Spring is here. And while it’s a weird time to be thinking of travel with news of COVID-19, more commonly known as coronavirus, making its way around the world and into cities and countries we all know and love, travel is still something that’s on our minds.
And while traveling abroad might seem like a risk you’re not willing to take right now, life around the world continues and the local guides and small tour operators that rely on tourism as their main source of income need you now – and in the future months – more than ever.
So, while I’ve asked some of my favorite travel experts to weigh in on the best spring destinations to visit this year, there’s always spring 2021 to start planning and looking forward to. Fall is also a pretty incredible time to check a new, beautiful destination off your bucket list as well, if you need a trip to look forward to sooner rather than later.
Until then, here are a few picture-perfect spring destinations to inspire your next vacation.
