  • 5 Inspiring Spring Destinations for the Artist Within

    Just as winter is reserved the grandeur of whole cities covered in snow, autumn the richness of fragrances and tastes and summertime the blessing of the sun, springtime is, above all, simply inspiring. If there is one season pushing us to go outside and awakening our adventure spirit, that can only be spring.

    With all the songs, paintings and love poems praising the spring, no matter that this season often seems over-saturated with romanticism. But it is equally true that there is no better time to let yourself guided by inspiration, grab a camera and let loose the artist within. Traveling across Southern USA, you will discover the most amazing, breathtaking spring sceneries:

    Asheville, North Carolina

    The little city of Asheville, North Carolina might not be as cosmopolitan as New York or as history-infused as Washington DC, but it’s a brilliant destination for any early traveler. Whether you are an art freak or an extreme mountaineer, you will found Asheville more than pleasing. Its intense cultural life and the proximity of Blue Ridge Mountains make Asheville a successful candidate for the best spring time destination in the whole country.

    Yosemite National Park, California

    With its glacial valley, monumental rocks and iconic waterfalls, Yosemite National Park is by no means an unknown destination. But noting can enhance Yosemite’s natural assets that springtime, when waterfalls are overfed by the melting snow, the first climbers are musing on their plans to conquer El Capitan (world’s biggest monolith) and up in the Yosemite highlands, wildflowers are blooming free and undisturbed.

    John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Florida

    Compared to other Florida sights, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is almost a new comer on the state’s attraction map. But due to Florida’s warm weather, the months of April and may make just the perfect time to explore the hidden treasures of America’s only living coral reef: underwater shipwrecks, exotic fish and strangely shaped corals are only a few of the parks attractions, not to count its great potential for water sports like scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking or just plain old swimming.

    Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Texas

    What most of the United States interprets as the relatively warm spring weather, in the vast and hot desert of Texas translates by perfect weather. April is the best time to visit the the Lone Star State, which becomes the host of a breathtaking show: the blooming of dozens of species of fragile, multicolored desert flowers. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center near Austin is the ultimate destination for those in search for color and ephemeral beauty.

    Santa Cruz, California

    If you’re looking for a warm destination that is both tourist friendly and infused with local flavour, maybe you should start thinking of Santa Cruz, California. A bohemian city in an extravagant state, Santa Cruz is widely appreciated for its scenic beaches, independent theater companies and relaxed atmosphere. Among the top rated activities that one can enjoy in Santa Cruz are watching an independent movie, hanging out with the surfers and exploring the hundreds of square miles of state parks and beaches.
