Romantic Valentine’s Day Getaways

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Valentine’s Day is a time to show that much-deserved love and appreciation for your significant other (dreamy sigh…). Flowers, chocolates and romantic dinners are classic ways to make your partner feel special, but what if this year you packed all your old tricks in a suitcase and unveiled them in a whimsical new setting?

Here are some great ideas for a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway:

A Picnic on the Champ de Mars

Surprise your special someone with a trip to The City of Light. Enjoy a picnic on the Champ de Mars, Paris, and gaze at the Eiffel Tower while you reminisce over a bottle of champagne. The music in the air, smell of fresh-baked bread, and the love you share will make this moment an unforgettable one.

Igloo for Two

Talk about a Valentine’s Day surprise… If you want to do something truly unique, travel to Hotel Kakslauttanen in Saariselkä, Finland. The beauty of Urho Kekkonen National Park surrounds you as you enjoy the sounds of true wildlife and scenery that is unparalleled. After dark, retire to your cozy igloo complete with a clear glass ceiling, and marvel at an unmatched view of the Aurora Borealis throughout the night. Snuggle under blankets and watch the artwork unfold in the sky, then count all the points you scored for orchestrating such a fabulous evening.

Spa Treatment

The Homestead in Hot Springs, VA offers southern hospitality and charm alongside luxurious spa pampering that will relax and rejuvenate you and your loved one. Enjoy the pool and grounds, a couple’s massage, and reconnect with each other in a soothing and stress-free setting.

Chic Meets Beach

Secluded coves, art galleries, boutique hotels, and fine dining are just some of the things you’ll experience in LaJolla, CA. Situated a mere stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean, LaJolla provides a feast for the senses. Sunshine and warmth enfold this lovely seaside town year round.

The Poconos

Enjoy romance in kitschy style. The Poconos in Lakeville, PA provides a lighthearted approach to romance. Enjoy a 7-foot tall whirlpool bath built in the shape of a champagne glass. Swim in your private in-suite heart-shaped pool. Relax by a log-burning fireplace or enjoy the warmth of your private sauna. Live lavishly and enjoy each other. With three couples-only resorts, your trip is guaranteed to provide an atmosphere dedicated to romance and relaxation.

Romantic getaways are what you make them. Your relationship, free from responsibilities, projects, and deadlines, can return to the essence of what makes it special. The right setting will spark the magic, and evoJets can get you there!

Celebrate Valentine’s Day in a unique way and be carefree again. And if you want to add another level of style and privacy, book a private aircraft to take you on your way. Charter a compact light jet with cozy seating for four and fly direct from boredom to romance!

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Colorado is known for its natural beauty. Preserved links to the past, the pristine glory of the mountains and the clean, fresh smell of the air combine to make Colorado one of the most alluring travel destinations in the United States.

There are many must-see destinations in Colorado, but the staple mountain towns of Aspen, Steamboat Springs, and Telluride offer the best in winter vacation activities and landscapes. Conveniently accessible via charter jet from Denver or each other, these locales are sure to top your list of favorite Rocky Mountain getaways.

Aspen

Aspen, Co has long been heralded as a winter retreat for wealthy private travelers. A quaint little town reminiscent of English ancestors across the pond, Aspen appears untouched by the world around it. This quiet town is home to only about 6,500 residents year round, but throngs of visitors fill the streets on any given day. Downhill and Nordic skiing are available in Aspen. Riding the chairlift starts the action, proving a fantastic view of the picturesque town on the way up. Originally founded by the Ute Indians and called “The Shining Mountain”, a source for silver mining in the 1800’s, Aspen has a varied history. When you take a break from the slopes, walk the city proper- it’s only a few blocks – and immerse yourself in the culture and history of the American West.
