If you’ve exhausted nearly every date idea on the ground, take to the skies for the ultimate romantic outing in LA. Don’t tell your sweetie what you have in store, because the look of surprise you’ll see as you pull up to the helipad will be priceless. In fact, words are all but useless, as the view from the helicopter says it all. Together you’ll soar like eagles, swooping above the Hollywood Sign and following the majestic shorelines of Santa Monica Beach and Pacific Palisades, with all of California on one side and the churning waters of the Pacific on the other. This is the kind of lofty show of love that is usually limited to the movies, but in LA, where the line between fantasy and reality is often hazy, such a grand statement is more than possible. Orbic Air offers a variety of helicopter tours, from quick trips over the Getty Center to mountain-top landing tours including a picnic. Watch your honey’s face when the helicopter lands on the plateau of a mountaintop, where a lover’s picnic is laid out waiting for you. Enveloped by the rich blue of Malibu Bay below, enjoy your elevated solitude over a bottle of champagne and strawberries, sealing a romantic moment that you’ll never forget.
