Last but not least, a final one for the "it's never too early to start planning for next year" department, Macon, Georgia's International Cherry Blossom Festival is regarded as the best in the South. Visit this charming town for nearly two full weeks of cherry blossom-filled fun in late March. Events include nightly concerts, balloon flights, carnival rides, food truck gatherings and more blossoms than you can squeeze into one selfie.
