Private jet charter from Pennsylvania to Nevada
It’s a long journey westward from Pennsylvania to the Silver State. The Humbolt River draws a line across Nevada, marking the start of the epic mountains and valleys that stagger the landscape. To the west lies ‘Biggest Little City in the World’ Reno and the mighty Lake Tahoe; while the Mojave Desert unfolds to the south, bordered by indigenous Joshua trees and populated towns leading inward to the ghost towns of Calico and Oatman. If you don’t strike gold at the casinos in Vegas, maybe there’s some waiting for you in the desert’s abandoned ghost-mines. Chartering a private jet from Pennsylvania to Nevada?

Top events in Nevada
Nevada is a state that keeps on giving (or taking away, depending on your luck at the tables), from fabulous cities such as Reno and Las Vegas to the breathtaking landscape. At the Colorado River, admire the towering corridor of red rock formations and hike through the Black Canyon. Take an ATV ride through Hidden Valley’s extinct lava beds or journey across the Valley of Fire to explore the numerous sandstone cliffs, winding red-rock canyons and serene valleys. If the heat starts to take its toll, cool off in the fresh waters of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area or hit the pool parties of glittering Las Vegas. Whether you end up at Caesars Palace or under the stars in the red rock wilderness, Nevada offers unforgettable experiences and unending adventure.
