3. Washington, D.C.

Some people think that countries’ capitals are somehow overrated, but not our capital. Washington, D.C., is one of the most beautiful places in America, and the national museums and monuments there are so pretty and lovely that it’s impossible not to find something you like.

This is one of the best destinations for spring vacations in the US, and if you like visiting places and walking, you’re in for a treat. You can burn some calories and improve your heart health by walking to all these pretty tourist spots, being amazed by how gorgeous everything looks, and then taking a snack break in all these lovely coffee shops and fancy restaurants, such as at Minibar.

While this spring vacation in the US might not be the most affordable one (Washington is one of the most expensive cities in America), you’ll have the time of your life there. You can discover the beauty of the city under the night sky, and you will see important national monuments only by the moonlight, such as the Jefferson Memorial, Capitol Hill, Lincoln Memorial, and so many other things.

You can rent a bike or book a regular tour to see the prettiest cherry blossoms ever. Their smell, color, and natural beauty will leave you speechless, so don’t forget to take pictures and soak everything in. This will surely become one of the best spring vacations in the US!

If you have no idea where to stay, you can check out The Generator Hotel, which combines special social events with luxury but budget-friendly options, or you can take a look at the Westin Georgetown, which is very popular and only a mile away from the White House.

4. Isla Verde, Puerto Rico

If you’re one of those people who enjoy being in nature and having fun under the beautiful sky, Isla Verde, Puerto Rico, might be the perfect destination for your much-needed spring vacation in the US.

People who love sandy beaches, tropical weather, and shimmering turquoise waters will have the time of their lives here. One of the best things you could do here is to explore the El Yunque rainforest, which is the only tropical rainforest in America. You can learn all about how rainforests work, take a hike through the forest, observe all of nature’s beauties, and be amazed by the giant waterfalls. An adventure to remember.

You can soak up the sun and get a gorgeous tan, swim in the stunning waters, or get a great adrenaline boost by taking a jet ski tour. Fun, adventurous, yet relaxing! That’s my kind of destination for a wonderful spring vacation in the US! What’s yours?

5. Solvang, California

Who said that these spring vacations in the US couldn’t have a European flair? If you don’t believe us, keep reading. Solvang is a beautiful village in California and a top-notch place where retirees can have fun.

Discover the rich history of California through the eyes of Spanish missionaries as you tour the stunning Old Mission Santa Ynez, which is centrally located in this pretty village. If you love wine and want to have fun with testing, there are several wineries around Solvang. This place is the Santa Ynez Valley, the home of the finest wine country and vineyards, so you won’t have a problem discovering something for yourself.

And while you’re in Solvang, you have to eat the right way. The Danish food is to die for, so go to Bit O’ Denmark to enjoy an exquisite meal and to Olsen’s Danish Village Bakery to grab a snack. Their pastries are the best in town!

If you don’t know what accommodation to choose for your spring vacation in the US, I recommend you check out the Wine Valley Inn. It’s very close to Solvang, it offers a free hot breakfast, and the rooms are very roomy.
