60 to Escape - Winner of Top 10 Best Escape Rooms in the US!

If you've been following the blog, you probably already know how much I love escape rooms.  We've added it to our Top Rainy Day Date Ideas, and our Fall Bucket List for Couples.  If you've never done an Escape Room before, you should definitely check it out.  We do them all over...while we are on vacation, out visiting friends, or just want a fun date night around town.  Throughout our Escape Room experiences, we have found some rooms are very well put together, and some...well, not so much.  We have been to our fair share of good ones, and plenty of rooms that are sad excuses for an "Escape Room".  So, when we find awesome ones, we definitely want to share, so you can enjoy them as well.

Up, Up, and Away - Bucket list Orlando

Up, Up, and Away - Bucket list Orlando

I had always thought of hot air balloons as something out of a movie.  There’s something adventurous, magical, romantic about hot air balloons.  On very rare occasions, while I was growing up, we would see hot air balloons flying above our city, early on some Sunday mornings on our way to church.  They were always magical and so fun to watch.  The beautiful colors and patterns, and the way they just appear on some random mornings, and not seen again for a while later, are what made them so interesting.  It was something I had put on my bucket list…something I wanted to do one time in my life.  However, it had always seemed like a far fetched dream.  One of those “maybe one day” dreams.
