Since man began to walk upright, we’ve envisioned ourselves taking that next step: flight. But, let’s face it, flying lessons can be as lengthy as they are costly. You want to be with the birds right now. Instead of donning a leather bomber jacket, you strap on your nylon “wings” and settle into the bench in the aircraft’s cargo bay. Today, you skydive.
You’re not much of a bucket list person; you never have been and don’t intend to start now. But, just on the other side of Mt. San Jacinto from the mid-century Rat Pack hideaways, hotels in Perris, CA put you in the middle of skydive country. Not only will your concierge be able to find you a great deal on a package to make your dream a reality, you can also secure a rental car in Perris to serve as your last terrestrial conveyance before you become one with the stratosphere. To float high above the world—while simultaneously reaching terminal velocity and remaining seemingly motionless—delivers a sense of awe and freedom. Spread your limbs and catch the air with every muscle in your body. Survey the desert terrain below as the wind turns your cheeks to rubber. Find comfort in the freefall before pulling the ripcord to slow your blistering descent into a tranquil perch in the sky. Once back on terra firma at your Perris hotel, your body may rest on the bed, but your spirit will still soar above it.
