Let’s face it. We’ve all spent an unusual amount of time at home. As many businesses begin slowly and safely reopening, you’d be forgiven for wanting to get out there and live out loud. Here are three randomly awesome activities in Chandler, Arizona, to get you back to enjoying life beyond your front door.

Aerogelic Ballooning

First up on our list definitely fits our title description of awesomely random. Aerogelic Ballooning is exactly what you think it is. You and up to three of your friends get a bird’s-eye view of Chandler. You can choose from several balloon ride packages that include rides during sunrise, sunset, or as part of the Arizona Balloon Classic taking place April 30-May 2.

Escape Chandler

So, unless you’ve been living under a rock, which we all kinda have been, you know that escape rooms have become a bit of a thing. For the uninitiated, you and a group of your friends are willingly locked in a room and have to figure out how to escape, which, considering the state of the world, is all kinds of meta. Escape Chandler is an award-winning collection of themed escape rooms that include The Cabin, Pawn Shop, Tony’s Bistro, and Kate's Motel.

Chandler Lanes

While not totally random, bowling alleys aren’t just some lanes and a snack bar. Along with socially responsible bowling, Chandler Lanes includes an arcade, billiards, sports bar, and restaurant with a killer menu that includes pub favorites like hot wings and big plates full of nachos.
