Private jet travel is the best way to experience America’s beauty and the territories and countries beyond. So when you’re ready to get away with your family for luxury holiday travel, consider flying to these five destinations that offer plenty of natural beauty, attractions, and family-friendly activities.
In central Florida, Orlando is one of the top destinations for families. From theme parks and watersports to shopping and dining, this city caters to exceptional entertainment at all times of the year.
Families can spend countless happy hours exploring attractions like Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, LEGOLAND, and the Kennedy Space Center. Disney Springs, Orlando Tree Trek, or Bok Tower Gardens are great for a low-key family outing.

Yellowstone’s winter ruggedness makes it a must-do experience. There’s nothing like an abundance of wildlife and snow-covered mountains to convince you of America’s magnificence.
Since many interior roads close during winter, you can experience the park by sleigh ride, snow coach tours, dog sled, snowmobile, and more.
For a different pace at Yellowstone National Park, grab some skis or snowshoes to get up close to nature. Don’t forget to make time for iconic sights like Old Faithful Geyser and Mammoth Hot Springs. Warming huts are found throughout the park.

Note that a separate Yellowstone Airport in West Yellowstone is closed during winter.
The U.S. Virgin Islands — St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John — are incredible winter destinations for luxury private jet travel.
Head to St. Thomas for shopping and dining in a Caribbean backdrop, along with miles of beach and the 700-foot-high Skyride gondola over St. Thomas Harbor. On St. John, stunning nature awaits. This island is home to the Virgin Islands National Park, Trunk Bay Beach, and plenty of outdoor adventures. When you arrive in St. Croix, you’ll enjoy beautiful beaches, historical sites, and delicious local dining. St. Croix is also home to two bioluminescent bays.

Clearwater Beach is the perfect destination for a luxurious beachside retreat during your private jet travel. This barrier island has a white-sand beach, while nearby Mandalay Avenue is lined with shops and restaurants.
You can enjoy parasailing, jet-skiing, beach lounging, and swimming. You can even take helicopter tours and get close to nature in Caladesi Island State Park. Across the bridge, enjoy day trips to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Busch Gardens, the Imagine Museum, and additional family entertainment.

A Palm Springs holiday shows you the beauty of the California desert in winter. Winter temperatures give the best of both worlds: sunny, warm days and pleasantly cool nights. Nearby mountains can even have snow!
Palm Springs overflows with luxurious shopping, dining, and incredible desert vistas. Other attractions include the Palm Springs Art Museum, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, and Joshua Tree National Park. You’ll also love the views from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, which travels to 8,500 feet in the San Jacinto Mountains.
