EVERY OTHER EXPERIENCE IN THE SKY.
Hot air balloon rides occur at two times of day, dawn and dusk. Both scheduled times of day assure that it won't be too heated and it's tough not to enjoy a view like that. For the night owls in the world, the flights at sunset normally go on two or three hours before sunset.

Now in case you are wondering, balloons don't exactly follow a specific route. What you can count on though is being up in the sky for about an hour, making it somewhere between 2 and 5 miles from where you launched.
