Spring-series III.

For travelers seeking affordable prices, small crowds and pleasant weather, spring is the perfect time of year to travel. Many destinations are at their best during the spring, when temperatures are warm but not too hot, lively seasonal festivals are going on, and blooming flowers set parks and gardens ablaze with color.

Our stunning spring destinations are wonderful to visit throughout the year, but each place is especially dazzling and unforgettable in the spring.

Paris, France

There are lots of reasons that the old song lauds 
Paris in the spring, but here's just one of many: the city's famous gardens and parks are simply breathtaking this time of year.

A few days of strolling past 17th-century fountains, banana trees, roses and majestic sculptures nestled in the leafy hidden corners of Parisian gardens will make you too fall in love with springtime in the City of Lights.

The Netherlands

You've seen pictures of those iconic flower fields in the Dutch countryside, but a real-life look at the massive fields is an unforgettable and astonishing experience.

The Keukenhof Gardens, open from March to May, are one of the best places to see more than seven million tulips in full, vivid splendor.

Another fantastic way to see Holland's flower fields is to take a bicycle tour along the Flower Bulb Route in North Holland.

April is the best month to go to the Netherlands if you want to see blooming daffodils, and for the best views of the tulip fields at their peak, visit in May.
