Known for its quirky charm, Telluride has a quaint appeal and unique history snuggled amidst 9,078ft of elevation. Known as one of the top winter ski destinations, the town is a summer hotspot filled with hiking opportunities, distinctive restaurants, and the closest stoplight 45 minutes away. Small-town nirvana is easily found via a short flight from Los Angeles.
New York City, New York
Labor Day draws private jets to not only the city, but to The Hamptons and White Plains. For both fast-paced ambiance or relaxed seaside journeys, New York is a destination for luxury; no matter what the occasion. Culture, food, and fashion are all experienced in one place, and if that is not quite enough, London, Monaco, and Miami are a short hop away.
Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket, Massachusetts
A popular summer destination, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are only accessible by boat or air. There is a small village feel in Nantucket; with shingled cottages and many ‘cash-only’ establishments. Martha’s Vineyard operates as if someone found a pause button to time. For a ‘world’s away’ escape by private jet, there are little comparisons to the two Massachusetts’ hideaways.
Sun Valley, Idaho
In the summer, the winter resort town of Sun Valley is a mecca for media and tech moguls; claiming host to a ‘Summer Camp For Billionaires‘. Between lucrative deals or relaxing— swimming, fly-fishing, rafting, and paragliding are a few of the activities that visitors may enjoy. Spend the night in a Yurt for a ‘glamping’ experience or the iconic Sun Valley Lodge; where Ernest Hemingway, the Kennedys, and Marilyn Monroe were also once guests.
The Bahamas heats up for Labor Day as private jet setters steal away to teal-tinted waters and soft white sand beaches of this top luxury destination. The highly anticipated Baha Mar, as well as a handful of luxury boutique hotels and farm to table restaurants have recently splashed onto the scene; offering even more options to a place with unlimited opportunity. For a quiet escape, charter a private yacht and explore the beauty of neighboring Harbour Island or Eleuthera.
