U.S. Virgin Islands

You won’t need a passport to visit this tropical paradise—this Caribbean getaway gives you the feel of an international vacation with the ease of a domestic trip. On the island of St. Thomas, enjoy snorkeling, sailing, or swimming with the turtles in Turtle Cove, or head to Paradise Point for panoramic views of Charlotte Amalie harbor and the surrounding islands. In addition, Magellan Jets has partnered with Little Gem Resorts to bring private jet travelers to the USVI’s newest resort, the secluded tropical paradise of Lovango. Guests flying to Lovango between June 1 and July 31, 2021 will enjoy a full-day Cabana at Lovango’s Beach Club, as well as $1,500 in flight credits toward their private flight.

Nantucket, Massachusetts

Bask in the charm of old New England—lobster rolls, clapboard houses, and soft, sandy beaches abound. Stroll the ‘Sconset Bluff Walk to Sankaty Head Light for some of the island’s best views, and when you’re ready for more, explore Nantucket by bicycle. Stay at the iconic Nantucket Hotel, the island’s only year-round lodging, owned and operated by our partners at Little Gem Resorts. The boutique resort experience at this century-old Nantucket fixture can’t be missed. 

Anguilla

It may be tiny, but Anguilla boasts what Conde Nast Traveler says are the best beaches in the Caribbean. Stroll Rendezvous Beach, the longest of Anguilla’s beaches, for a breathtaking view of nearby St. Martin. Be sure to explore the oceanfront villas available on Anguilla’s Long Bay through our partner, Blue Sky Luxury Travels. Or, experience Anguilla by dropping anchor in Shoal Bay with our partner IYC, the operator of the largest yacht charter fleet in the world. IYC’s Leeward Islands and St. Maarten itineraries make stops at this unspoiled Caribbean paradise.

The Bahamas

If the hustle and bustle of Nassau isn’t your style, try a quieter, more private experience. Through Magellan Jets’ partnership with Blue Sky Luxury Travels, private jet travelers have access to a number of exclusive and unforgettable destinations throughout the Bahamas. There’s The Copasetic, a four-bedroom luxury villa on Staniel Cay with gorgeous oceanfront views—or, if you’d like an even more purely private getaway, try Little Pipe Cay—an 11-bedroom, 38-acre, entirely self-sufficient private island retreat in the Exumas. Whatever guests choose, they’ll enjoy Blue Sky‘s extremely personal and detailed commitment to service.

Palm Springs, California

Enjoy this desert oasis and its gorgeous views of the surrounding San Jacinto Mountains while the temperatures are still comfortable. Take in the views from a 650-foot bluff overlooking the gorgeous Coachella Valley at the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage, a classic desert beauty revived to a new state of luxury. Tour the natural splendor of nearby Joshua Tree National Park or, if you’re feeling adventurous, take a Jeep and hiking eco-tour of Indian Canyon, ancestral home of the Cahuilla tribes.

Scottsdale, Arizona

There are more than 200 golf courses in the Scottsdale area—tee up at McCormick Ranch Golf Club in the heart of the city, or at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, owned by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and lined by giant saguaros and wide open desert. Scottsdale’s Old Town features high-end shopping, dining, and culture against a classic Western backdrop. Hike the granite summit of Pinnacle Peak Park and visit the aptly-named Grandview lookout. And no trip to Arizona is complete without seeing the Grand Canyon—why not take in its splendor from above, via helicopter tour from Scottsdale?

Palm Beach, Florida

Visiting Palm Beach in the spring means avoiding the family crowds and snowbirds that flock to the area in summer and winter—and as an added bonus, you’ll miss the hottest temperatures, too. The Four Seasons Palm Beach, Palm Beach Island’s only five-star, five-diamond resort, just re-opened to new guests after being closed for over a year. The luxurious six-acre property’s poolside cabanas and spa are all intimately connected to the hotel’s private beachfront. Head down to Worth Avenue to peruse the best upscale boutiques, galleries, and dining, or stroll through the tropical flora in Mounts Botanical Garden

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort may have closed for the season, but there’s plenty to do in this picturesque Old West town besides skiing (and you’ll have fewer crowds to deal with, too). Hiking options abound in the Teton and Gros Venture mountain ranges that flank the area, and a taste of the wilderness can be found in the nearby Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. If you’re visiting in the spring, note that this is when wildlife is most active—visit the National Elk Refuge to spot bison, elk, and bighorn sheep.
