Labor Day Weeknd is coming up and that means a long weekend! There are many amazing unique places to travel over this weekend and private jet travel makes it easy and convenient to travel to these otherwise inconvenient locations. Spend the weekend relaxing in luxury in your own private escape.
Great Smokey Mountains, Tennessee
Experience the beauty of the mountains with breathtaking views, award-winning cuisine, and family-run farms. Have a truly one of a kind experience by spending Labor Day weekend at a blackberry farm! “Family-run Blackberry Farm even has their own…fireworks to light up the night sky and offers a culinary treat to boot–a BBQ battle with some of the most talented names around. For a spirited stopover in Tennessee, be sure to swing by the George Dickel Whisky Distillery in Tullahoma for the inside scoop on how they achieve that smooth, legendary flavor. Back at Blackberry Farm, raise a glass (of your own hand-blended casket)…you indulge in organic cuisine and artisanal cheeses, all sourced and produced on the vast property”.
Aspen is known for its skiing and winter activities but it has much to offer in the summer season as well. “After the crowds of the Food & Wine Classic have headed home, what’s left is something else entirely. Framed by dramatic mountain peaks and the most incredible scenery to boot, uncover the delights of Aspen…as you embark on a raft of unadulterated outdoor activities. From hiking and biking to paragliding and white-water rafting, there’s never a dull moment here. When you’re not exploring the mountains, Aspen itself is home to a burgeoning arts scene with quaint cafes, luxe shops, and fabulous restaurants”.
Watch Hill, Rhode Island
A private escape over looing the ocean transports you to a different world. Celebrate on the beach far away from busy Newport. “The town of Watch Hill shines as a preppy patriotic enclave, and the Ocean House has its very own…fireworks that dazzle in the night sky….This year, the property has even unveiled a secret Veuve Clicquot Champagne Garden that is charming and private with stunning views”.
Litchfield County, Connecticut
Just two hours from New York this beautiful town is the Napa Valley of the East Coast. Spend your long weekend experiencing the outdoors and taking in the breathtaking scenery on one of many hiking trails, rafting excursions, or popular fishing spots. “Get a taste of the good life, filling your days with wine tastings, bicycle rides, and antique shopping excursions to the area’s gorgeous antique stores. If you want to truly escape, hole up at the elegant Grace Mayflower Inn–an idyllic haunt away from the crowds with divine spa facilities. Check out the neighboring town of New Preston for some great luxe shopping, including a Filson boutique and a charming organic food barn”.
Bridgehampton, New York
Bridgehampton has all the luxury and amenities that the Hamptons has but without the overload of people. This adorable town has some of the best beaches on the East Coast. “Elegance abounds here; with antique shops, art galleries and restaurants that serve up local, organic produce. For a leisurely lunch, check out Pierre’s, with a vintage Citroen parked out front that delivers exceptional baguettes and bread to its devoted foodies. Bridgehampton is a locale where you can get a taste of authentic Hampton’s with its rich agricultural history, giving rise to some of the best farmers’ markets (it’s a must)”.
Charm and elegance seep out of every aspect of this coastal town. Camden is the epitome of classic Maine with lighthouses and lobster rolls aplenty. “Wander through harbor towns, skip stones on one of Maine’s many pebble beaches and breathe in the salty sea air. Head to the charming seaside town of Camden and delve into the town’s world-class restaurants that exude laid-back sensibility, bookstores, and boutique shops. Check into the Camden Harbour Inn, perched on the rocky coast of Maine, for an elevated bed and breakfast experience made all the better by the property’s award-winning restaurant Natalie’s- considered the best culinary experience in the state”.
