Link Friday: The Spring Travel Edition

Posted on Thursday, March 27, 2014 by Kate

Technically, spring is here. And if you’re anything like me, it’s time to start thinking about a vacation to a place that is spring in practice as well as in theory.

  • Spring is a great time to travel because rates are generally lower than during the summer. For example, rooms in places like Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle are down between 13-20% at this time of year and in some international destinations, like Turkey, they’ve dropped almost 30%.
  • There’s a new travel trend taking hold this spring: hobby travel. Vacations dedicated to exploring your favorite books and authors, wine tasting, scientific research, religion – you get the idea.
  • In case you haven’t grasped the power of photography in travel marketing, check out these gorgeous photo albums of spring around the world.
  • In the mood for a road trip this spring? RV sales and rentals are on the rise.
