Planning travel for springtime? Or looking for an adventure to take on your next spring break vacation? We thought we would share with you our list of top spring vacations to take this year.
This may not seem like a typical spring destination, unless you're heading there for Mardi Gras, but surprisingly one of the main attractions is New Orleans fashion week. It usually takes place the second to third week in March and brings a lot of attention to the city. Of course you can do all of the New Orleans traditions like sipping coffee while eating a powdery beignet. Or if you are more of the adventurist type, take an airboat swamp tour. In this crazy town you will always be entertained.

Paris seems to make it on a lot of our lists, but that is because it is such a beautiful city and full of history and fun that we have to add it again here!

Explore the history and take a museum tour, or sight see on bike, boat or car. This city offers so much to any kind of traveler that you do not want to miss out on it.

The picture below is not an exaggeration of how pretty Holland is in the spring time! These Dutch Flowers grow all over the place and add a huge pop of color to the landscapes. Keukenhof is a beautiful park with the famous Dutch Flowers spread out everywhere! It truly looks like it is out of a fairy tale. One perk to spring time visits is that the garden is not open all year because the flowers go out of bloom. There is also a Keukenhof castle tour that you can take after you explore all of the gardens. Enjoy this quaint town of Lisse!
Closest airport: Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS / EHAM)
Laid back, relaxed, and serene are the three best words to describe Kauai. This island is a beautiful jungle. Less of a tourist spot than Maui, but still lots of people from out of town come to enjoy this incredible island. One day you could be a beach bum, the next hike up steep hills and make it to a beautiful waterfall. Kaui has incredible views from the sky, so if you get the opportunity to take the helicopter ride, do it! It will be one to remember.
