Private jet charter from Delaware to Arizona
If you’re planning an Arizona vacation, you may need to cover a fair distance in order to experience the famous desert Basin and Range region in the state’s southern regions. But the Arizona experience extends far beyond its fascinating desert – visitors can also explore Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and Fort Apache and down their fair share of margaritas and Chimichangas. Chartering a private jet from Delaware to Arizona allows you to explore at leisure every nook and far-flung cranny of this amazing state.

Top events in Arizona
Fireflies in Phoenix
If possible, try to visit the Phoenix Art Museum’s You Who Are Getting Obliterated in the Dancing Swarm of Fireflies exhibit during your Arizona vacation. The 25-foot square installation features mirror-lined walls, black granite polished flooring, a black plexiglass ceiling and 250 dangling LED lights, programed with alternating color. Visitors experience an altered sense of self, time and space. Working from a hospital that treats mental illness, artist Yayoi Kusama has begun to gain international recognition for the first time since her notoriety of the sixties. In 2008 she sold a work for $5.1 million – the highest price paid for a piece by a living female artist.
Lava in Flagstaff
The Coconino Lava River Cave bubbled with lava eons ago and is an interesting example of the weird and wonderful shapes created from solid rock by fiery lava. A near-perfect circular cave-like passage formed millennia ago as the outside of a giant lava flow hardened, but a still-liquid center traveled through it like an underground river. Popular with spelunkers because of its smooth arch and lack of stalactites and stalagmites, the huge cave is close to the ground surface with holes punching through the ceiling here and there. This makes for dangerous footing overhead, but exquisite pillars of light inside the cave.
Apache Junction superstition
Stop off for some fun at the Superstition Mountain Museum at the foot of the Superstition Mountains. This quirky museum claims to hold secrets of the Lost Dutchman's Golden Mine, a legendary gold mine that was supposedly discovered but kept secret by German immigrant Jacob Waltz in the 19th-century; and you can view the Peralta Stones – engraved local sandstone blocks – which some believe are important in the search for the mine. The site also hosts its fair share of Elvis-inspired weddings in the Elvis Chapel; while the Audie Murphy Apacheland Barn boasts a collection of horse-drawn buggies and carts which have been used in 17 television series, 29 full-length movies and hundreds of commercials.
The wild horses of Salt River
Catching sight of these free-roaming wild horses along the banks of the Salt River in Tonto National Forest is a truly magical experience. The horses are the descendants of those re-introduced to North America by the Spanish during their conquests of the New World. Even without glimpsing the horses, the river and its surrounds are worth a visit. You’re likely to spot blue heron, bald eagles and river otters on its banks.
Casa Grande Ruins
While their purpose still perplexes historians, it’s generally believed that the Casa Grande Ruins were once a residence or municipal hub. Some of the tallest ancient American ruins, they’re protected by a low, earthen wall and a number of agricultural canals. Believed to have been built by the ancient Sonoran People around 1350 CE, the four-story dirt pueblo has survived for centuries as a window into America’s prehistoric history.
