Vacation For April

The days will be getting longer and the weather is slowly improving. It won’t be long before the snow is a distant memory. April is here, which means it’s time for my monthly vacation. This month I’ll be visiting Barcelona, San Sebastian, and Salamanca in Spain.

If you can’t take vacation right this minute, take a mental one. Bookmark this random blog post we found on the internet and come back to it any time you’re looking for a fun read. You’ve earned it.

Hey everyone! April here, letting you all know that I’ll be out for a little bit for maternity leave! I’m having a baby girl and she’s due right before the end of the month. I’ll be taking next week and then coming back after that! I’ll see you guys again soon!

I’ll be going on vacation for a few weeks. Since I’m not sure when I’ll return, you can use this as an opportunity to schedule a follow-up interview with someone else in the company.

Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” This is one of my favorite quotes because it’s so true. You can’t build an amazing life without giving back. Give your best, in whatever moment you are creating it – whether you are teaching, working or playing. That’s where you’ll experience fulfillment and achieve ultimate results —more than any vacation could ever offer.

Vacation For April

April is a month of new beginnings (hello, budding blooms); revitalization (we missed your energy, sunshine); and awesome deals on vacations. Whether you’re hoping to visit Europe, the Caribbean, or as far away as Indonesia, there are a ton of incredible places to travel in April.

A bonus: April is considered the shoulder season in many tropical destinations, which means travelers can enjoy cheap hotel rates and comfortable temperatures before the influx of summer crowds and stifling summer heat set in.

For the winter warriors who are not ready to let go of the snowy season, places like Lake Tahoe still have skiing for end-of-the-season runs. Whether you want to tackle some hiking in the Rocky Mountains or witness the breathtaking cherry blossoms in peak bloom in Japan, you can fill your picture book with memories in April.

Plan your trip with our list of the best places to travel in April.

1. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The month of April is an ideal window to visit Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, when the weather is comfortable, and rates for hotel rooms are more affordable. This month rests between the high season in the winter and the rush of summer tourists, when hotel and airfare rates skyrocket.

Temperatures are pleasant and rain is almost non-existent in April, meaning more days for enjoying the beautiful beaches and better opportunities to stroll the street markets to find souvenirs or taste some culinary dishes beachside. There is no shortage of things to do in Puerto Vallarta.

You will enjoy your time exploring the historic sites, like the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe during the day and walking along the Boardwalk Malecon to soak in the views of the ocean in the evenings, where you can catch a free dance performance at the amphitheater.

2. Moab, Utah

If a visit to the red rock canyons of Moab, Utah is on your bucket list, then planning a trip in April is a great time of year to do it. Early spring is a perfect time for hiking in Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, when the weather is cooler and the summer tourists are still a few months away. The climate is perfect for outdoor activities like mountain biking or taking the three-mile trek to capture the iconic image of the Delicate Arch and see this national treasure up close.

Many people travel to Moab for the incredible hiking and unforgettable canyon views but there are so many other things to do in Moab, from biking and horseback riding to taking a four-wheeler trek through the national parks.

You will want to plan ahead when making reservations and add enough days to your stay to get in everything that you want to do, especially if you plan to do a lot of hiking.

3. London, England

While April lands during the peak tourist season in London, it is the best time to visit for the spring blooms and mild weather conditions. Your only downside will be the flood of other tourists who also love to visit London in the spring.

But in fairness, London is quite crowded pretty much every month of the year. If you are going to pay a premium for accommodations, you may as well visit when the weather is comfortable and the gardens are in full bloom. Kew Gardens is unmissable at this time of year, and you’ll want to carve out some time to wander through HydeRegent, and Richmond Parks.

April is a great time to take advantage of the best scenery, from the top London attractions like the Tower of London and the beauty surrounding Buckingham Palace and Kensington Gardens.

4. Venice, Italy

April is a great month to visit the historic Italian city of Venice. The weather is comfortable, with spring temperatures starting to emerge and less humidity than in the summer months. You’ll be able to enjoy dining on your homemade pasta al fresco, as long as you pack a sweater, that is.

As for tourists, the boom does not start for several months, so you will still have plenty of elbow room to enjoy local attractions and gondola rides along the Grand Canal. Take advantage of fewer crowds as you explore St. Mark’s Square and St. Mark’s Basilica.

April is a beautiful time to see Venice, and hotel rates are still at a lower level than in the busy summer tourist season.

5. Yangzhou, China

Yangzhou is one of the best places to travel in April. The reason is made clear as soon as you catch sight of its stunning flowers and rare and ancient bonsai trees. During April, everything in Yangzhou blossoms into an Instagram-worthy glory.

A popular Chinese destination, Yangzhou lies in the Jiangsu Province, which borders the Yangtze River. The city is known for its gardens, like the Ge Garden and the elaborate floral displays on offer at Slender West Lake. There are also more than 200, centuries-old miniature private gardens located throughout the ancient city.

Beyond the colorful variety of flowers throughout the city and in the public gardens, Yangzhou is known for its history of producing scholars, poets, artists, and famous geishas. You can find outdoor evening performances among the gardens at Slender West Lake and enjoy a cultural experience detailing the city’s history through music, dance, and poetry.

6. Amsterdam, Netherlands

By April, winter’s icy chill has left Amsterdam, making it a more enjoyable time to wander around the Dutch city’s iconic canals and interesting neighborhoods. While you may run into a spot of rain, Amsterdam’s impressive museums, like the Ann Frank HouseVan Gogh Museum, and Rijksmuseum, are the perfect places to take cover.

Temperatures hover in the high 50s Fahrenheit but can jump, so layers are your best bet. Aim to be here for King’s Day on April 27th if you want to see the city decked out in all its orange glory. Decorated boats pack the canals, live music is pumped through the streets, a city-wide market opens, and plenty of delicious treats are on offer.

Wander through colorful Jordaan, enjoying its unique markets, boutique shopping, and tasty restaurants before boarding a boat cruise. The NEMO Science Museum is especially worthy of a visit, if only to gaze at the creative contemporary design.

7. Lake Tahoe, California

If you have a hard time letting go of winter and want to push your skiing opportunities out as long as possible, an April trip to Lake Tahoe is in order. This recreational area in the Sierra Nevada Mountains sits on the state line between California and Nevada, where the snowcapped mountains enable skiing to last later than most places in the United States.

The hard-core snow bunnies can take advantage of the cool daytime temperatures to log a few more runs on the slopes. The other advantages of visiting Lake Tahoe in April are the smaller crowds and lower prices as the ski season comes to an end. You may also find cheaper prices at luxury resorts around Lake Tahoe.

There are many Lake Tahoe ski areas and resorts that have ski trails, and some have even remained open until June in some years.
