Spring is the perfect time to take a trip to some of the world’s most beautiful destinations. It allows travelers to explore a new destination before the annual summer crowds roll in. During spring, there is usually milder weather in many popular travel destinations, less tourists, and better pricing when it comes to flights and lodging since it won’t usually be peak season.
