Spring may be a better choice for your vacation since everyone else is traveling during the summer, making prices for accommodation and everything else more expensive than at other seasons. In some travel destinations high season don’t start until the end of April or even in May. If you’re early you will get more reasonable prices and no crowds invading the same place. More paradise peace for your money.
Another bonus you get is that the trees and flowers are in early bloom, so make sure you choose an area that is generous with natural beauty.

There is so much stuff to do in the festive area. You can easily spend days there without a moment’s boredom. Eat at one of the many restaurants along the walk, have a drink at one of the bars, shop for gifts at one of the boutiques or take a boat ride.
In addition to the River Walk, visit the San Antonio zoo and Seaworld San Antonio.
If you plan well in advance, you can find good airfare before the airlines raise rates for summer travel. There are parts of Europe that are exceptionally beautiful in the spring – these include France and southern Germany.

All in a good, relaxed pace making you more relaxed than ever on your vacation. No press, no stress to get anywhere before the crowds. Just you and the genuine joy of exploring something new.
