Well, because half of the fun can be exploring different ideas of where to go! If you need a quick break from work or come home from a long day, it’s always refreshing to imagine a sunny vacation. A fun and perfect way to research ideas of where to travel, is to browse on Pinterest!

March Travel

Spring Break is a time for people to take off a few days, or even a week, from their everyday life, in order to do things such as:

  • Relax
  • Travel
  • Try something new
  • Have an adventure
  • Reconnect with friends and family

The list goes on! Whether you have kids, go to college, work full-time, or even if you’ve already raised a whole family, it is important to take a few days out of the year for yourself. While some people get to do this over the winter holidays, springtime is another great chance to take a break from the everyday duties of life. If you don’t already have the time off, then work to add it into your schedule! March is a great month to start! Here are some ideas:

  1. Last-Minute Ski Getaways – While warm weather is appealing to most, you still have some time to hit the slopes. Visit Bretton Woods, New Hampshire!
  2. National Cherry Blossom Festival – This festival kicks off on the first day of spring, in the nation’s capital, and runs through April 13th.
  3. Maple Sugaring Season – Vermont, Michigan, and Connecticut, are all great maple syrup season states. This season starts in March, when “warmer days and cool nights cause the sugar maples’ sap to start flowing once again.”
  4. Spring Break, Away From the Crowds – Visit St. Barts for a great vacation away from other travelers.
  5. March Madness Travel – Tour some of the Best College Basketball Towns.
  6. St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations – Head to Boston, Chicago, or even Ireland for some of the biggest celebrations. Take a look at some of the best St. Patrick’s Day celebrations around the world.
  7. South by Southwest – This annual festival has showcased the latest trends in film, interactive media and music for over 25 years. (Keep an eye out for future content about this festival, because I’ll be going 🙂 )
