Top Places to Travel in March

As we make the transition from Winter to Spring, March serves as the time to travel somewhere warm while it’s still pre-tourist season. We’ve rounded up the four best global spots for planning the perfect trip, check out the full details below!

Tulum, Mexico

With near perfect Spring temps, Tulum is the ideal transitional city between winter and summer. The weather’s just right for going to the beach without having to deal with the hoard of summer tourists.

 

If you’re looking for a chill place where you can get around by foot and eat incredible food, this is the place for you.

 

The food scene is one of the best in the world, with top chefs opening niche restaurants that serve authentic cuisine that bursts with flavor.

 

If you’re looking for exploration and adventure, there are plenty of ruins for you to find some of Tulum’s best-hidden gems.

 

Top restaurants to hit include Hartwood (highly recommend the short ribs), Posada Margherita (authentic & fresh pasta) and after-dinner cocktails at Gitano (the mezcal margarita is amazing!)

Kyoto, Japan

One of the best parts about transitioning into spring is the amount of beautiful and colorful flowers that instantly brighten the outdoors and make everything more vibrant and cheerful.

If you have an affinity for flowers, Kyoto should be at the top of your bucket list. Kyoto is home to some of the world’s finest cuisine, thousands of ancient temples, spring festivals, and lush gardens filled with stunning cherry blossoms.

Japan’s 2019 forecast for peak bloom states that Somei Yoshino (cherry) trees are expected to arrive on March 18 and reach full bloom by March 25, as reported by Travel and Leisure.

Plan an exciting day with a trip to the Nishiki Market for tasty street food, a stroll to the Fushimi-Inari-Taisha shrine with vibrant red vermillion tori spread across the mountainside, and cap it off with with a taste of Ki-No-Bi in situ — Japan’s first small batch gin made in Kyoto!

Dublin, Ireland

If you’re searching for an exciting St. Patrick’s Day experience, Dublin is the haven for an authentic and celebratory time, and there’s no better time to travel than in March.

On Sunday, March 17, Dublin’s Temple Bar neighborhood will host the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade — an entertaining event filled with costumes, dancing, pints of Guinness, and pubs.

The winding maze-like streets are filled with charming pubs, delicious restaurants, and electrifying nightlife.

If you’re planning to go for a long weekend, start your visit with a trip to the Jameson Distillery, which has been making authentic whiskey for over 200 years.

Then, head over to the Guinness Storehouse, where you can learn about Ireland’s rich history and top it off with a pint at the rooftop Gravity Bar.

Dublin residents tend to steer clear of the Temple Bar pub crawl so if you’re looking for a quieter visit, do as the locals do and book a delightful Airbnb with dinner at The Vintage Kitchen, a marvelous tiny restaurant that’s also one of the highest-rated in the neighborhood (the seafood is a must).

Tuscany, Italy

If you’re looking to book an ideal romantic getaway, look no further than Tuscany.

With wine soaked villages, rich artistic history, and expansive fields of olive groves and truffles, it’s a prime location for a relaxing trip filled with delectable wine and fare.

Since Tuscany is renowned for its rich history, soak up some authentic culture
at the Galleria degli Uffizi, the fine art museum that features famous work from Sandro Botticelli, Raphael, and Leonardo da Vinci.

After a morning at the museum, head to the Tenuta dell’Ornellaia estate in Maremma where you can enjoy a delicious wine tasting and walk along the lush, sprawling vineyard with incredible views of rolling hills.

Tuscany is brimming with natural hidden gems like the Rio Selvano for going hiking and canyoning, the Tuscan Archipelago for exploring the sea, and the valleys of the Garfagnana where tiny villages are surrounded by breathtaking mountain views.
