Tips for Spring Travel | FTBF Travel Community

This post has Spring travel tips to make sure you have the best things to do in the Spring months, with advice on weather, best festivals, and what events you should not miss for 2019.

London

Read our post on what to do in London for tips, weather, and special events in the city this Spring.

There might be some sunny weather in London this spring, but you’ll be guaranteed to see a few rainy days, so use our post on What to Do in London on a Rainy Day.

London might still have a bit of chill in the air and foggy, rainy weather in Spring so some of the best options for London in the Spring are the indoor museums, many of which are free and don’t require admission tickets. But for a ride on enclosed London Eye or a visit to Madame Tussaud’s, look into the tourist discount passes of London to save some money on admission.

And don’t forget we offer walking tours of London all year round!

New York

Find out what to do in New York for tips, weather, and special events in the city this Spring.

It’s also arguably the best month to visit Central Park, as the park is in full bloom season. We also offer guided and self-guided tours here.

As the weather gets nicer, you’ll want to be outside and taking a walking tour of the city is a great way to do that. For a list of all our tours available in April see at our schedule of tours.

We also compare and review the various bus tours and boat cruises available to you in NYC if you’d rather sightsee while sitting.

Washington DC

Here are our suggestions on what to do in DC for tips, weather, and special events in the city this Spring.

The highlight of a visit to DC in the Spring is the Cherry Blossoms. Our Essential Cherry Blossom Guide has everything you need to know from the best place to view the trees, to tours of the blossoms and more.

They come quickly and only stay for a short time, but we keep track of them! Follow us at @topthingstododc on Twitter for announcements!

Other things you may be interested in for a visit to Washington DC in the Spring:

 

Spring flowers do mean Spring showers. You can also use our Things to Do in DC in the Rain post for some ideas if the weather isn’t the best for being outside.

Most museums in DC are free and we even offer tours of some of the most popular Smithsonian Museums, but for those attractions like the Spy Museum, you can save money with a DC Tourist Pass!

Boston

Check out our post on what to do in Boston for tips, weather, and special events in the city this winter.

Keep in mind that St. Patrick’s Day is an official city holiday in Boston so city government offices are closed!

As one of our northern most cities, Boston may still be cold-ish earlier in the Spring, but you’ll still be able to join us on our Freedom Trail tour.

There are many indoor options in Boston to get you out of the cold or rainy weather of Spring and many of them are included in the various Boston tourist passes, read more about those here.

New Orleans

Spring is the ideal time to explore flora, but for New Orleans you have the unique chance to include swamps in that! Use our swamp tour post as guide to help you plan this aspect of your trip.

One of the biggest draws to New Orleans is Jazz and Spring affords a number of festivals including the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival (April) better known as “Jazz Fest” by locals, is a very exciting activity for music lovers.

If the weather isn’t the best, you can always hop on a bus tour, some of which are included on the New Orleans tourist discount passes.
