1. Palm Springs, California
The Memorial Day weekend in Palm Springs, California, typically has daytime highs of about 95 degrees Fahrenheit with almost no humidity.
With trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and over 100 renowned golf courses, it is easy to investigate the terrain at your own pace.
After sunset, temperatures drop to about 80 degrees Fahrenheit which is perfect for outdoor dining in one of the many delicious eateries lining the Palm Springs streets.
Casual, laid back dining is the norm, and Palm Springs restaurants work hard to deliver the best. That said, The Heyday still has the best gooey cheeseburgers.
After an evening of exploring the local music scene, there is nothing more refreshing than a chilled nightcap at one of the many bars, pubs and grills.
A leisurely approach to life is what private jet vacation travel is all about. What if you want more time for golf? Simply reschedule your flight with our 24/7 concierge at least three hours before takeoff. Making time for golf has never been easier.
There’s more to Palm Springs than golf. There are hot springs and spa treatments to revive the weary spirit. According to Times of India,
“They sought out hot springs and built baths so they could heal their aching bodies.” The healing baths are called Sanus Per Aquam (SPA). They are believed to restore health by or through water.
There’s no therapy like shopping, and Palm Springs is a shopper’s paradise. In the heart of the city, Palm Canyon Drive is peppered with trendy interior design boutiques, avant-garde gallery exhibits and funky chic clothing shops.
The El Paseo shopping district boasts over 300 high-end shops in an amazing mile of never-ending luxury.
If you arrive on Friday and stay until Tuesday, you’ll miss the VillageFest street fair. It is a cornucopia of arts, crafts, freshly baked delights and live entertainment that’s not to be missed.
A change in plans is not a problem when you fly private. Simply reschedule your charter flight to accommodate the new itinerary, and you will be good to go.
2. Palm Beach Island, Florida

The five-star, five-diamond getaway destination has a timeless elegance and private beachfront access. The poolside cabanas and spa are all accessible from the private beach.
Swimming and snorkeling at Lake Worth Lagoon will soothe your spirit and nurture your soul. Lake Trail is one of the best biking trails in Florida with stunning views of the water and the extraordinary mansions overlooking Lake Worth.
