We have the perfect setting for fires: thousands of acres of wilderness with rugged terrain and few roads; rainy winter weather that allows grass and brush to grow, followed by months of hot, dry weather; prevailing winds as well as sundowner winds; and people, who are the cause of most fires.

Another popular resort town for vacationers heading to Mexico, Cabo San Lucas, at the tip of Baja California, is known for beautiful beaches, stunning resorts, and a fun nightlife scene. Low season brings low rates during August and September, along with rain; high season mirrors that of other destinations in Mexico with most crowds flocking to the beaches between mid-December and Easter.

One of the most popular areas for tourism in Mexico, particularly with Americans, is the Yucatan Peninsula's destination of Cancun. It's a hot and humid region for most of the year, but that doesn't keep the crowds away. In fact, that's why they're here. December and January attract those wanting a bit of winter sun (and who want to make the most out of holiday vacation days). Mid-February through April is Spring Break for U.S. college students, who flock to the resorts for a week of partying. If you want to go to Cancun or the nearby island of Cozumel during this time, you're going to have to plan way ahead to make sure you get the hotel and flights you want. The other high season in this area tends to be July and August when both domestic and international tourists tend to go on vacation, though it can be rainy. In that vein, keep an eye out for hurricanes during the summer. The worst weather tends to hit the area between July and October — and while the prices bottom out during these months, it may or may not be worth the weather risk.

Manchester is a popular getaway in southern Vermont, tucked up high in the Green Mountains.

With mild to warm weather, Spanish moss hanging everywhere and tons of history, Savannah makes an awesome spring getaway.

  • Updated

A bit farther up the East Coast than Savannah, Charleston is equally as packed with tradition and history, all wrapped in an impossibly pretty package that's been charming visitors for a long time. And like much of the South, mid-to-late spring can be beach season here. While the water will be chilly, daytime temperatures often merit showing a little skin and soaking up the sun.

There’s no way around it: Miami is one of the priciest cities to visit in the United States. Given its legendary status as a mecca for parties, beaches, luxury services, amazing restaurants, art and nightlife, the city has enough pull to make it a hotspot year round. While the winter months and early spring are high season — and thus mean paying a premium on everything from flights to hotels — there are ways to save.

Oh, Miami — so blessed and so cursed at the same time. While the city sits firmly in the hurricane zone and has been victim to several major storms in the past, the largest current threat is fair-weather flooding due to climate change. These floods are most often associated with king tides, which are excessively high tides caused by lunar and solar cycles.

Portugal's location in southern Europe makes it an ideal location to visit any time of the year, but mid-spring is all the more enchanting. While much of Europe is still rainy and chilly in April, the average temperature in Lisbon hovers in the high 60s. That makes exploring the city all the more pleasant.

While Ireland might not be the first destination that comes to mind for an April vacation in Europe, trust us, it's worth it. Temperatures are pretty mild — averaging around 55 degrees Fahrenheit — and it usually only rains about nine days out of the month. Of course, this is Ireland, and weather can change on a dime, so you'll still need to be prepared for potential wet days.

Yes — Paris is always a good idea. And Paris in April is a particularly good idea, as this already pretty city is bursting with early blooms. You'll have to contend with the possibility of wet weather — on average the city sees eight days of rain in April — but that's all the more excuse to tuck into a romantic cafe, or hit up one of Paris' incredible museums, like the Musee d'Orsay or the Louvre.
