Though the weather in various parts of the country may say otherwise, it’s officially spring! Spring is one of the best seasons—everything is freshly watered from the winter rain, and the temperature outside is just right. So with spring upon us, what better way to relax and enjoy the outdoors than to travel? Here are 7 beautiful destinations you should definitely vacation to this spring.

1. New Orleans, Louisiana

Now that Mardi Gras is over, the city of New Orleans has calmed down. While New Orleans may be known for its craziness, it is also a beautiful city surrounded with so much history. Plus, the food is amazing. Gumbo and Cafe du Monde, anyone?
