Spring is starting to bloom and one of the things I'm most excited about is Spring travel! Winter travel is fun, but can be so unreliable and downright annoying between the frigid temperatures and massive amount of snow we've been getting. Spring means longer days, a little bit more sun, and easier packing since you don't need as many heavy sweaters and boots.
If you are itching for a Spring getaway, here are a few of my favorite places that are perfect for an easy long weekend!
This area is a go to destination for most New Yorkers, for good reason! It's close and easy to get to and full of beautiful scenery pretty much anytime of year. Stay somewhere super hip like Scribners Lodge, and leave plenty of time for everything from scenic hikes to wine tasting.
It seems farther than it really is, but in a quick 5 hour flight you'll be in one of the most beautiful, charming city I've ever seen. I've been twice, and each time it didn't disappoint. Plus by the time April starts to roll around I'm pretty much dying for some beach time, so the location is just perfect!
Flights into most major cities are easy to be found, and you'll beat peak tourist season by going this time of year. I don't love the beaches or coastal cities in Spring, but Florence, Rome, Tuscany, and Milan are all great options for a getaway.
If the islands are your thing, Bermuda is the best choice for a long weekend trip. It's a smooth 90 minute flight to pink sand beaches and charming colorful scenery. It can be a little pricey, so try to look out for deals that will make it more affordable.
