Spring. A time of resurrection and rejuvenation. And if you are anything like me, the first bug you encounter on these deliciously bright and sunshiny days is the travel bug. Here are a few of the top places for spring travel.
New York & Washington DC
Many will tell you spring is the best time to be in the Big Apple. New productions open on Broadway, the Empire State Building gets colorful in honor of the New York Spring Spectacular, and you can catch free concerts every Thursday at Trinity Church. And a few hours away, the US capital, Washington DC, positively explodes with flowers in April. With over 3,000 cherry trees in bloom near the Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin, it is a floral display that simply can’t be missed. Cosmos can help you hit all of the major attractions on their New York, Niagara Falls & Washington DC tour, which also includes two nights in beautiful Niagara Falls and an overnight stay in Philadelphia.
Head further East and celebrate spring with a Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) picnic in one of the many parks, or better yet enjoy viewing them at Matsumoto Castle, one of the most beautiful and complete original Japanese castles. With Trafalgar’s Splendors of Japan tour you can also spend a day at Mt. Fuji, two nights in the beautiful hillside town of Takayama in the Japanese Alps and enjoy a special lunch at a traditional ryokan nestled in the peace and quiet of Mt. Yoshida in Kyoto, and more on this journey of discovery.
Paris & London
As the song says “I love Paris in the springtime”. View blooming flowers in the Square Louise Michel in Montmartre, the most famous Parisian artist area, dancing water features at the Gardens of Versaille, the Champs-Elysées and Arc de Triomphe in Paris. See the Big Ben and Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace in London. Globus’ London & Paris tour will bring you to these must-see attractions and more.
