Five Warm Weather Getaways for April

Author: , March 1st, 2014

Hawaii BeachWe’ve got something to lift your spirits today: As we move into spring break season, resorts throughout the Caribbean and eastern Mexico are likely to be either booked solid, or selling at a premium. Come April and early May, however, we’ll start to see those prices go down. For an early spring getaway, plan on kicking back on a remote island in South Carolina, St. Croix, or enjoying a stay at one of New Orleans’ most historic hotels.

Edisto Island, SC

With round-trip flights to Charleston at a seasonal low of $315 (from NYC and Chicago) in mid-April, this sunny southern port town is perfect for a visit right now. Located an hour west of the city is peaceful Edisto Island, characterized by wild marshes, pristine beaches, and, the 4000-acre Botany Bay Plantation, a favorite among nature lovers.

April and especially May are the perfect months to get a feel for this unspoiled coastal town, which has a series of local events taking place, ranging from the Lowcoutry Classic High School Golf Tournament (April 4-6), an Arts and Crafts Show (April 19), and, later on in May, the Edisto Day Bazzar (May 3).

Puerto Rico

In Puerto Rico the locals are friendly, the beaches are beautiful and the nightlife is hot. Check out Condado beach, where the gay sun-worshippers tend to gather. Puerto Rico might seem like an exotic paradise, but don’t forget: it is a U.S. territory so the dollar is the currency and almost everyone speaks English.
