Regional vacation destinations are a great option for families this summer. There are some amazing places pretty close to home, and you won’t have to deal with international travel, long distance flights, language barriers, or that feeling of dislocation. What keeps many of us from seeing these beautiful regional vacation spots is often the fact that they are typically a little out of the way — a pretty far drive (“Mom, are we there yet??!!?”) yet also not convenient to a major airport (you might as well drive if you have a three hour wait for a one hour flight!). You no longer have to grin and bear the drive or skip the trip due to lack of commercial airline service. With a New Jersey charter flight or Pennsylvania charter flight, you can fly right into a smaller, regional airport close to your hidden vacation paradise.
One example of a hidden gem regional destination in the Northeast is Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The Maine coast is breathtakingly beautiful, and pretty unique, on the East Coast. Known for its rustic natural beauty, rocky shores, migrating whales, sailing heritage, bountiful seafood, and artisan shops, Maine has something for everyone. With a charter flight, you zip right into a nearby regional airport (no 3 hour drive from Boston’s Logan Airport for you!) where you can quickly settle into your stay at a local historic B&B or a chic boutique hotel. Travel on your schedule, with only your loved ones, and all the luggage you need. Don’t worry about your souvenir purchases — you’ll have room for them on the trip home. Having too much fun? No problem. Stay an extra day if you want to; the charter flight leaves when you are ready to go.
In the Boothbay Harbor area, your vacation can take you to hiking in parks and wildland, fantastic food in world-class restaurants, historic Boothbay Railway Village, an offshore whale watch, exploration of remote islands and lighthouses, a sunset sail on a historic schooner, kayaking in picturesque coves, and deep sea fishing for cod, stripers, and bluefish galore. Time your visit to coincide with some or all of Boothbay Region Harborfest from September 1-10, 2017, a series of events to please everyone in the family. Enjoy a Taste of Local Flavor, run a 5K or half marathon, shop local artisan boutiques, listen to live music, gallery-hop in search of that perfect art piece, or explore wellness and spa offerings.
Whatever regional getaway you choose, choose a New Jersey charter flight or Pennsylvania charter flight to deliver you right to where you want to be. Depart close to home. Bring the whole family. Get close to remote areas replete with unspoiled beauty without sacrificing travel convenience. Travel on your schedule so the kids can finish that last day of camp or grandma’s medical needs can be sorted out.
