Best Places to Visit in April

The winter months are officially over, giving some of us a travel itch, especially if it’s to someplace warmer. Here are are some great places to visit in April.

Within the U.S., cities are coming alive with festivals and concerts. Consider visiting Indio,Screen Shot 2016-03-21 at 1.24.41 PM California for the famous Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and if time allows, extend your trip to Palm Springs. If you like different music, check out the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Or, if you are an athlete, take part in the Boston Marathon. One famous place to visit in the U.S. in April is Washington, D.C. for its’ beautiful bright pink and white cherry blossoms blooming. Near the Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin, visitors can walk among 3,000 cherry trees. April is a great time to plan a trip to New York City, where the city is bustling with spring activities. It’s also a great time to visit Florida before it gets too hot in the summer months. Finally, if you are a fan of golf, visit Augusta, Georgia for the Master’s Golf Tournament in April.

Near the U.S., Costa Rica has a long tourist season, making it an ideal place to visit most of the year. If you visit Costa Rica in April, look into visiting a sea turtle hatchery or enjoying the countries’ beautiful flora and fauna. Finally, still very close to the U.S. is the Caribbean. Consider visiting St. Croix, St. John, or St. Thomas. It’s also a great time to take a beach vacation to Mexico, Jamaica, or the Dominican Republic.

Always a great city to visit anytime of the year is Paris but it is especially breathtaking in the spring time. If you’re a fan of art, take a trip to Brussels, Belgium, which is home to some of the most famous pieces of art in the world. April is also the best time to visit the city as it’s the month with the least amount of rain.

We mentioned the cherry blossoms blooming in D.C. but why not visit their country of origin, Japan, for some great spring-themed festivals. Or, consider visiting Bali, Indonesia or Phuket, Thailand for great beach-themed destinations. Happy Travels!
