You no longer need to have your own Gulfstream to destination-hop by way of private plane. With this week's Escape, you will be checking must-sees of the Great West off your bucket list—all via airplane.

Mauvia AirCruise's Western Wonder Experience lets you bypass those long airport security lines (not to mention highway traffic) for seven days while you bounce between Monterey and Carmel, San Francisco, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Las Vegas.

The one-of-a-kind vacation service reaches new heights when it comes to details—from breakfast and dinner to the four-star accommodations every evening (all included). Daily itineraries are scheduled for each of your destinations, including ground transportation and tour guides.

Prices are per person, but double occupancy for the hotel stays each night, so Escapees must go sky-high with a copilot of their choice.

Departure dates to choose from include: July 22, 29, August 5, 6, 9, 13, 16, 21, 23, 28, September 2, 9, 13, 16, 23, and October 14. Every Escape begins and ends in Los Angeles.

Your first stop is Monterey, a seaside city known for its views of the rocky Pacific coastline. Gawk at the humpback and blue whales on your cruise with Chris' Whale Watching Tours and take a joyride along the 17-Mile Drive, one of the most scenic roads in the US.

Afterward, you will visit another majestic landscape, Point Lobos, a state natural reserve, where sea otters, seals, and sea lions can be spotted year round. According to legend, Robert Louis Stevenson was inspired to write his classic novel Treasure Island while strolling the beach near Point Lobos.

On Day two of your Escape, you land in San Francisco for a day of sights, a cruise to Alcatraz Island, and a tour of the jail. The next day, you venture outside the city to the Golden Gate Bridge and Park and the Sausalito and Muir Woods areas. Your day will be topped off with a wine tasting at Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery in Sonoma.

On Day four, after taking off to Fresno, you start your Yosemite adventure with a chance to see the Grizzly Giant. (The aptly named Giant Sequoia is more than 2,000 years old.) After lunch, you will be taken on a tour of Yosemite National Park to see the legendary Half Dome, El Capitain and Mirror Lake.

On day five, it's Vegas, baby!, with a visit to the Hoover Dam and some sightseeing on the docket. Day six will be the day you check the Grand Canyon off your list, before you cruise to Utah to visit Bryce Canyon National Park and Queen's Garden Trail.

And like magic­, you are back in Las Vegas for dinner (magic being a high-speed plane, of course). The schedule for the last day of your Escape is up to you: Stroll the slots or hit the shops before heading home to LA that evening.

This Escape is sure to answer the age-old question "why drive when you can fly?"—at a price that's a drop in a bucket.

  • "Pick the West Coast Tour for a week filled with the beauty of Monterey and Carmel, the hipness of San Francisco, the vastness of Yosemite, the impressiveness of the Grand Canyon, and the naughtiness of Las Vegas..."
