There's something so exciting about getting on a plane and being up in the clouds. It may be the unknown of a new travel destination, the feeling of escape from a current location, or the pure excitement of a new beginning.

There's a sense of freedom when it comes to flying which brings a lot of people the feeling of joy and happiness. This is something that I experience when I travel.

If you don't have the time or money at the moment to leave for a few days, you can fly in the sky in the Hudson Valley. With the arrival of spring and all of its beautiful blossoms, there's so much life to see in our area and the surrounding counties.
