After nearly two-and-a-half months of 2016 bookings, travel agents are dishing on the year’s hottest destinations so far. We’re not giving away any hints here — click to find out the places travelers are gravitating toward as of right now.

Nine Six Flags parks are about to unveil virtual reality-augmented repurposed roller coasters this spring. In this debut, the headgear will allow riders to “fly” alongside Superman and at other parks, the VR will be a fighter jet experience. Click to see which Six Flags locations will have this new feature.

Walt Disney World Resort just announced a sprawling event called “Awaken Summer,” that will involve new experiences across all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

Our series of primary/caucus travel guides continues, and next up is Ohio and Florida.

Click to find out more about each state’s go-to attractions.

The formula for an Easter Egg hunt is simple: hide the eggs, then a group of kids finds them. But there are places around the country that take this simple formula to the next level. The folks in Copper Mountain, CO, will be hiding 65,000 eggs across 500,000 acres, while Disney is conducted an egg-themed scavenger hunt at multiple parks. Then there’s the traditional (nonpartisan) White House Easter Egg Roll. Click to see what other grand/unusual egg quests are planned for the coming weeks.
