Charter a Private Jet and See the Four Corners of the US
Enjoy the nation’s diversity by traveling to all four corners
If you’re looking to charter a private jet, consider traveling to one, or all four of the nation’s continental corners! (Sorry Alaska and Hawaii – we’ll feature you in a subsequent blog.) Why travel to the corners? First, the best way to see the nation’s stunning landscapes is from the comfort of a private jet. Second, although many of us travel across the continent for business, when was the last time we allowed ourselves the luxury of traveling somewhere just out of curiosity? Each corner has unique attractions for travellers from all over the world.
Seattle is a great place to start your northwest exploration when you charter a private jet. Aircraft enthusiasts will marvel at the scale of the Boeing Factory Tour. Across from the Boeing Field is Paul Allen’s Flying Heritage Museum, featuring a unique collection of rare vintage aircraft. Once you’ve enjoyed your fill of aircraft, sushi, Chihuly glass, Starbucks coffee, seafood and local breweries, head out to Washington’s great outdoors. Spectacular hiking, biking and kayaking await you in the Evergreen State.
This corner boasts a rich history and breath-taking rugged landscapes. The lighthouse at West Quoddy Head, Maine is officially the easternmost point in the USA. The lighthouse is fun to photograph, but we suggest Maine has many other charms. Horror fans will enjoy touring Bangor, the inspiration for Stephen King’s fictional town of Derry. Lobster feasts, history, ocean views, roadside markets and boutique shopping will delight you in Maine.
Key West, Florida is as far south as you can go in the continental USA. Ponce de Leone was the first European to see it in 1521. In the centuries since, it changed hands many times, creating a mosaic of languages and cultures. You can still tour the homes of many public figures who lived there, including Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and Harry Truman. Gulf breezes, Cuban/Caribbean cuisine, mojitos, ocean sports and sunshine are just some of the reasons to visit Key West when you charter a private jet.
Imperial Beach, California, is the south-western-most point in the lower 48 states. Just 14 miles south of San Diego, Imperial Beach is sunny 323 days a year, and it encompasses nearly four miles of beach. A surfer’s paradise, the area also boasts a number of military museums, top golf courses, and the best authentic Mexican/California cuisine around. This popular destination is highly regarded as one of the best surf spots in the area, and the pier even showcases plaques highlighting the city’s surfing history.
