STAjets Travel Guide | 10 Best Summer Vacation Destinations in America

From the Grand Canyon to Graceland, Summer is the season to appreciate all that our magnificent country has to offer. With our expanded fleet and locations throughout the country in California, New York and Florida, STAjets is ready to take you and yours, anywhere, anytime.

According to Oprah.com the 10 best Summer vacation destinations include the following:

Cape Cod: Summers in Cape Cod, just an hour outside Boston, are known for beautiful beaches, starry nights and delicious seafood.

Chicago: It may be the Windy City, but Chicago has more to offer than just cold and snow. Come summertime, locals head outdoors to enjoy a day at the beach, a bike ride along the lakefront or a picnic in any of the city’s 7,300 acres of parkland—more than any city in the U.S.

Graceland: Elvis Presley’s Memphis, Tennessee, home is the second-most visited house in the United States (after the White House), but you don’t have to be a groupie to get all shook up by the King’s castle.

Grand Canyon: Located in the northwest corner of Arizona, the Grand Canyon is a landmark you have to see to believe. At one mile deep and 277 miles long, the canyon attracts about 5 million visitors each year.

Mount Rushmore: Summer’s biggest holiday celebrates the birth of the nation, so what better way to show your patriotism than heading to South Dakota to visit Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt.

San Francisco: It may seem counterintuitive to head to California to escape the heat, but San Francisco is known for its breezy summers. An average temperature of 70 degrees makes it the perfect family destination, so lace up your sneaks—this bay area gem is best seen on foot.

Santa Fe: Immerse yourself in culture in this Southwestern city known for its Native American-inspired art and architecture. The breathtaking scenery is an ideal backdrop for hiking, biking or rafting (or simply watching the sunset), and summertime—when the weather is dry, sunny and mild—is the best season to visit.

Washington D.C.: Hit the nation’s capital for the ultimate double whammy—education and leisure. You’re never too old—or young—to appreciate the rich history the city has to offer, and Washington, D.C., has perfected the art of making learning fun.

Colonial Williamsburg: Travel back in time to the 1770s when you visit this historic district of Williamsburg, Virginia. Leave your TVs and iPods behind while you chat with historical re-enactors who talk, dress and work as they would have in the days of the American Revolution.

Yellowstone National Park: Yellowstone, located in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, was founded in 1872, making it the country’s first national park. In its 2.2 million acres of wilderness, Yellowstone is home to hundreds of species of wildlife and 300 geysers, most notably Old Faithful.
