Early springtime offers a plethora of vacation ideas
for two. Whether you are escaping the cold of northern climes to head to the tropics or are looking for just the right domestic destination for a honeymoon or other journey, you will find a wealth of ideas that fit your budget, dreams and March time frame.
The main Hawaiian Islands---Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Hawaii (the Big Island), Lanai and Molokai---have been favorite romantic destinations since the first commercial steamers arrived in the 1800s. Each island has a distinct flavor and offers a distinctive experience. If you are looking for beaches, Maui presents the natural choice; for adventure and geological wonders, visitors favor the Big Island; for hiking and sheer beauty, Kauai is incomparable. Temperate year round and cooled by trades, Hawaii is a destination that offers couples the ultimate tropical experience without having to leave the United States.
Visitors flock to Los Cabos at the southern end of Baja California, for world-class recreational choices, including sport fishing, whale watching, beachgoing or enjoying Cabo's famous night life. The resort cities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo offer a number of oceanfront resorts with affordable prices and an attractive climate sure to appeal to couples who want to take a springtime vacation.
Located an hour and a half east of Los Angeles, the Coachella Valley presents numerous choices for couples who want to indulge in a nearby, warm weather break from other parts of Southern California. Including the cities of Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, La Quinta and Desert Hot Springs, the Coachella Valley offers ideal recreational and vacation opportunities for couples, including golf, tennis and spas. Palm Springs weather in March is usually perfect.
