May is the perfect time to travel as not only is the weather the perfect blend of spring and summer, but it is right before summer vacation. It is the best time to catch the destinations before tourists swamp the area meaning that prices will still be relatively low!
Here are some recommendations of places worth checking out to visit this May:
Joshua Tree National Park, California
This California desert is filled with natural wonders and gorgeous man-made art installations. May is a great time to visit to avoid the summer heat. Take a hike on the numerous trails or go in time for the annual Joshua Tree Music Festival in mid-May to enjoy some music.
May is the perfect time to visit Louisville, Kentucky as the famous Kentucky Derby Races happen the first week in May. This tradition that began in 1875 still continues, so put on your best dress and make your way to Kentucky! Even if you visit later on in May, you will find horse racing theme al the way through the last weekend of May. Of course, there is more to Louisville than just the horse races, so make sure you spend time in the city as well.
Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
If you love the mountains, try and make it out to the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado this May. In 2015, it is the 100th Anniversary of the park, and there will be a variety of special activities and community events going on to celebrate. The beauty of the Rocky Mountains is indescribable in words and is something you will need to experience in person.
San Antonio, Texas
San Antonio, Texas is vibrant city that must be visited. From the River Walk to the Alamo, you will learn both about the history of the place and also see the economic advancements of the city. May is the perfect month to go as there are celebrations almost every weekend. Go for the Cinco de Mayo festival at the historic Market Square, or A Wine and Culinary Arts Festival celebrating Mexican and Latin American culture on May 13-17.
Not specifically a destination, but make your first visit to the beach this May. As Memorial Weekend officially kicks off summer, a fun trip to the closest beach may be the best way to wave goodbye to spring and officially welcome in summer. Take a PICO Compact Foldable Arm Chair and pack a picnic with this Winecoat so that you can have chilled wine while relaxing at the beach.
Whatever mini-vacation you choose in May will be a welcomed teaser to the summer that is just a few steps away!
