5 Amazing Casinos NOT in Las Vegas

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

When it comes to luxury, there is no place that treats you quite like a casino. From the suites to the high roller rooms to the bars, clubs, restaurants and service, gaming resorts have it down to an art form, helping the elite class truly understand and feel what it means to be high status.

At evoJets, we arrange private jet charters all over the world. Not surprisingly, many of our clients fly private to popular places like Las Vegas, Monaco, the Bahamas and other major gaming resort locations.

If you’re looking for a casino adventure, chances are the first place you’ll look is Las Vegas, Reno, or somewhere in Nevada where casino resorts are both common and well developed. But every once in a while it’s nice to have somewhere else to go in order to get the same experience, but not have to travel to Nevada each time.

Read on to find some of the top luxury casino resorts outside of Nevada around the country – some you’ve heard of before, and others that may be brand new or hidden gems.

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, 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.

evoJets Luxury Spotlight – Houston

Friday, September 28th, 2012

They say everything’s bigger in Texas and in Houston, the burgeoning luxury scene is no exception. Charter a private jet to Houston and discover how this modern bastion of classic southern charm is making a push into the elite travel arena.

Luxury Shopping

According to Travel & Leisure’s 2011 America’s Favorite Cities survey, Houston ranks #4 in the Luxury Shopping category, behind only New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles. That’s pretty good company.

Check out boutiques like 310 Rosemont in the River Oaks shopping center for designer jeans and swanky cocktail dresses, and the Chloe Dao Boutique (formerly Lot 8 boutique), signature retail location for Project Runway 2 winner and Houston native, Chloe Dao. These and other chic Houston shops exude Texas charm, flash the hottest fashions and do it without the LA and New York price tags.

Do you have any idea how many pairs of shoes you can pack into a Learjet 35?

Vibrant Cultural Scene

With a continued emphasis on art and culture, Houston has positioned itself among the nation’s leaders in refined leisure. That’s right – they don’t just dish out BBQ and lasso steer, although they still do both of those things very well, ya’ll.

Seating close to 1,300 in its live performance venues, Houston’s downtown theatre district ranks second in this regard only to New York City. It is one of only five cities that serve as a permanent home to professional ballet (Houston Ballet), opera (Houston Grand Opera) and music (Houston Symphony Orchestra) companies. Similarly impressive, the Houston museum district houses several notable establishments, attracting millions of patrons every year.

Lavish Accommodations

Let’s face it, if you’re going to charter a jet to Houston you’re going to need a quick rundown of the nicest hotels in the city. Fear not – we’ve got it covered.

Try the St Regis or the Hotel Granduca in the exclusive River Oaks area. Tucked away from the bustle of the city’s major metro area, these high-end hotels are located close to some of Houston’s best shopping and tourist attractions. However, if you’re looking to experience the heart of the city, consider the classically elegant Four Seasons, located in Houston’s energetic downtown area.

Getting There

Charter a plane to Houston and see it all for yourself. Choose from a number of local airports like Ellington Airport (EFG), Sugar Land Regional Airport (SGR) and William P. Hobby (HOU), located at different points across the city.

A Getaway to Los Angeles with Your Pet

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

This winter season you might look forward to an escape from the sleet, snow, and ice to an upcoming planned getaway with all your family members, including Fido or Fluffy. Are you considering flying by private jet charter to Los Angeles with your pet? No problem! evoJets has your private travel all set. Request a quote and charter a private jet with evoJets.

It would be unthinkable to leave Fido or Fluffy at home in the ice caves of the north while you are lounging in the California sun on vacation. But taking a pet on a commercial flight can be a major hassle, not to mention the inconveniences of the commercial flight itself. So chartering a flight to Los Angeles makes perfect sense, as long as your charter company doesn’t have a problem.

Here at evoJets, we welcome your pet – who is, after all, a beloved member of your family – with the same open arms with which we greet all our clients. Fido and Fluffy are welcome aboard all your evoJets Charter flights, provided that you comply with the safety measures. As pets are always required to be secured for take-off and landing, a pet safety belt will be provided for pets weighing over 25 pounds and smaller pets may ride in a pet carrier or on your lap.

Meanwhile, you will have much more freedom and comfort to enjoy your private flight without worrying about how your pet is being treated. Although, please keep in mind that you are liable for any damage, either to the aircraft or crew that your pet may cause. But since you will be right there with them, you will be able to ensure that neither will happen and a smooth flight will be had by all.

If you are selecting the evoJets exclusive option of traveling on a shared-flight, please notify evoJets in advance if you plan on bringing your pet. Fido and Fluffy may be allowed aboard provided that approval is given by the other members sharing your flight.

Once you arrive in Los Angeles, you may have a smoother and more pleasant landing process based on the airport selected for landing. There are quite a few airports in the LA area, each with its own rules and procedures. The layout and format of the airport may also affect how your arrival proceeds. To learn more about each of the airports in greater LA area and the other thrills of flying there by evoJets Charter, read the Los Angeles city profile on our site.

If you wish to charter aircraft with evoJets, please call us on 877-970-5387 or Request a Quote for your preferred choice of private jet. For more information about evoJets, our founders and team, and private aviation topics, visit us on Twitter and Facebook!
