4. Savannah, GA

No matter how you spend your time in Savannah, spring is the perfect time to visit.

5. Moab, UT

Moab is known for its trails and climbing spots for those looking for a challenge. And spring is the best time of year to enjoy them. There are a few places to do this, including the Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park.

The views in Moab are unmatched anywhere, They take your breath away. 

Of course, you can always find noteworthy shopping and dining while here, too. 

6. Chicago, IL

While it still may be a little chilly in the springtime, visiting the windy city is always fun. And it doesn’t let the weather slow anything down. While here, you will want to get out and explore all the city has to offer – including the touristy spots like Navy Pier and SkyDeck Chicago. If you don’t have a picture of yourself with The Bean, have you ever really been to Chicago?

Don’t miss out on local entertainment, shopping, delicious dining (say, Chicago deep dish pizza?), and more. 

7. Anchorage, AK

A lot can happen on a spring getaway to Anchorage, AK. The weather is warming up and the days are long. But, good news – you can still see the northern lights. 

There is so much to do here that you can’t really find elsewhere, such as glacier cruises, whale watching, getting up close and personal with moose and bears at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, learning about Alaskan culture,  and so on. 

This is the best time of year to make the most of your Anchorage trip. 

8. Orlando, FL

Are you a theme park enthusiast that wants to avoid summer crowds? Springtime is a great time to make it to Orlando, FL. The weather is warm, but still milder than in summer which makes walking amusement parks a bit more enjoyable. Not to mention the strong afternoon thunderstorms haven’t kicked in just yet – so rides and parks will stay open. 

Orlando is home to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios, as well as Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and SeaWorld. There are also many other attractions you won’t want to miss outside of the parks – and you are only about an hour away from the beach. What more could you ask for on a spring getaway?

Getting There

Once you have your destination in mind, it is time to book your flight. But, pause to think about this for a moment. You are heading out on a spring vacation to have some fun and relaxation. What is comforting about commercial air travel? Not to mention that there are a large number of spring break travelers, too.  

The hustle and bustle of the airport. Time restraints. Long lines. A large number of travelers. TSA security checkpoints. Layovers. Delays and cancellations. Sharing a close space with strangers. Should we keep going? 

Save yourself the aggravation. Instead, head out to one of the above popular destinations while wrapped in the comfort and luxury of a private jet. Chartering a jet is the only way to enhance your travels so that you have an unforgettable time. 

All you have to do is decide on your destination!
