    Spring travel is starting to appear on the radar for agents, vacationers, and tour operators. Collette declares it a great time to travel, saying, “The weather is mild and the crowds haven’t shown up to all the prime locations yet. Prices are a bit lower still and since the summertime tourists haven’t arrived yet, you practically have the whole destination to yourself.”

    In anticipation of the season, the tour operator has compiled a list of “best bets” destinations that are perfect for spring travel:

    1) Amsterdam

    Here, you can witness winter’s departure and see “stunning and colorful blossoms and blooms that will take your breath away!” Collette says.

    2) The Grand Canyon

    The best thing about dropping by this iconic attraction in spring is the lack of summer crowds. Viewpoints that provide the most jaw-dropping vistas are all yours.

    3) Vancouver

    A wonderland of mountains and beaches, there is plenty of springtime nature to enjoy here. Vancouver-ites rejoice at the end of winter, putting on spring festivals that welcome everyone back outdoors. “You can literally feel the joy in the air!” Collette states.

    4) Cape Town

    Situated in the Southern Hemisphere, this beautiful South African city is actually experiencing fall during spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s a time of thin crowds, colorful foliage, nice weather and warm waters.

    5) London

    Experience this icon of a destination in spring with an un-crowded amble through “parks blooming with flowers and lush green grass and trees. The smell of spring is definitely in the air!” Collette declares.
