Spring is finally upon us. We’ve borne the worst of winter. Most of the battering storms and the grey skies are behind us.
Daylight has begun to linger further into the evenings; the air, is still cool and crisp, and the season’s first blooms are breaking through the frosted earth. At the first signs of the thaw, I cannot help but feel an unshakable wanderlust – the desire to hop in a car or a plane and break my months-long hibernation by exploring a new city.

The tourist crowds have thinned, the tickets and rental prices have dropped, it’s easier to book last minute, and it is the best time to beat the heat of summer in warmer climates. Allow me to share 5 amazing locales and the best things to do and see this spring.
