Spring

Although we have only just entered the New Year, you may already be thinking about taking a break somewhere exotic – and why not? If you simply can’t wait until the warm summer months then fear not; we’ve compiled a list of the best places to visit during the spring. Whether you are looking for a relaxing or action-packed break, we have the perfect destination for you. 

New York City

The Big Apple is arguably wonderful any time of the year, but there’s something about it in spring, when the cherry blossom blooms and the year’s baseball season begins, that is truly spectacular. There is no shortage of things to see and do in New York during the spring, including checking out the latest art exhibitions at MOMA or sampling the new seasonal menu at [hotel].

New York is always playing host to various parades, especially during springtime, such as the Annual Dance Parade. Join in the fun and shake your money maker as people take to the streets to celebrate the art of dance. 

Croatia

Croatia is rapidly becoming a popular destination for tourists worldwide. Perhaps that is owed to itscollection of picturesque beaches or the vibrant culture that fills it – either way it is the ideal place to visit during spring.

There is plenty to see and do in Croatia during springtime, such as taking part in the Wine & Jazz Festival, an event celebrating Dalmatian food and jazz music, or the annual Easter Fair.

Many people choose to visit Croatia during the summer months, meaning that an Easter trip there will guarantee an escape from crowds of other tourists, leaving you to appreciate the country’s beauty without distraction. 

Washington D.C.

There’s nothing quite like visiting America’s capital during the springtime, especially when the famous cherry blossom is in bloom, a beautiful tree gifted from the mayor of Tokyo in 1912. Nowadays D.C. celebrates the blooming with the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, an event now spanning two weeks, and filled with plenty of fun and exciting activities.

Easter is always a special time of year in the capital as well, with events like the White House Easter Egg Roll taking place every year. Children of all ages can go hunting for Easter eggs on the White House’s front lawn, an occasion always anticipated by adults and kids alike. 

Miami

If you’re looking for somewhere eccentric to celebrate Spring Break then look no further than Miami. For decades, Miami has been the number one spot for teenagers and adults looking to celebrate this time of year with style.

Whether you’re in the mood to relax on the beach or party in one of the city’s many raving nightclubs, Miami has it all to offer. It is also home to countless trendy restaurants, specialising in the latest tasty fads, and a string of shopping malls which house world-recognised brands.

Personally, we recommend enjoying a cocktail on one of Miami’s rooftop bars and watching the sun set over South Beach.
