Spring is probably the most controversial time of the year, because its beauty is geographically influenced. How’s that? Well, let’s take a short look at where you live. If it’s central east, your spring bursts out with colors and flowers, and warmth in the end of March.
However, if you live in the west near the mountains or in Canada, March is still winter cold, while in the south April can be suddenly hot as hell and you miss out spring at all.
So, in case you are not OK with spring in your regions, we offer best vacation spots to travel in April.
Places to travel in spring:
- San Diego
- Puerto Vallarta
A quick tip. In springtime, there is a drop in the flow of tourists in many areas, so you can get cheap tickets and hotels.
1. California – San Diego
San Diego is an exotic place with its specific vibe. Located in the most southern point of the West Coast, it stuns visitors with long sandy beaches. It boasts sunshine and mild climate with annual temperature steadily over 40 degrees at any time of the year. The Gaslamp Quarter, Berkeley Pizza, Bolillo Tortas, as well as entertainment districts and fairs will keep you very busy.
Tip: the cheapest hotels in San Diego are near the University of San Diego’s campus.
2. Mexico – Puerto Vallarta
One of your spring trips should be to the tropical city of Puerto Vallarta, located on the coastline. It has basically two seasons: a dry and a wet one.
Tip: it’s the best to look for the special package deals closer to May.
3. Georgia – Savannah
This Southeast city is probably one of the most charming for the lovers of history. It’s downtown can be easily called the museum of the 18th century with well-preserved architecture, parks, streets, and the Victorian District.
There are numerous beach communities for people who adore water sports and entertainment: St. Simons Islands, Hilton Head, Jekyll, and Tybee.
Tip for group travelers: rent a beachfront house located on one of the islands, or close to the center of the town.
4. Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C. has an expensive reputation, but its climate beats it, believe me. It is perfect for those who like to wander around the city. It offers a number of low-cost places to visit such as museums, architectural masterpieces and other cultural institutions and public places like the National Mall or Rock Creek Park.
Tip: activities in the city get higher during the Cherry Blossom Festival in early April or late March.
5. New England – Vermont
Its sweetest spot lies between the middle of March and mid-May. Flowers begin to show up by mid-April, and if you come in March, you are more likely to see the leaving of winter and spring coming into town. Moreover, you can get good discounts in the ski areas such as Okemo or Sugarbush.
Tip: the low season in Vermont is well-defined and falls between March and May.
