If you’re someone who likes taking in a beautiful view, think about your seat choice the next time you book a flight. Window seats can give you the opportunity to see some breathtaking landscapes from a unique point of view, and there are some trips where the windows seat is worth it…
Rocky Mountains, Colorado & Wyoming
If your flight passes over the Rocky Mountains in Colorado or the Grand Tetons (a subrange of the Rockies), you’ll want to get a glimpse of them. The Rocky Mountains contain some of the highest peaks in central North America, including Mount Elbert, the highest, in Colorado.
New York City
Flying over New York City? Don’t miss out on seeing the Big Apple from above; you’ll be fascinated with how large the city truly is. An especially great view of the skyline can be seen if you’re flying East into Newark Airport or West out of it.
Washington D.C. Monuments
Passengers flying into Washington D.C. will get a special treat when the plane drops low before landing. You’ll be able to make out the White House, the Capitol Building, the Reflection Pool, and the Washington Monument, all within a few seconds.
Mount Rainier, Washington
If you’re flying Southwest into Seattle or Southeast out of Seattle, you’ll get a great view of Mount Rainier, the highest mountain in Washington. The massive volcano rises 14,411 feet and is third on the list of “ultra-prominent peaks” in the United States.
San Francisco Bay
No matter where you’re coming from or going to, travelers on San Francisco International flights will get a view of the bay many don’t see. You’ll spot the 1.7-mile long Golden Gate Bridge, the city of San Francisco, and the quiet Marin Hills.
Mauna Volcanoes, Hawaii
A flight into Honolulu International Airport will give you a view of the U.S. unlike any other. Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, two 13,000-foot volcanoes on the “Big Island” of Hawaii will be a pretty welcoming sight after hours of flying over the Pacific Ocean.
Grand Canyon, Arizona
If you don’t get the chance to see the Grand Canyon in person, make sure you at least see it from the air. The massive, nearly two-billion-year-old canyon stretches 277 miles and can be up to 18 miles wide and over one mile deep.
No matter where you’re headed, our Philadelphia Airport long-term parking can make it easy for you while you’re gone. You’ll get a great rate, convenience, and peace of mind.
