By the time spring break rolls around, most people are in need of a little R ‘n R. It’s been months since the Christmas break, and the idea of a family getaway just feels right. However, the thought of booking a private jet rental to Disneyland during a peak period seems anything but restful. If you’d rather avoid the masses, here are some alternative destinations that’ll provide plenty of entertainment for the entire family.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Private Jet holiday for Christmas While Aspen and Vail fight it out for ski resort supremacy, Jackson Hole often gets overlooked in the conversation. It has all of the high-end accommodations, amenities and attractions you’d expect for a world-class resort town and is home to three distinct ski areas:

  • Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
  • Snow King Mountain Resort
  • Grand Targhee Resort

It is also the gateway to some of the country’s most spectacular parks and outdoor areas, including:

  • Yellowstone National Park
  • Grand Tetons
  • National Elk Refuge
  • Bridger Teton National Forest

Jackson Hole combines its Old West frontier heritage with a cosmopolitan feel resulting from the patronage of upscale travelers searching for a quality resort experience.

Arriving on a Private Jet Rental to Jackson Hole

Jet charters to Jackson Hole often land at Jackson Hole Airport (JAC), which is located  just seven miles north of town. For other spring skiing destinations, check out our post: Private Jet Flights Bring You to the Top Spring Skiing Resorts.

Fort Myers, Florida

Does a jam-packed Universal Studios sound a little overwhelming? Fort Myers, located in southwest Florida, is the place to be if you want white-sugar sand beaches and outdoor adventure in the sun. The city was once home to the winter estates of two of the country’s most prestigious inventors: Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. As such, there are plenty of museums and historical buildings that you can tour. There’s also the Imaginarium Hand’s On Museum and Aquarium, featuring many interactive exhibits that the kids will love. Also, just a short drive away is Fort Myers Beach, as well as Sanibel and Captiva Islands, which offers an array of family-friendly activities, such as:

  • Snorkeling
  • Kayaking
  • Nature tours
  • Boat tours
  • Fishing charters

Flying to Fort Myers

While Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) handles the majority of incoming commercial flights to the area, families booking a private jet rental to Fort Myers will find Page Field more convenient, as it’s just 15 minutes from the town center.

Santa Cruz, California

Forget Mickey and Mini. With its mild coastal climate, fantastic beaches and welcoming atmosphere, Santa Cruz is a great choice for a spring break getaway. Located on California’s Central Coast, this charming city boasts a vibrant arts scene, which will appeal to adults, as well as a number of kid-friendly attractions, not the least of which is the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Amusement Park. Here, you can go for a ride on the vintage roller-coaster or carousel. Other popular activities include:

  • Going on boat cruises
