When you're free falling from 13,000 feet, you see life from a whole new perspective. Just an hour outside Boston, Skydive Pepperell will help adjust your view. First, get certified in the Accelerated Freefall course, which ends with you and your instructor bailing out the plane action-flick style. But when you get to 5,000 feet, you and your parachute are on your own.
Skydive Pepperell, 165 Nashua Rd., Pepperell (978-433-9222). Starts at $125.
