The air up there
If hurtling through the skies over Connecticut doesn’t exactly fit your criteria of “vacation,” well, that’s understandable. Still, few thrills can be more exhilarating than sky diving, and Skydive Danielson aims to make it as simple as possible. Of course, it’s a little more involved than simply jumping out of a plane. But after just 20 minutes of instruction, you and a trained sky diver will be ready to emerge and float amid the summer clouds. Tandem jumps start at $195. Group rates also available.
