Spring is on our mind at Fox World Travel and what better way to spend our time than daydreaming about exploring some fresh landscapes as everything is in bloom! This list highlights just a few of the flourishing destinations that are awaiting your exploration this spring!
Kauai, Hawaii– visit scenes from Jurassic Park on the Garden Isle. The lush green environment will make you feel like you’re put right in the middle of the Jurassic World set. The best views in Kauai can be found while paddle boarding on the Wailua River, driving down the Waimea Canyon coast to the lookout points above the clouds or hiking to the base of the 400-foot-high Manawaiopuna Falls.
Belize– a short flight to Belize will introduce you to adventure in Central America this spring. Snorkeling opportunities abound at the Hol Cahn Marine Reserve in San Pedro while Actun Tunichil Muknal Archaelogical Reserve in Cayo allows travelers to explore Mayan caves. If you want to live on the wild side, you can get up close and personal with sharks at Shark Ray Alley. The beaches are phenomenal and the official language is English, making Belize a no-brainer for thrill-seeking travelers and those who just need a warm getaway after a long winter.
Lisse, Holland– take a day trip outside of Amsterdam to see the delicate tulips in full bloom. Holland‘s Keukenhof Gardens are a must-see with the 2016 theme of “The Golden Age.” More than seven million bulbs are blooming this spring and Keukenhof will be showing off 800 varieties of tulips in eight themed gardens, with The Golden Age garden on spotlight. This tulipomania is on show from March 24-May 16.
Florence, Italy– less tourists crowd the streets of major European cities during the spring, making springtime a great time to visit Italy. The weather is warming up and many spring festivals are being celebrated, including some focused solely on gelato and the many gelaterias in Florence! For the best view of the world-famous Duomo, we suggest that you spend an afternoon at Giardino delle Rose or Giardino dell’Iris, two of the most beautiful (and free) gardens in the city. Make sure to pack your camera or a sketchpad for these views!
Kyoto and Tokyo– spring is the best season in this region as the cherry blossom (sakura) season is in full swing. The blooming of cherry blossom trees symbolizes human life and nobleness, and the Japanese love to celebrate these beautiful trees with major festivals in Tokyo and Kyoto. You can’t go to Japan and not see these!
We hope that you are as excited as we are to explore these beautiful destinations this spring! For more information on these select springtime travel destinations, contact one of Fox World Travel’s highly specialized travel consultants for more information!
