Top Three Most Interesting Cities on The West Coast
With their different geographies and diverse populations, cities in the US all have their own unique atmosphere. We’ve chosen three sun-soaked west coast cities ideal for a city break or holiday.

For a stress-free trip that feels like the start of your holiday, hire a private jet to visit these cities. Avoid the airport crowds and queues, and travel in luxury and comfort instead.

Las Vegas

Las Vegas is glitzy, glamorous, and famous for its gambling establishments. Its famous casino resorts, with their luxury accommodation, shops, entertainment, and leisure facilities, include:

  • Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip, with top-name performers, celebrity chefs, and Roman-Forum style shopping mall
  • The Bellagio, with top music stars, botanical gardens, and a Fine Art Gallery

Las Vegas isn’t all about gambling and nightlife, though. The multitude of venues and breakout activities make it popular for business meetings and conferences too. It’s also a great place for outdoor activities such as white-water rafting, horseback riding, and golf.

Indoor attractions include the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, the Ethel M Chocolate Factory Tour, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, Martin Lawrence Galleries, Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural History, and M&M’s World.

If you’re traveling to Las Vegas by private jet, you can fly into either McCarran International Airport or North Las Vegas Airport, both within 5 miles of the Las Vegas strip.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles is famous for its 30-mile strip of golden beaches, numerous celebrity residents, and, of course, Hollywood. Soak up the star-studded atmosphere with a wander along the Hollywood Walk of Fame or a drive through Beverly Hills, home to many stars. Universal Studios and Warner Bros are nearby and great places to spend the day.

Well-known beaches include Santa Monica Beach and Malibu Beach, ideal for relaxing in the sun or trying an array of watersports. For a more cultural experience, head to one of the city’s numerous theatres, such as El Capitan Theatre of the Greek Theatre, or one of its 300 museums. The most popular include the Getty Museum, the Petersen Automotive Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Griffith Observatory, and the Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits.

Do you plan a private flight to Los Angeles? While you can land at Los Angeles International Airport, 15 miles south, there are better facilities for private jets at Van Nuys Airport, around 21 miles northwest.

San Francisco

The gold rush turned San Francisco into the thriving metropolis it is today, with its fantastic shops, museums, theatres, restaurants, bars, and coffee shops.

Attractions include the infamous Alcatraz Prison and Island, the Golden Gate Bridge and Park, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Presidio, Coit Tower, Aquarium of the Bay, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Bayview Opera House, California’s Great America Amusement Park, the Conservatory of Flowers, and Fox Theater.

Wander along the World’s Crookedest Street or watch master bakers at work at the famous Boudin at the Wharf bakery. Explore Chinatown or Haight-Ashbury, a nexus for the counterculture, with its colorful Victorian houses and quirky stores. Wander along the waterfront, watching out for basking sealions, and eat at one of the many restaurants. And don’t go home without riding on one of the city’s famous cable cars!

Traveling to San Francisco by private jet is easy. San Francisco International Airport is just 10 miles south of downtown, and Oakland International Airport is 12 miles northeast.

Select Your City and Fly Stress-Free

If you’re finding it hard to choose one, why not have a two-center holiday? By plane, these three cities are all within 1hr 45 minutes of each other. Fly by private jet and there’s no need to check in hours early for your flight or wait for ages to clear customs or collect your luggage. Traveling between your two cities will be quick, easy, and stress-free.
