7 Travel Spots That Avoid Spring Break

Stocks in this article: AXP OWW DAL JBLU ALK

British Columbia
The Pacific Northwest spent the winter getting slammed by weather usually reserved for frigid Midwest states and Nor'easter-inundated coastal towns. If any place is ready to embrace visitors willing to bring some spring with them, it's British Columbia.

The flower gardens will just be blooming in Victoria, where a package at Accent Inns Victoria with a room and access to Butchart Gardens goes for $140 a night. In Vancouver, meanwhile, the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival from April 5-28 offers visitors maps of all the best tree walks and a seat for the annual haiku invitationals. The city makes it easier to stop and smell the blossoms by offering a third-night-free hotel promotion.

As SmarterTravel found, the province is teeming with activities including the Mountain Spring Festival in Panorama Mountain Village (April 6-9), the spring Night Market in Richmond and the BC Open Gold Panning Championships in Cherryville (May 18-20). It also comes fairly cheap at the time, as prebought lift-ticket rates at B.C. slopes drop by 30% or more and a three-night package at the Echo Valley Ranch & Spa that goes for nearly $1,500 in July can be had for $925 through April.
