We’ve Got Spring Fever!

It’s March. In most parts of the country the sun is starting to peak through the clouds, temperatures are starting to warm up and you’re seriously in need of a break! When we were kids, we had Spring Break. Now, unless you have kids or are reliving your college days, that little escape may not exist. Well, I’m here to offer a little spring inspiration with some of my favorite destinations that will warm up those winter bones and get you ready for some summer fun!

$$$: $301 +

$$: $201-$300

$: < $201

Scottsdale, AZ

The red rocks and desert temps of Arizona, mixed with the style and flare of Los Angeles = Scottsdale. Great restaurants, awesome nightlife and totally relaxing spas await those looking for a quick, inexpensive (for the most part) escape!

$$$: The Sanctuary at Camel Back

$$: The Mondrian Scottsdale

$: W Scottsdale

Mexico

Mexico is a cheap Spring Break heaven for the college coeds. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find an amazing, luxury property sans boozing-it-up boneheads. Here are my three favorite Mexican getaways for any budget! (Book during the end of April, first of May for non-spring break prices)

$$$: The One & Only Pamilla

$$: Paradisus Riviera Cancun

$: Mosquito Beach Adult Only Hotel

Southern California

I love Spring on the West Coast. Whether it’s an Santa Monica, Laguna or San Diego; So-Cal has coastal towns offer great temps, plenty of sunshine and the perfect flip-flop experience that you need to help you mentally come out of Winter hibernation. (Avoid May Gray & June Gloom in parts of Southern California)

$$$: St. Regis Monarch Beach

$$: Shutters on the Beach – Santa Monica

$: Tower 23 – San Diego

Paris, France

This may sound a bit cliché, yes – but Spring in Paris is AMAZING! This is one of my favorite times to visit this incredibly modern, romantic and exciting city of love!

$$$: Hotel Daniel

$$: Hotel Le A

$: Hotel Clos Medicis

Marrakech, Morocco

Marrakech? Really? YES!!!! If you want something different and exciting- Marrakech offers the most bang for your buck! Culture & history mixed with a seductive sexiness that is found NO place else in this world!

$$$: Riad Lotus Privilege

$$: Villa des Orangers

$: Riad 72

    Kim,

    I just saw your spring fever blog, and thought you might be interested in hearing about some additional domestic options for your readers to consider this Spring.

    I wanted to let you know about the great Spring Savings taking place at One Ocean Resort Hotel & Spa in Atlantic Beach, Florida – – Northeast Florida’s newest beachfront resort.

    The resort is combining savings and sophistication this spring break with three special offers, starting at $259 and providing savings up to 38 percent. Packages are good now through the end of April and additional nights are available for the reduced rate of $150 per night.

    The resort is perfect for Spring Break as it is lined by the beach on one side and nestled directly across from the quaint shops, restaurants & ice cream parlors of the Beaches Town Center (meaning car keys can be ditched upon arrival). Not to mention each guest receives a personal docent to unpack clothing, and stock the complimentary in-room amenity cabinet with the family’s favorite snacks and beverages.

    Feel free to checkout the resort’s website to see how truly spectacular it really is:

    Also, please let me know if you are interested in seeing some of our great images.

    Best,
    Jordan
