If you’re looking for a great place to see in the springtime, and you want to do it in the United States, here are five great spots to choose from. Visitors traveling under the Visa Waiver Program with also need to fill out an ESTA visa application, but soon after, you’ll be winging your way to one of these great spots.
• Washington D.C.: The US capital is enthralling at any time of year, but during the spring, there are even more events and sights. For instance, the Cherry Blossom Festival and Parade take place in the spring, celebrating the emergence of the gorgeous blossoms.
• The Grand Canyon: If you want to be surrounded by nature and maybe even go hiking, the Grand Canyon in Arizona is a wonderful place to start. This national park centers around the giant gulf whittle out by the Colorado River over centuries. It is a truly awe-inspiring place, and it is even more beautiful in the spring when the cacti and other native plants are in full bloom.
• New York City: This iconic US metropolis offers plenty of things to do any time of the year, but springtime offers the best weather for strolling past shops on Fifth Avenue or laying out by a pond in Central Park. It is also the time of the Macy’s Flower Exhibition; it’s different every year, and the store goes all out with floral arrangements. A trip to Chelsea Pier or the Brooklyn Bridge is also very pleasant in the mild weather.
• US Virgin Islands: An ESTA US Visa is also necessary for this beautiful location. You can spend time on St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John, or all three. St. Thomas is best known for offering a relaxing vacation combined with lots of shopping. St. Croix is much less visited, but if you are interested in the history of the islands, the sugar plantations are very worth seeing. St. John is a largely undisturbed area perfect for those wishing to get away from the world and enjoy nature.
• Hawaii: Anywhere in Hawaii will offer beautiful Pacific views. However, one of the most popular today is the Big Island. There are volcano national parks, historical sites, and of course, beaches.
Wherever you decide to go, the US is a big place, so you’re sure to find good use for any ESTA US visas you happen to apply for.
