From affordable to once-in-a-lifetime, the adventures you’ve been seeking are closer than you think. 1 If a Huey or Cobra helicopter ride is on your bucket list, then look no further. The Army Aviation Heritage Foundation & Flying Museum offers rides in Vietnam-era helicopters. Don’t forget to book in advance. 2 Be WOWed! Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary offers guests the opportunity to take a “Walk on the Wild Side.” This tour provides an exclusive, behind-the-scenes experience filled with stories about the animal residents and a chance to get up close and personal with some of your favorites. 3 Tour Hampton’s Walkin’ DEAD filming locations on a 14-stop walking tour. This hourlong storytelling stroll through historic downtown Hampton is led by a knowledgeable guide who will share photos and stories from behind the scenes. The tour starts at the Speakeasy Bookstore. 4 Do you dream of being able to slip on a firesuit just like your favorite NASCAR driver? Atlanta Motor Speedway hosts multiple driving school companies that offer the option of either being driven around the lightningfast 1.54-mile quad oval or taking the wheel yourself at speeds in excess of 150 mph. 5 Spend a tranquil night in the canopy of a 200-yearold Southern red oak as you lie in a “tree-boat” at Panola Mountain State Park, viewing stars and the moon. To get prepared for the 50-foot climb into that tree-boat, or if the idea of a night in a tree is a little too adventurous, Intro to Tree Climbing programs are offered once a month. 6 Get better acquainted with the Southeast’s largest event facility. Tour an Atlanta Motor Speedway suite, take a sneak peek at the garages and Victory Lane, and finish the tour with three exhilarating laps in the Speedway van around the same 1.54-mile track.
