Spring is here and the weather is getting warmer, so it’s the perfect time to start planning some day trips. Monmouth Jet Center is the perfect executive airport for shorter day trips in and around New Jersey, and we offer a range of services including hangar space, private jet maintenance, passenger amenities including a lounge, and not to mention the convenient location. Here are some of our favorite day trips.
New York City
Who doesn’t love New York City, especially in the springtime? Flying from Monmouth Jet Center to NYC takes less than an hour, and before you know it you’ll be in the Big Apple enjoying the hustle and bustle. Whether you want to pop into NYC for a fun day of shopping, or to catch a Broadway show, or to sight-see at some of the most famous destinations in the world, you can get there easily via Monmouth Jet Center.
If you love history then you’ll have plenty to do and see in Philadelphia, which is the first World Heritage City in the United States. Philadelphia is perfect for a day trip or a quick weekend trip to see the sights, including:
- The Liberty Bell
- The steps from the classic movie Rocky, along with the Rocky statue
- Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed and the United States Constitution was created
- The famous LOVE sculpture by artist Robert Indiana
- Reading Terminal Market, one of America’s oldest farmers markets
Block Island is a beautiful island located 17 miles south of Rhode Island. It’s famous for its miles of beautiful public beaches, clear waters, dramatic bluffs, and its preserved natural beauty. Animal lovers will want to visit the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, where you can see migratory songbirds, and architecture enthusiasts will enjoy the island’s two lighthouses – one on the North end and one on the South end. If you’re craving a peaceful, scenic beach getaway where you can escape your everyday hustle and bustle, Block Island is an ideal destination for you.
The Jersey Shore
The Jersey Shore has so much to offer for families, couples, and those who enjoy traveling solo, and you don’t need to wait until the summer to visit. Take a stroll down the two famous boardwalks, Ocean City Boardwalk and Atlantic City Boardwalk, then visit the Cape May Lighthouse. Cape May Beach and Wildwood Beach attract thousands of visitors a year, and we know you’ll enjoy the dozens of miles of beautiful coastline and soothing ocean waters. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the Cape May County Park and Zoo, and there’s even a Jersey Shore Alpaca Park where you can get up close and personal with the alpacas.
