The Five Best Places to Visit in the Spring

Spring is a wonderful time to travel. The mild weather is welcoming. Prices are a bit lower still and since the summertime tourists haven’t arrived yet, you practically have the whole destination to yourself.

Unsure where to spend this season? Say no more; these destinations are sure to put a spring in your step:

1) Amsterdam

It is an absolute delight to visit Amsterdam in spring. Watch winter layers melt away to make way for stunning and colourful blossoms and blooms that will take your breath away.

2) The Grand Canyon

One of the best reasons to visit the Grand Canyon in springtime is to avoid the huge summer rush. Enjoy clear paths to lookout points over the most majestic and iconic sites without waiting in line or getting a stranger’s head in your photos.

3) Cape Town

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And our springtime is actually their autumn. It’s a time when crowds thin, foliage pops with colour. The weather is still lovely and the water is warm.

4) London

Spring is the perfect time enjoy all that is wonderful about this iconic destination just before it becomes even busier in the summertime. See the parks blooming with flowers and lush green grass and trees. The smell of spring is definitely in the air.

5) Louisville

Spring marks the beginning of baseball season, making it a great time to visit this Kentucky city’s iconic Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. This season is a great time to scope out the lively distillery scene and the electric energy that comes from the Kentucky Derby.
