Up, Up, and Away!

Ever seen Los Angeles by Zeppelin? Me neither, but how cool does that sound? If you’ve been trying to find something fun and different to do in the next few days, this just might do the trick.

Airship Ventures is in town offering various L.A. tours by Zeppelin through this coming Tuesday, November 24th. The Bay Area-based company operates the only sightseeing airship in the United States and for the past year and a half, they have flown over the San Francisco Bay, the Monterey Coast, and L.A. At this past week’s Mindshare, one of company’s founders, Alexandra Hall said that due to the growing popularity of the Long Beach to Hollywood tours, Airship Ventures plans to spend nearly half of 2010 in Southern California. I’m really tempted to book a flight.

You don’t have to worry about another Hindenburg disaster as the Zeppelin is filled with non-flammable helium, not hydrogen. (Yes, all helium is non-flammable, but the company has to state the obvious for the general masses). You can read all about the specs of the ship, available tours, and the journey of getting this venture in the air at the company’s site.

Ticket are a little out of my price range, but imagine what an amazing journey you’d be taking. Booking information can be found here.

  1. Oh the humanity! J/k, this looks like fun, but a bit pricey for these depression times. Why doesn’t Goodyear outfit its blimps to do this? Then maybe we’d have some price-reducing competition.
