The Top Three Most Interesting Cities on the US East Coast

Thanks to the eclectic mix of cultures and climates in the US, each of its cities has a unique atmosphere. The vibrant cities of the east coast are great city-break destinations, but if you want to avoid the bustle of busy airports, consider chartering a private jet. Closer airports, private lounges and facilities, and no endless wait for check-in or luggage pick-up? It’s the stress-free way to travel.

The Top Three Most Interesting Cities on the US East Coast

Here's our guide to three culture-rich east-coast cities. 

Washington, D.C.

Washington, as the US capital, is dominated by government institutions. It’s home to the White House, Capitol Building, and Supreme Court. In front of the Capitol sits the National Mall, home to eight of the most famous monuments in the US, including emotive war memorials. 

While you’re here:
  • Visit some of the Smithsonian Institution’s 20+ attractions, such as the Natural History Museum and the National Zoo. 
  • Go to the National Portrait Gallery, the International Spy Museum, and Washington National Cathedral—the sixth largest cathedral in the world.
  • Catch a performance at the Kennedy Center.
  • Wander through historic Georgetown, with its trendy boutiques and numerous restaurants of all kinds. 

Ronald Reagan National Airport is Washington’s closest, but private jets can also land at Leesburg Executive Airport, Manassas Regional Airport, and Dulles International.

New York

New York: home to world-famous attractions, flagship stores, and landmarks. With so much on offer, what are the must-sees and must-dos?

  • Watch a show on Broadway and spend time in the nearby Times Square, where the city’s liveliest streets meet.
