“From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April dress’d in all his trim
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
That heavy Saturn laugh’d and leap’d with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew;
Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seem’d it winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play”- William Shakespeare (Sonnet 98)
Spring has sprung and everywhere the creator has spread beautiful vibrant colors in nature’s landscape. Flowers, fruits, new leaves and the sunshine hue on them is awesome to watch. There is spring beak at the colleges and universities even extended to the Easter holiday in some institutions.
Also Spring is the ideal time to visit most popular vacation destinations. Before the peak summer crowds roll in, travelers can often find pleasant temperatures, fewer tourists and affordable lodging and airfare rates. In fact, the season’s just kicking into gear, seeing as the cherry blossoms haven’t blossomed, and that magical sundress day remains imminent here are the eight most beautiful places in the country to visit this spring.
1. Washington DC
Washington DC is most beautiful springtime destinations you can visit when it is blanketed in pink when each of its thousands of cherry blossoms comes into bloom. Around mid-April, you’ll glimpse over 3,000 cherry blossom trees accentuating the capital’s impressive monuments.
You canattend the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which takes place from the last week in March to the second week in April. You can view the flowers up close, or participate in the cherry blossom parade, the blossom kite festival, or the Pink Tie Party fundraiser. You’ll want to start your tours early, as the festival brings some 1.5 million visitors to the nation’s capital.
2. Savannah Georgia
Springtime brings Savannah at its best, with friendly people, and plenty of sweet tea to slake your thirst. You can adore the architecture from conservative Victorian Regency and Federal houses to grandiose Italianate and Greek Revival mansions. With 22 town squares overflowing with Spanish moss, colorful azaleas, spectacular fountains, and historic monuments, you can grab a drink on the riverfront and watch the ships come in, or hop on a trolley for an informative tour of the city’s historic district. Also it’s pretty cheap to fly there from a number of big cities, so you’ll see a charming Southern city at a pretty price point.
3. Holland Michigan
Holland, Michigan, is an outpost of Dutch culture and tradition in the midst of the American Midwest, home to dikes, canals and even an authentic Dutch windmill. Proud of its heritage, the city purchased 100,000 tulip bulbs from the Netherlands back in 1927, and these colourful flowers still fill the city’s gardens and parks with colour annually, just in time for the famous Tulip Time Festival, attended by over half a million people every year. The festival celebrates the state’s Dutch heritage and features three parades, carnival rides, and traditional Dutch food. You don’t want to miss this stunning spring getaway do you?
4. The Grand Canyon
After compiling data on traveler and expert recommendations, the U.S. News & World Report named the Grand Canyon the number one spring escape. Because spring is the offseason, you’ll enjoy shorter lines and better views. Most visitors spend three nights/two full days and then go to other parks such as Bryce (where it could be snowy) or Zion( where it should be very nice). There is a smooth water raft trip there in April.
You’ll likely find a slew of seasonal deals and festivals, as well as discounted airfare and lodging, too. Plus, it’s never cold (during the day) here, making it the perfect place to go in those early weeks of spring where the weather is still iffy.
5. Ennis Texas
Ennis is a city in Ellis County, located south of Dallas. It is the official Bluebonnet City of Texas. Head here in mid-April to view the prairie in its most beautiful form covered in wildflowers. Because the flowers are such an attraction, the city’s visitor’s bureau keeps tabs on where the best flowers are on the trails at all times.
6. Charleston South Carolina
Live Oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss hang over the spring flowers of the azalea bloom at Magnolia Plantation along the Ashley River near Charleston SC. Spring in Charleston offers a stunning array of colorful blossoms nestled in historical settings that evoke visions of scenes long forgotten. Delight in hanging moss, cobblestone streets, and historic mansions. Also because of year-round pleasant temperatures, you might even hit a beach day in March or April. At the very least, take a stroll through Charleston Waterfront Park for lovely views of the Cooper River.
7. Branson Missouri
Tucked amid the Ozark Mountains, Branson’s Table Rock Lake, Bull Shoals Lake, and Lake Taneycomo boast some of the clearest water in the region, while lush green, lakeside grounds have made the area a prime golf destination. But it’s got more than just resort good looks; there’s a rustic feel to its Twin Peaks-style wood cabins, dotted about forestland full of pine trees.
Branson has been described as the Midwest’s answer to Las Vegas before, which might not be the best compliment on Earth, and the real charm is found away from its tacky tourist “strip.”
8. Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
Swing into spring at one of the world’s top golf destinations. Coeur d’Alene is home to the famous floating green and several other beautiful and challenging courses. As the weather starts to warm, it’s time to head outside. In the city, don’t miss the Downtown Art Walk, the Wine Extravaganza, the weekly Downtown Farmer’s Market, Live After 5, and Car d’Lane.
Besides these beautiful places to visit you can also enjoy lots of spring festivities going on in the country like the New York sounds of spring international music festival or the Spoleto Festival or the Tucson Tango festival being celebrated in Casino Del Sol.
